If you would like to know more about me and my books, this is where you can find me during the summer and fall of 2019.  Stay tuned, because more events are being added all the time.

♦  On Thursday, July 11 I’ll be at Walker Memorial Library in Westbrook with my good friend and colleague Richard Cass. We plan to do brief readings and interview each other on the topic “The Health Benefits of Murder Mysteries: How Reading Crime Fiction Can Ease the Stress of Modern Life.” This event will be in the beautiful Gathering Room from 6 – 7 p.m., and is free and open to the public. The Walker Memorial Library is at 800 Main Street. FMI: 207-854-0630.

 ♦ On Friday and Saturday, October 18-19, I’ll be at the beautiful, historic Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor, Maine for the fifth annual Murder By The Book conference along with a lineup of terrific writers from Maine and away. A ticketed wine reception on Friday from 5:30 – 8  includes readings by the entire crew of work in progress. A full slate of panel discussions and workshops happens Saturday from 9 am – 4 pm.
