Robin Burcell, Nancy J. Cohen, Deborah Sharp and Elaine Viets will discuss their latest and greatest works at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 14 in the W. T. Bland Public Library.
The Kill Order
Robin Burcell spent nearly three decades working in law enforcement as a police officer, hostage negotiator and a detective. Burcell is the award-winning author of ten novels to date. Her new series is about an FBI forensic artist and agent. The first, Face Of A Killer, received a starred review from Library Journal, and was followed by The Bone Chamber, The Dark Hour, The Black List, and the upcoming The Kill Order. She is currently working on the sixth in the series.
Nancy J. Cohen
Nancy is an award-winning author who writes both romance and mysteries. Her humorous Bad Hair Day mystery series features hairdresser Marla Shore, who solves crimes with wit and style under the sultry Florida sun. Several of these titles have made the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association bestseller list. Shear Murder is the tenth and most recent book in this series. Her romance titles have won the HOLT Medallion award and Best Book in Romantic SciFi/Fantasy at The Romance Reviews.
Mama Gets Trashed
Deborah Sharp was a reporter for USA Today for nearly two decades. Given all the stories she wrote about killer sharks, rampaging alligators, and human evil-doers, it's a wonder she leaves her house. She traded the sad stories of the news business for the funny ''Mace Bauer Mystery'' series, set in a sweet-tea-and-barbecue slice of her native Florida. The latest, Book 5, is Mama Gets Trashed. Foul play and fetish gear in Himmarshee? Mama's blushing pinker than her favorite sweet wine! Deborah's Florida mysteries are funny, with a soft Southern edge: Think Carl Hiaasen on estrogen.
Elaine Viets writes two national bestselling mystery series. Her Dead-End Job series is a satiric look at a serious subject – the minimum-wage world. Publishers Weekly called her hardcover debut “wry social commentary.” The critically acclaimed Board Stiff is the twelfth Dead-End Job novel. Elaine has won multiple awards including the prestigious Agatha, Anthony and Lefty Awards.
