Veranda Barnes & Noble, Concord
Address: 2025 Diamond Blvd Suite 125, Concord CA 94520

Dutifully and cheerfully answering the call from Mystery Writers of America (NoCal Chapter) I will be among the authors signing and chatting at the Grand Opening of the brand new and very shiny Barnes & Noble at The Veranda shopping center in Concord.

I'll be there from 6-8 PM on May 22nd, so do come by if you're in the area and pick up a copy of my debut crime novel, THE ANTIQUITIES HUNTER, starring the inimitable Gina "Tinkerbell" Miyoko, PI, described by Booklist as "a unique series lead, but she sweeps across the pages like an adrenalin-fueled soul sister of Janet Evanovich’s flamboyant characters..."

According to Publisher's Weekly, Gina's "rich backstory and family life adds unusual depth to a fun story. Readers will want to see a lot more of Gina.”

And the story? Reviewers say it's "a wild, breathless ride, a true pager turner. ... full of exciting and unexpected turns," and that it "breathes new life into the PI genre. Fast-paced, witty, and full of intrigue, it's a layered mystery with a deeply complicated and memorable main character in Gina Miyoko. Such a terrific ride!"  (My thanks to mystery writers John Copenhaver and William Boyle.)

What more can I say, except that I love writing Gina Miyoko and am thrilled that people seem to love reading about her, as well.

I hope to see you in Concord at the new Barnes & Noble!
