LAST RESORT Town Hall Reading at Vroman’s

Today sixteen contributors will read a brief excerpt from their story in the latest Sisters in Crime / LA anthology, LAST RESORT. That’s every single contributor! Plus two editors will be there along with our chapter prez. I’ll read a brief excerpt from “Nut Job” as well as answer any Q&A our chapter prez throws at us. It should be a fun time and I’m excited to check out a new bookstore. Can you believe I’ve never been to Vroman’s? Yeah, me neither.

Hope to see you later today at 4pm!

Today I’ll be reading an excerpt from my short story “Nut Job” from LAST RESORT, the latest Sisters in Crime / LA anthology, at The Last Bookstore in DTLA. It should be a good time.

LA TIMES FESTIVAL OF BOOKS POST WRAP-UP

What a fun weekend despite the rain on Saturday (and Basil computer breakdowns but that’s a different story entirely). It didn’t deter the book-loving crowds though! I had a blast hanging out with signing mates Lida Sideris, Tammy Kaehler, James Ziskin, and Nancy Cole Silverman at the Sisters in Crime booth. It was great to re-connect with old friends and meet new mystery lovers.
