Killer Nashville 2017

 

It’s that time again! Writers of mystery, thrillers, crime – everything related – look forward to this weekend in August. Dates this year are August 25-27. I am on a panel about true crime, talking about An Unfinished Canvas and A Season of Darkness, books I co-authored that followed two high-profile crimes in Nashville. Conference information is available at www.killernashville.com if you’re interested in the full schedule.

Lost Innocence Audiobook

My first audiobook!

“Lost Innocence” was a narrative I wrote for an anthology of true crime stories in the Twentieth Century. My story tells of the Marcia Trimble murder, which shook Nashville to its core in 1975 and was not solved for more than three decades.

The tragic story appears in its entirety in A Season of Darkness (Berkley, 2009), co-authored with Doug Jones. The abbreviated version, along with more than a dozen true crime stories, appears in Masters of True Crime (Prometheus, 2012).

It was exciting to hear the reading on the audiobook!

Book Signing at Parnassus!

Please put Sunday, April 9, 2:00 p.m. on your calendar!

I will be at Parnassus Bookstore. Join me at this charming venue to visit with other writers and readers, enjoy some shamrock cookies, and talk about Secrets and Shamrocks. I am interested to hear your comments. I will read a couple of excerpts and answer your questions.
