Our Tribe: The Malmons

Our Tribe By Kristi Belcamino This is a very special column for me to write this month because the couple I’m featuring, Dan and Kate Malmon, holds a special place in my heart.

OUR TRIBE by Kristi Belcamino

We are happy to present a new on going column in CrimeSpree: Our Tribe from Kristi Belcamino. She’ll be introducing people from the mystery community who are a big part of our tribe, though not necessarily writers. OUR TRIBE: Getting to know peeps in the crime fiction world By Kristi Belcamino   Long before I ever had an agent or book deal I would visit Once Upon a Crime bookstore in Minneapolis and dream of seeing a book I wrote on the shelves. So, when I did get a book deal, I immediately approached the owners, Pat Frovarp and Gary Shulze, and asked if I could hold my book launch party there. This gem of a bookstore is small,...
