Lancaster Library Mystery Panel

We went to the lovely Lancaster, MA, Thayer Memorial Library for a “Death in Shorts” mystery short story panel, to promote Rogue Wave, the premier New England crime and mystery anthology.

Many thanks to Paula Castner and the library staff for hosting us. A great day with a lively discussion.

It featured local authors (L to R) me, Janet Halpin, Ruth M. McCarty, and Leslie Wheeler (an editor at Level Best Books), the moderator, who helped put the panel together, and done in conjunction with the Seven Bridges Writers Collaborative.

Great crowd who showed up, interested and engaged. Showing support (and bringing her family) was writer Ursula Wong, who answered a question on her research for her forthcoming book, Amber Wolf.

I pontificate...

Our panel. Most of us are Sisters in Crime, and we spoke on the fine art of murder...

Ruth does a reading

We look forward to more programs like this at the library, where writers meet readers.

More Signings! Me and other authors

Phew- it's a busy time. Recently had great book-signing visits to the libraries in Scarborough, Maine, and Danvers, MA.

Thursday night, the 11th, I'll be dropping by the New England Mobile Bookfair to see Ray Daniel  launch his latest book, along with the Wicked Cozy Writers. Should be a lot of fun.
(To see an interview with Ray Daniel, click here.)

Another drop-in is to the Chelmsford Library on Saturday, 6/13, to see their Local Authors Day, featuring the talented Ursula Wong. (To see an interview with Ursula, click here.)

Then I'm doing another panel at the Thayer Library in Lancaster, MA, on June 20th, for the Level Best Books anthology, Rogue Wave. We're starting early, so be there by 10:30 in the morning.

Then on Thursday, June 25th, I'm at Tatnuck Booksellers for a feature on 3 members of The Storyside: Ursula Wong, Vlad V., and myself, possibly reading from our collection Insanity Tales.

And then... up to Portland, Maine on Saturday the 27th for Portcon, a big convention, where I'll be signing books with the New England Horror Writers.

How's that for a schedule?
