I should be waking up in Monterey, CA today, for the start of Left Coast Crime, one of the most popular conferences for mystery readers and writers. A long weekend of panels on all aspects of crime fiction and nonfiction, hosted at a hotel a short walk from the Monterey Bay wharf. Tough duty.

Among the many features are 2 auctions, one silent, one live, to benefit a local charity. Here’s my contribution this year– a miniature writing scene (regular size nail file included for scale). Note that the vase is a *real* bullet casing. I’ll be back next week with a report and more photos!

    I’m happy to report that the item went for $275, for the benefit of Monterey library
    literacy programs. I seldom put my own books in scenes. Classics and bestsellers get more money for charity!

    I don’t see a copy of one of your books in this scene. (I can’t read the print on the lowest book, but it doesn’t look like one of yours.)

    Do you make all your miniatures or just assemble them?

    Love it! Especially the bullet casing vase. Perfect auction item!
