On November 3, a panel of exceptional authors joined us for a panel discussion. Moderator and author Dennis Royer asked thought-provoking questions of the panelists.
Left to Right: Moderator/Author Dennis Royer, Authors Eliot Pattison, Sara Cain, Eileen Haavik McIntire and David Reichenbaugh joined us for a review of their latest books and some laughs.
Dennis is the author of the conventional mystery series that takes place in Perry County, Pennsylvania. Their pace and action are between cozy and thriller. Earthburst is post-apocalyptic speculative fiction. The Story of Sing series is teen fiction.
Eliot Pattison is described as “a writer of faraway mysteries.” His Inspector Shan series has been translated into over twenty languages around the world. Pattison’s longtime interest in another “faraway” place, the 18th century American wilderness and its woodland Indians–led to the launch of his Bone Rattler series, which quickly won critical acclaim for its poignant presentation of Scottish outcasts and Indians during the upheaval of the French and Indian War.
Sarah Cain wrote her first story when she was four and has been at it ever since. She has worked as a copywriter, speechwriter, and a scriptwriter. Now she has moved on to flash fiction and two Danny Ryan thrillers, The Eighth Circle and One by One.
Eileen Haavik McIntire • Eileen, author of the 90s Club mystery series, knows one thing for sure. The Nancy Drew she loved reading about as a child would still be piling up clues like tricks in a bridge game at age 90. Nancy Drew inspired the 90s Club series where Nancy Dickenson and her 90s Club cronies at Whisperwood Retirement Village are still on the job, solving mysteries and saving lives—even their own. Her cozies include The Secret of the Old Clock and The Whispering Statue.
David Reichenbaugh is new to writing and his first book is non-fiction - In Pursuit: The Hunt for the Beltway Snipers. His career started as a road Trooper and continued on as a criminal investigator, undercover narcotics investigator, major violators supervisor, homicide and high profile case investigator, and assisted in the development of the intelligence unit of the MSP post 9/11. David's experience and passion for law enforcement and protecting the citizens, along with his command attributes, led him and enabled him to be the on scene commander during the capture of the beltway snipers.
People lined up to have their books signed and chat one-on-one with the authors.
A big shout out to Barbara Fellencer for taking the photographs.
