I met Kelly Braffet a couple years ago when we were both guest “thriller” authors at the Southern Kentucky Book Festival. We were almost seated together, if not for the incongruous wedge of a perfectly pleasant “inspirational” writer. I don’t remember that author’s name, but she’d churned out about ten books in a couple years.
Ms. Inspiration asked me, “What do you write?”
“Noir,” I said, and she asked, “What’s that?”
“Sort of the opposite of yours,” I quipped.
