EVENTS

I travel all over Minnesota participating in Twin Cities Sisters in Crime panels, visiting bookstores, book clubs, festivals, and libraries. I love visiting new towns, meeting other Minnesota authors and mystery fans! I try to keep this page up-to-date with all upcoming events, and I will add events as I book them.  I hope you’ll stop by and say hi! Did I mention I love to be invited to book clubs?
