Prose in the Park is an annual Ottawa writers’ event held in the park next to the Parkdale Market. I’ll be at the Capital Crime Writers table all day with five local authors with our books for purchase. Between 11:00 a.m. and noon, I’ll do a brief reading from Tumbled Graves after a short interview, and from 3:00 to 4:00, I’ll be part of the “Code of Conduct” panel with fellow crime writers: John Farrow, Ian Hamilton, Dietrich Kalteis and Peter Kirby. This promises to be a great day, so check out the schedule and plan to come by!
Last year’s panel – let’s hope for the same great weather this year!
As part of the Authors for Indies Day, I will be appearing at Books on Beechwood on Saturday, April 30 between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. A terrific sampling of local authors will be at the store all day long, sharing books that we read and recommend, and on hand to talk about our writing. Plan to stop by Books on Beechwood or another independent bookstore in your community to show your support.
I’m so thrilled to be part of the panel entitled Scene of the Crime at this spring’s Ottawa International Writers Fest. Linwood Barclay, Joy Fielding and John Lawton are also on the panel, which will be moderated by Barbara Fradkin. The date is Sunday, April 17 at 8:30 p.m. at Christ Church Cathedral on Sparks Street. You can find more information and order tickets at the Writers Fest website. I hope to see you there!
All are welcome to attend the Tumbled Graves launch at Whispers Pub, 249 Richmond Road, on Sunday, April 3 between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. Books on Beechwood will be on hand with copies for purchase.
I hope to see you there!
Tumbled Graves , 3rd in the Stonechild and Rouleau police procedural series is available for pre-order.
Brenda Chapman knows her way around a mystery. Tightly written and cleverly plotted, Tumbled Graves begins with the disappearance of a mother and child. The book drives toward the surprise ending with a fine storyteller at the wheel. I highly recommend the series. Chapman is an author to watch.
