Halloween . . .

 . . . is such a perfect time to discuss all things mystery!  And what better way to do that then by attending the Magna cum Murder conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, held at the historic Columbia Club!
I was thrilled to moderate the panel:  A Century of Change - Mysteries set in the 20th century.  Look who’s on it! Julie Mulhern, M. Ruth Meyers, and Caroline and Charles Todd!!

And in Other Exciting News . . .

So proud of the fact that the series has been picked up by the Bas Bleu catalog!  This is a huge milestone for me, and one which I’ve dreamed about for a long, long time.  Can’t believe it’s real!
Thanks so much to Sean Farjadi for having me as a guest on his podcast,
