Hi. Captain Gabe Duran. Corpus Christi Fire Department. How are you?
When Carol created me for IN NAME ONLY, she said she didn't know much about firefighters except they put out fires and made sexy calendars. I told her if she wanted to write about us, she needed to learn. She set me aside for a few weeks, and when she came back, she knew what we were made of. And she didn't waste any time.
She brought in a couple of beers, sat down across from me, and said, "Talk. I want to know everything about you."
"I'm a busy man. What's in it for me?"
She showed me a photo of Summer Newcombe. "This woman is going to need your help."
What can I say? By the time I finished talking, Carol knew it all - even some things that were probably better left secret seeing all the trouble they caused.
Today Carol's over at Elizabeth Spann Craig's blog, Mystery Writing Is Murder. She didn't say, but I know she'd like you to stop in and say hi if you have time.
Good talking to you. I'm on duty today, and I need to work out. Unless we get a call, I'll be around.
