A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of attending Lisle Noir, a French mystery and thriller festival in Lisle-sur-Tarn. I mostly hung around with my writer buddies and bought a bunch of French mysteries with my daughter, so I have some new authors to discover. I also translated for Roger J. Ellory, who participated in a round table and needed some help with the French. I also met Lilja Sigurdardottir, an Icelandic author who also spoke English. Great fun, and a reminder of why I started Le French Book.
