Meet Me in Long Beach

I'll be at the Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend, and I'd be delighted to deliver pre-ordered, signed copies of Red Flags. (However, I can't carry a dozen books around with me all day to sell, so they have to be pre-ordered.)

It's just two easy steps to make this happen!

Step 1: Buy the book: 
  • Buy one on your own and meet me to get a signature (see times/locations below).
  • Pre-order, meet me, and I'll deliver it. To pre-order:
    • Email me with quantity and selection of books, and I'll send you info on how to pay
      • Paperback $16
      • Hardcover $27
Step 2: Meet me:
  • Friday, April 15, 11 a.m. in the paddock 
  • Saturday, April 16, 9 a.m. at Starbucks in the Renaissance Hotel
  • Saturday, April 16, 1 p.m. in the paddock
Paddock location: IMSA paddock (see blue arrow on map; against track fence on right at the bottom of the stairs)

For a different time/place or to request any other books, comment here, message me on FB or email me (

Scenes from Left Coast Crime

Last week was the annual, epic mystery convention we call Left Coast Crime. I came home with the same convention crud (cold/flu) as a bunch of other attendees, as well as a host of incredible memories. Only the memories will last!

Here are some of the highlights...

Hanging out with my wonderful Poisoned Pen Press editor, Annette Rogers.

Taking part in a great panel on strong women (though we agreed a) it's time it's just "women" and b) we'd like to see the "weak men" panel sometime)
(l to r: Francine Matthews, Allison Brennan, Mark Coggins, Deborah Crombie, and me)

Rocking killer shoes with Rochelle Staab

Treating our LCC banquet guests to goodies and tiaras
(with my co-host, Rochelle)

Sharing tiaras with a few other deserving folks 
(clockwise from top left: Annette Rogers, Ingrid Willis, Jenn McKinlay, Catriona McPherson, Rochelle, and me)

Moderating the closing panel, an interview with LCC's guests of honor (Ann Cleeves, Catriona McPherson, Gregg Hurwitz, and Chantelle Aimee Osman)

I can't wait for next year. See you all in Hawaii!
