RIP Elmore Leonard 1925 - 2013!
A writer of hard boiled fiction thrillers!
A writer who proved that there is no set rule or formula to write a good book!
World class writers and prolific readers of great fiction stories are sad, because...
Elmore Leonard died today.
A master (in my opinion), of fiction and dialogue, Elmore Leonard has entertained and informed on life in the US. Other works have been set outside the USA. Books like Djibouti and Get Shorty had an international flavour.
Many of his books have been made into successful movies, including Get Shorty, Out of Sight, Rum Punch which later became Jackie Brown, just a few of his writing that were adapted for the big screen.

I will definitely miss his writing.
