Rhode Island Author Show

We had a good time at the Rhode Island Author Show last week, at the Cumberland Library.
Thanks to Aaron Coutu and all the staff who made it possible.


Lots of authors old and new, with the public coming in to browse and buy.





We had a good showing from the NE chapter of Sisters in Crime, with a few members.

Debut author Nicole Asselin, with her mom on the right and Barbara Struna behind in the middle.

For those interested, Wayne Barber has a show where he features authors. Contact him for more info.

Happy New Year- New Display of Latest Book

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Let's hope this one is less fraught than last year...

One good way to start the year is by seeing a place that displays my latest book, A Darkened Room, the 6th Zack Taylor novel.

The place- none other than the Brookline, MA Library, who put up a special display of local mystery authors over the holidays and a bit beyond.

Check it out...


Hey, writers, how about more of us contact local libraries for other displays of this kind. Lots more free promo, and interest for them.
