April 26  – We’re off to Omaha, NE for Paws in the Garden at The Potting Shed where we’ll visit with people and their pets and do a book signing.

May 1 – May 3  – We’ll hop a plane to Bethesda, MD for the Malice Domestic convention where we’ll get to chat with traditional mystery readers. We’re also on a panel discussing, Is Murder PC? Social Issues in Mysteries along with Alan Orloff, Susan Froetschel, and Cathy Wiley. 

June 6-7  – We’ll be on the road again to Chicago’s Printers Row Lit Fest with fellow Midwest Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime​ authors.
