L.J. Washburn is Livia's pseudonym, although I sometimes contribute plotting help and what little editing skills I have. As I recall, I didn't do much on the Black Moon stuff. Bob Randisi came up with the general storyline. There was one more book in the series, but it was never published because Lynx Books went out of business before it could come out.

  Browsing my neighborhood used bookstore today I came across a book
  called The Black Moon, which is a collaboration between Loren
  Estleman, Ed Gorman, W.R. Philbrick, Robert Randisi and L.J. Washburn
  (This is the pseudonym James Reasoner and his wife use writing
  together, isn't it?). It appears each author wrote a section of the
  book. It looks like an interesting idea. Has anyone else read it? The
  cover promises "A Spectacular New Direction in Mystery." Was this a
  one off, or were there more books of this sort?
