Maybe he just looks more successful. I took a class in mystery writing he
taught a few years ago, and found him a very pleasant, articulate, and good
looking guy. He's actually from Louisiana. Around Baton Rouge, I think. He
said one thing I found interesting. Each book has some foundation in his own
life. For instance, the one in which the actress goes to Louisiana to search
for her family origin is based on the fact that he was adopted.
