Events/Calendar

If you would like to know more about me and my books, this is where you can find me during the fall of 2018.  Stay tuned, because more events are being added all the time.

 ♦ Thursday to Sunday, September 6-9 I’ll be at Bouchercon in St. Petersburg, Florida. On Thursday afternoon (September 6) at 4:00 p.m. I’ll be participating in a panel discussion on LGBTQ characters and themes in crime fiction.  Moderated by publicist extraordinare Dana Kaye, the other panelists will be writers John Copenhaver, Stephanie Gayle, JM Redmann and Alison R Soloman. I’m certain we’ll have a rocking discussion!  B’con is the biggest crime writing conference of them all, and I’m looking forward to being there and in the company of so many writer friends. If you plan to attend, please find me and say hello. FMI: http://www.bouchercon.com/
