Interested in an afternoon of spook-filled cozy mysteries? Join us in conversation with authors Nancy Cole Silverman and Ellen Byron.
Nancy spent a very successful career in radio before setting her sights on writing mystery fiction. Her Carol Childs mystery series, spanning five books to date, features single-mom Carol who works by day as a reporter for a Los Angeles radio station, and by night as a crime-solver. Nancy’s latest novel, The House on Hallowed Ground, is the first in her new Misty Dawn mystery series. Misty, a former Hollywood Psychic to the Stars, moves into an old craftsman house, haunted by its former owner, Hollywood set designer Wilson Thorne. When young actress Zoey Chamberlain seeks Misty’s help in investigating a supposedly haunted mansion, The Pink Palace, it’s not ghosts that Misty finds, but a dead body, and Zoey quickly becomes the lead suspect.
Ellen writes the USA Today bestselling Cajun Country Mysteries. The series’ fourth installment, Mardi Gras Murder, won the Agatha Award for Best Contemporary Novel for 2018. Fatal Cajun Festival, the latest addition to the Cajun Country series, follows Crozat Plantation B&B proprietor Maggie Crozat as she cheers on her friend Gaynell Bourgeois at the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. But when an entourage member of rival diva Tammy Barker is found to be murdered, the woman is hellbent to make Gaynell the number one suspect. Posing as a groupie, Maggie infiltrates Tammy’s band, hoping to clear her friend’s name.
