THE PRICE YOU PAY on sale February 6th, 2024. Book tour begins!

Although my tour is still being put together, I do have a few events to share now.

The Midwest Mystery Conference in Chicago (November 11, 2023) is an intimate one-day event. If you’re new to crime fiction conferences, and if you’re within a few hours of downtown Chicago, the MMC is a good place to dip your toe in. It’s an affordable opportunity to meet some of your favorite authors and find new ones, too.

I’ll be at the Southwest Florida Reading Festival on March 2nd, 2024.  It’s my first time, and I’m very much looking forward to it.  Turns out I have a lot of Florida readers! If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello!

I’ve been invited back to the Tucson Festival of Books (TFoB) on March 9-10, 2024. This huge festival is one of my favorites, with top-notch authors of everything from crime fiction to cookbooks to children’s literature.  In the past, I’ve been on panels with C.J. Box and William Kent Krueger – this is the big time.  Plus, Tucson in March is spectacular.  See you there, I hope!
