Gratefully Surrounded by Books

Patti Abbott, the author of Concrete Angel, kindly invited me recently to participate in her ongoing series about writers and their bookshelves. Each person is asked to respond to several questions, one of which elicited the following answer from me:
Who is your favorite fictional character?

This is certainly your most challenging question. I’m going to go with Nate Heller, Max Allan Collins’ Chicago-based private eye. Much of the reason has to do with Heller’s proximity to the famous and infamous characters of the 20th century. I’d love to have met Al Capone, Sally Rand, Bugsy Siegel, Bobby Kennedy, and Amelia Earhart, as Heller has over the years.
You will find the full post in Abbott’s Pattinase blog.
