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

On Monday, March 5 at 7pm I’ll be at Portland Stage Company as one of five Maine crime writers whose work will be given staged readings by PSC actors. Join me and Chris Holm, Barbara Ross, Lea Wait and Richard Cass for a fun evening followed by a post-performance discussion when the writers take the stage for no-holds-barred chat with the audience. This year the actors will be reading a scene from Cover Story, my second Joe Gale book. If you attended last year’s event, you know not to miss this! Portland Stage Company, 25 Forest Avenue, Portland.

On Friday, June 1 at 4 pm I’ll be at the Maine Crime Wave in Portland, Maine, moderating a panel discussion between domestic suspense authors Daniel Palmer and Joseph Souza about writing compelling endings. This event is free! It’s part of a two-day conference where celebrated thriller (and thrilling nonfiction) author Douglas Preston will be honored with the 2018 Maine Crimemaster Award. FMI:

Seventh floor, Glickman Library, University of Southern Maine, 314 Forest Avenue, Portland.

 ♦ 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:

On Thursday, September 20 from 7-8 pm I’ll be at Fifth Maine Regiment Museum on beautiful Peaks Island, Maine, talking about my writing process with the brilliant memoirist Elizabeth Peavey.
