From The Booking Desk:

I was a fan of Dan Malmon’s reviews for Crimespree Magazine long before I connected with him online, which was long before I met him in person. Despite the fact that he is hug-a-phobic and lots of people are trying to kill him, you can’t help but like the guy. (Speaking of killing him, you can still order the charity short story anthology in which many of your favorite authors find unique ways to off Malmon – and purchasing it benefits a worthy cause; albeit not being so good for Dan’s personal lifespan. Just follow this link!). His answers to our composite sketch questions made me smile – for many reasons – they are just *so Dan.” I think you will enjoy them as well.

Name: Dan Malmon
Location: The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul

This person from my personal life is such an inspiration:

**looks up, sees wife glaring at me from the couch** KATE. My wife Kate Malmon. Of course. Heh.

One of the people I admire most in the crime fiction community is:

Erin Mitchell. Her twitter bio says that she “Connects books and readers.” And that’s what she does. She’s also a total badass and one of our dearest friends in this community or any other.

STALKER ALERT! If this fictional character were real, they would likely need to get a restraining order against me:

I always figured I’d end up as Nick and Nora Charles’s designated driver. Those two should never be allowed behind the wheel.

People are always surprised that I am a fan of this individual (singer, actor, or artist):

Tom Jones. I’ve seen Tom Jones five times. In Las Vegas as well as here in Minnesota.

My personal catch phase is (or should be):

“If you don’t like a series (books, comics, movies, TV) don’t buy it/read it/watch it. Life is too short to consume media out of spite.”
