Saturday so far

I turned the computer off around 11:30 p.m.  I stayed up reading Beautiful Girl for some time.  I went to bed a little after 2:00 a.m.  It took me a while to get to sleep.  My alarm went off at 10:00 a.m., but I turned it off and went back to sleep until 11:00 a.m.

Mom had been talking about going to the beach, so I thought she and Dad had gone without me.  It turned out they were just out shopping, though.  When they came back, Mom said she wanted to go to Trader Joe's.

Slightly later: Jax posted on the Goodreads Backlot Gay Book forum that Josh Lanyon had revealed that she was a woman.  The person I first saw saying that was cruel to other authors and to readers, cursing them out in public and everything, so I was skeptical.  I'll have to adjust my worldview on my thoughts about Josh, but I'd been hearing that as a rumor for years, including from people much more kind-hearted than that first person.

Racheline Maltese posted that Dreamspinner Press was having a sale, so I got the books by her and Erin McRae.

A couple of hours later: Mom and I went to Trader Joe's.  It was a productive trip.  We had a cooler bag for the cold foods, so we could stop briefly on the way home.  We stopped at the local independent bookstore so Mom could pick up books for her church library.

Later: I talked with A.J. a couple of times.  I got an episode of "The Borgias" in.

Added: I consulted a reference book.  Here was my post about it on the Gay Book forum:
I looked in The Gay Male Sleuth in Print and Film: A History and Annotated Bibliography by Drewey Wayne Gunn (recommended, by the way). It's from 2005, and I hope there's a new edition sometime. It has an entry for Colin Dunne and one for Josh Lanyon.

The Colin Dunne one has in the author bio: Dunne, Colin (Diane L. Browne)

The author is a Los Angeles native who has written novels under a variety of pseudonyms and has co-edited an anthology of fantasy stories, Sigil(2001). She seems to have some connection with Josh Lanyon (see below)

The mystery listed is Murder in Pastel.

The information listed for Josh Lanyon is: The author lives in California. He seems to have some connection with Colin Dunne (see above).

The two mysteries listed for Josh are the first two in the Adrien English Mysteries.
