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 2017.  Stay tuned, because more events are being added all the time.

On Sunday, May 21 from 1 – 3 p.m. I’ll be taking part in Sisters in Crime’s annual Murder By The Minute event, a group reading at Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick. Together with SinC members Gayle Lynds, Kate Flora, Maureen Milliken, Kate Cone and Gin Mackey I’ll be reading a five-minute passage from my work and talking about mystery writing.

May 25 at 7:00 p.m I will be at the North Gorham Public Library, Two Standish Neck Road, Gorham, reading from Quick Pivot and talking about my journey as a published author.

On July 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. I will be at Books in Boothbay, a terrific annual celebration of all things Maine and literate. Here’s a link for more information:

July 13 at 2:00 p.m.  I will be ferrying out to Great Diamond Island for a return reading at Elwell Hall, where I always have such a wonderful time. Can’t wait!

♦    Also on July 13, from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. I will be reading at the Popham Beach Public Library as part of their summer series featuring Maine writers. This should be fun!

On October 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. I will be at Autumnfest in Bath, the beautiful City of Ships on the Kennebec River. Autumnfest is a city-wide celebration with much to do and see. Here is a link for more information about it:

October 13-15 I will be at Bouchercon, the biggest crime writing conference of them all, which takes place in Toronto this year. It will be my first visit to T.O., and I am looking forward to being there and in the company of so many writer friends.

♦    November 10 -12 I will be at New England Crime Bake at the Hilton in Woburn, Massachusetts. Crime Bake is the annual conference (party?) of crime writers from the New England region and beyond. Best-selling thriller writer Lisa Gardner is the guest of honor this year and the master classes and panels are stocked with other great writers.

I’m currently scheduling a number of additional readings at libraries throughout Maine and visits to book groups.  Watch this page for updates.

If you would like me to come to your library, coffee house, community center, or book group to speak about Truth Beat or the Joe Gale Series generally, please drop me a note at and we’ll set it up!
