On April 5, I’ll be in Calgary, participating in Noir at the Bar, along with: Niall Howell, Susan Calder, PJ Donison, Susan Jane Wright, Sarah L. Pratt, Julie Hiner and special guest, Dave Sweet, who will be reading from his book, Skeletons in my Closet.

So do come. It’ll take place on April 5 at the Hose and Hound Pub, 1030 9 Ave SE, Calgary. Come for 6:30 p.m. to fetch your drink and nibblies. The readings start at 7:00 p.m.

If you’re in the Calgary area on November 22…

…and you’re up for a night of crime, come to Owl’s Nest Books, at 815a 49 Ave SW, Calgary, for readings by six Alberta writers: PD Workman, Alice Bienia, Lisa Bush, Julie Hiner, L.L. Abbott, and me. I’ll be reading from the first Mendenhall Mystery, The Shoeless Kid. The readings, organized by Crime Writers of Canada and supported by Owl’s Nest Books, are from 7 to 9 p.m. (That’s on Tuesday, Nov. 22.)

Come early and browse, then stay for the readings. I guarantee you’ll find something you’ll want to pick up as a Christmas gift!
