*tapping microphone* Ahem. Um. Yes, well, they said I had to get up here and introduce myself. I keep remembering the lines of an old song, "please to meet you, hope you get my name" - yeah, well.
I am the goofball of the group. I write those silly things, cozies, and try my hardest to keep your funny bone going while you help solve the crime. My characters are from the southern US, and are so southern, in fact, (just as I am) that you will almost smell the cabbage as it simmers on the stove.
And I am so proud to be a member of this group, that I am fairly bouncing in my seat. You're going to love it here or my name ain't Kim Smith, and I can assure you it is. Even though it sounds faker than a four dollar bill, it's who I really am. You can call home and ask my male spousal unit.
So, I will leave the stage now, and let the more eloquent speakers take over, but y'all just wait! This place is gonna be jumping like a pond full of frogs! Whoo wee!
