For those of you who know of my well-documented aversion to modern technology, it must be a surprise to find me on the Internet. For nearly two decades my fictional private investigator, Sharon McCone, and I resisted computers, but today I'm writing this on a Mac, and she's probably running a search on hers. We've come a long way! Thanks for your patience until I made my slow entry into the twenty-first century. I greatly appreciate the support you've given McCone and me over the years.
