That's crime fiction author Reed Farrel Coleman, whom I met while he was in San Francisco at Bouchercon (essentially a Comic-Con for mystery fans.) One drink led to another, resulting, as so often, in a pretending-to-read photo.

I had read, and really enjoyed, his book The James Deans even before I stumbled across some nice things he had to say about King Dork on the internet. So we indulged in some mutual appreciation and lager, and discussed writing and publishing and what-not, including the question "do you plan to write a real novel someday?" which crime fiction writers, it turns out, get just as often as teen fiction writers.

His new one is Innocent Monster. Check it out.

I like his Cheap Trick-style t-shirt! Very cool.

Reed writes for our magazine and is great about pimping it with the t-shirt.

If you'd like to buy a shirt shoot me an emial.
