Sisters in Crime Mystery Author Extravaganza—Saturday, December 1

The Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime is hosting its annual end-of-year Mystery Author Extravaganza on Saturday, December 1—this year with some extra extravaganzaness: 26 authors taking part! And I’m pleased to be one of them, along with my wife, Tara Laskowski, too.

This year’s event is at the Reston Regional Library, 11925 Bowman Towne Drive, Reston, VA, and the program starts at 1 p.m.—with book sales gearing up a half-hour before that, thanks to Tom and Kathy Harig of Mystery Loves Company, one of our favorite local booksellers and a great supporter of our region’s mystery community.

Each author will have a couple of minutes to share information about their publications and other news this year. I’ll be talking, for example, about a couple of stories I published, including “English 398: Fiction Workshop” in the July/August issue of Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.

In addition to my wife and me, participating authors include William Ade, Donna Andrews, E.A. Aymar, Karen Cantwell, Maya Corrigan, Barb Goffman, Sherry Harris, Eleanor Cawood Jones, Libby Klein, Maureen Klovers, Eileen McIntire, Adam Meyer, Melinda Mullett, Alan Orloff, Josh Pachter, Shari Randall, Susan Reiss, Verena Rose, Colleen Shogan, Shawn Reilly Simmons, Lane Stone, Robin Templeton, Cathy Wiley, and Stacy Woodson.

We look forward to seeing many friends, fellow writers, and fans there!
