Mystery at the Bakery

Had a fun morning today- got up early to take part in a public reading of Murder by the Minute at Benson's Bakery & Cafe in Hudson, NH. It's a lovely little place, with tasty treats and drinks.

 We were a few hardy mystery authors from Sisters in Crime to read from our works in progress.
Sharon Daynard (left) put this together for our location- there were others around New England this weekend. Lisa Haselton (right) came for support.

Our enthusiastic audience and support crew seemed happy to munch and sip and listen. 

Reading from their work were Anne Macdonald (left) and Ruth McCarty (center). 
Dan (front) is author support crew.

It was a nice gathering and conversation after the works were read.  
Thanks to all those who took part- this is one of the fun parts of being an author.

Latest News and Event This Sunday

It's been a while since my last post- well, things have been busy.

Been writing up a storm- in a little than two weeks, sent out four pieces for submission.
Three of these were brand-new stories, including my two efforts for this year's anthology for Level Best Books (I've had stories in the last two), and double-subbed for the Al Blanchard Award, given out at Crime Bake. We'll see if they like either of them.

Have also been editing a really good book by another writer. That should be out this Summer.

This Sunday, I'll be part of a Sisters in Crime public reading from mystery authors:

MURDER BY THE MINUTE event at Benson's Bakery & Cafe in Hudson, NH
this Sunday April 17th, at 9:00 am-10:30 am.

Come on down and hear some works in progress. I'll be doing a piece from the fifth Zack Taylor novel I'm working on, A Sharp Medicine. Look for that one later this year.
