I gave up on Cornwell a few years' back. She went off the deep end, accusing negative reviews of her books as part of a Bush Administration conspiracy. I kid you not. Then, she tossed in the battle over Ruth Graham's burying place ... it was wild. Some media covered it.
I talked to someone associated with a "Night with the Author" program in Fort Worth ... when Cornwell came a few years back, she had HEAVY security with her. They said it was like she thought she was the president or something.
I wish her editors would sit down and really, really talk to her ... tell her that what she's been phoning in won't do ... she's so much better than what she's released. She used to be my favorite.
