Writing Talk With Hank Phillippi Ryan and Tilia Klebenov Jacobs

I had a chance to see these two literary lights, the well-known Hank Philippi Ryan and Tilia Klebenov Jacobs, both Sisters in Crime,  They were there to talk about their lives and careers, and writing- how they do it, from selecting titles to coming up with stories.
Here they are with recent books they wrote: Hank's The Wrong Girl and Tilia's Wrong Place, Wrong Time.

We were hosted by the Randall Public Library in Stow, MA. A big thank-you to the staff who made it all possible.

They decided to make it an informal chat than a lecture- more personal and more fun.

And afterward, they were able to meet with the crowd and sign books

And every successful writer needs a support crew- so their husbands were there, shown here bookending Ray Daniel, who also happens to have a book coming out, Terminated. That book launches at the New England Mobile Bookfair on Wed night, Aug 6th.

A great event, showing what a treat it is to meet the top mystery writers and find out more about how it all happens.


  1. This is so fabulous! Thoughtful and perceptive. And I am so thrilled and touched to see it..and delighted that you took the time to share it.. Somehow you captured the feeling of the evening just perfectly.. Thank you! zoo

  2. Hank- Glad to spread the good word on great events. This was a nice night, and you and Tilia gave excellent insight into a busy life and the writing process.
