I, along with about 100 other authors, will be taking part in the 7th Annual Rhode Island Author Expo this coming Saturday, December 7. The event is held at Rhodes on The Pawtuxet in Cranston, RI from 10:00 to 4:30. All types of books will be represented, from mystery to non-fiction to children’s books. If you’re in the area, please stop by. Admission and parking are both free. Remember, a signed book makes a wonderful gift.
I just got back from a road trip in California doing research for an upcoming book. Stopped in Salinas to visit my friend John Steinbeck. It’s always good to see him.
This past week. I took part in a mystery authors’ panel discussion at the Ames Free Library in North Easton, MA. It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed having the opportunity to spend time with fellow mystery authors Debi Graham-Leard and Ray Anderson, as well as to meet some very nice local mystery fans. It’s always nice to connect with people.
In the past few weeks, two separate men, both of them radio talk show hosts, have asked me to kill them in a book. Odd coincidence, interesting challenge. I’ve figured out where and when to kill Tom Foie, but not how. I’m not yet sure how I’ll do in Jordan Rich.
I just taped an interview with Patti Abbate and Tom Foie for WATD 95.9 FM. This will air on Sunday September 8 at 7:00 PM.
The day my article was featured in the local newspaper, I went to the 7-11 to buy several copies. A group of men having their morning coffee looked at me and asked if I was indeed the Woman of Mystery on the front page. When I said yes, I was greeted with a round of applause. Fun!
Listen to the interview I did with WATD-FM 95.9.
