Join us for a discussion with:

  • Cara Black. The San Francisco writer is known for her 14 Aimée Léduc novels about a private investigator in Paris, which she has been writing at a pace of nearly one per year since 1998. She has been nominated for multiple Anthony and Macavity Awards.

  • Rhys Bowen. The highly prolific Bowen—author of more than three dozen books in the Lady Georgiana, Molly Murphy and Constable Evan Evans series—is a two-time Agatha Award winner. Originally from England, she now lives in San Francisco.
  • Catriona McPherson. McPherson is known for her nine Dandy Gilver novels. Set mainly Scotland between the world wars, the novels feature a bumbling sleuth who solves crimes with persistence and charm.

  • Terry Shames. Shames writes about the fictional town of Jarret Creek in her real home state of Texas in her Samuel Craddock mystery series. Her 2013 debut mystery, “A Killing at Cotton Hill,” won a Top Five Debut Novel award from MysteryPeople, which also made her follow-up, “The Last Death of Jack Harbin,” a Pick of the Month selection.
