I first met Diana Swayne by a series of happy coincidences. At the time, I had no idea that her father was the George Goodchild, one of the most prolific writers of detective fiction in the Golden Age. Happily, this discovery led to a fabulous article penned by Carol Westron in the May edition of Mystery People. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I encourage you to do so. He was a fascinating man.
So I asked her about it.

Hannah: What is the greatest gift or piece of advice that your father has given you?
