Talk about combining business with pleasure! Next weekend I'll be staying at one of my favourite Ontario vacation spots, Port Elgin, to talk about humour in crime fiction. I'll be joined by fellow authors Gloria Ferris and Lynn C. Albrecht, with panel moderator Donna Warner, to talk about how we balance murder with comedy. In case you haven't tried it, it's not easy!
We'll be appearing at the Port Elgin Public Library at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 18. If you're in the area and tired of long walks on the beach, come and be entertained by us.
And if you want the perfect Halloween mystery, have a look at Town Haunts with Anna Nolan and her friends.
Cemetery caretaker Sherman Mason is horrified to hear his dead wife calling to him from beyond the grave. He asks newcomer Tiernay Rae, a gorgeous witch and proprietor of the Healing Hands store, to hold a séance to find out what’s troubling his wife’s ghost. Tiernay needs a coven to focus her powers, however, so her roguish brother, Greg, suggests that Anna Nolan and her two friends help ‒ or “the maiden, the mother, and the crone,” as he calls them. But with Halloween fast approaching and the séance unleashing a malicious evil in the small town of Crane, can Tiernay stop it before someone gets hurt, or even killed?
