Events/Calendar

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 Friday and Saturday, May 31 – June 1, I’ll be at the Maine Crime Wave, a terrific writers and readers conference at the University of Southern Maine’s Glickman Library. On Saturday at 10 a.m. I’ll be taking part in a panel discussion moderated by Chris Holm with fellow Maine crime writers Lea Wait, James Hayman and Bruce Coffin about the different sub-genres that co-exist beneath the crime writing umbrella.

♦  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 Thursday, July 24, I’ll be at the Berwick Public Library with my pals Barbara Ross and Dick Cass spinning a murder mystery from clues provided by the audience.  Called “Making a Murder Mystery” this is a highly interactive, often raucous exercise, so bring your best ideas and your sense of humor. This event is from 6 – 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The Berwick Public Library is at 103 Old Pine Hill Road. FMI: 207-698-5737.

 ♦ 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.

 ♦    Friday through Sunday, November 8 – 10  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. The marvelous Ann Cleeves, author of the Vera Stanhope and Shetland mystery series among other books, is the guest of honor this year and the master classes and panels are stocked with other great writers.
