As part of Mystery Writers of America, I was one of eight authors doing readings for Noir at the Bar for the Bay Area Book Festival, at the Cornerstone Brewhouse in Berkeley over the weekend. I actually followed Walter Mosley, author of the fabulous Easy Rawlins Series. He read from the first of the series, Devil in a Blue Dress. I followed with a reading from The CEO Came DOA . How cool is that? I want that in my epitaph and on my tombstone!
The Culinary Art of Murder, Book 6 of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, will become a reality in September of 2017!
Lee’s Uncle Tío is smitten with the lady guest chef at a Silicon Valley culinary art institute. When the lady is arrested for two murders, a fellow chef and the dishwasher, Lee agrees to help find the real killer. But undercover work at the institute proves to be more dangerous than whipping up a chocolate soufflé. If it turns out to be the ambitious southern belle chef, will Tío ever forgive Lee for sending his new lady love to jail?
