As a humorous intro to my presentations, I list the number of murders I have so far accomplished in print:
Pushed off a high building (1)
Shot with a crossbow (1)
Bludgeoned to death (1)
Bludgeoned and then drowned (1)
Poisoned (2), including one shot in the bottom with a dart gun.
If you include the completed but unpublished works, there's a strangled, another bludgeoned, and a frightened to death by a six-foot pink rabbit.*
But I've never shot anyone with a gun containing bullets. Yet.
*I know, I know. I'd read that one, too. But it was a badly timed Sherlock Holmes parody, and no editor wanted it.
