I told Ellroy this, and showed him my author website on my phone that lists him as an inspiration. His response was a shoulder shrug and “eh.” Haha, I’m quite certain he hears devotionals like that all the time!
Anyway, great to have met him, and I placed a couple of my own titles on consignment at Vroman's while I was there, so it was a double win. Local and looking to pick up paperback copies of A WORLD OF HORROR or my collection, THAT WHICH GROWS WILD? Vroman's is your place!
