Hi, all. We've made a few changes to the OUTFIT for 2010, and I wanted to give everyone a heads-up. After 3 and 1/2 years (hard to believe we've been around this long), Sara Paretsky is retiring. She'll still be guest posting from time to time, so she won't be far away. Marcus Sakey is also stepping back a bit and will be sharing his spot.
With whom, you ask?
Please welcome Bryan Gruley, author of the acclaimed STARVATION LAKE, who calls Chicago home (even though his book is set in Michigan). His day job is the Chicago Bureau Chief of the Wall Street Journal, so I'm sure he'll have some interesting takes on what goes on in our fair city. Or not.
Jamie Freveletti, who hit the ground running (literally and figuratively) with RUNNING FROM THE DEVIL is also joining the Outfit. She's an attorney in another life (what is with Chicago, crime fiction, and lawyers?), a Martial Arts expert (do not mess with her in a dark alley), and a Mom.
Please welcome them to the OUTFIT. Rumor has it that Jamie will post tomorrow!
