Pam van Hylckama reported Thursday on Twitter (she blogs as Bookalicious) that a man tried to carjack her, but he was bitten by her dog and fled the scene. She reported it to police, who checked her email for any particularly virulent sounding threats. Apparently they saw one from a rejected author that seemed suspicious, went to the man's home and found bite marks on his arm.
She tweeted today @BookaliciousPam: "Thank you all. I'm waiting for phone calls to see if this guy is THE guy. Honestly, its hard for me to believe, I almost hope he's acquitted and my car jacking theory proves to be right. For those who asked, I love my job and have no plans to stop doing it."
