Some puzzling questions

My most puzzling questions as they relate to the Buddy Schumacher case are: *Where did the handkerchief come from that killed Buddy? With such a fancy letter embroidered, it certainly didn’t belong to the first man questioned, Edward Vreeland, a hobo hanging around the outskirts of town. Not that he might not have used it...

Costco book signings – Oct. 13, 2012

Part of the whirlwind tour of Milwaukee on Oct. 13 included two book signings at Costco Warehouses. First, in Grafton, then in Pewaukee. My wife and I had a lot of fun meeting people, eating free samples of food and selling some books. These photos are from the Pewaukee leg of the adventure.

The Mix has closed

The Mix, my favorite place to obtain crazy flavored cupcakes (maple bacon anyone?) AND old LPs has closed. The Columbus (Ind.) combination bakery/used record store is closing and moving to Bloomington. The folks there were kind enough to have my book available for sale there. I wish them luck in their new location!

We're going to assume that this book will be made into a movie in the near future. Who do you think would be a good actor to play Buddy's father, Art Schumacher?

Watch the Fox-6 TV interview
