Jon and Ruth Jordan are amazing people, a force in the genre and they love mysteries. The organized this years Bouchercon in Baltimore, gathering the 'tribe' of readers and writers and it felt like their own party for a few close thousand or so friends.

I'm from the Minneapolis area, not Chicago, but when Jon and Ruth heard I had reinvented myself from journalist to novelist, they welcomed me into the mystery world.
Jon called me as he was setting up panels for Bouchercon, and even though I was just a debut author, he made sure I got placed with a fun group of writers, and gave me the opportunity to put together an article for CrimeSpree on weaving reality into fiction.
It was great to see them again at Love is Murder. Wherever they moved, a crowd followed.

Jon and Ruth are gems of the mystery genre. And who else would brave "Two Girls, One Cup" with me other than the amazing Jon Jordan?
But seriously, I hope to see this couple continue to influence the mystery genre in such a positive way.
