I recently joined Alex Dolan on his talk show program Thrill Seekers Radio to discuss my music, THE FALL, and more.
You can listen to or download the whole podcast here!
Thrill Seekers scours the globe for the rarest and most exotic specimens of thriller authors. Some are popular varieties, while some authors are rarely spotted. The makers of this podcast douse ourselves in the pheromones of thriller writers and wait for hours, sometimes days in the wild to catch these spectacular creatures and bring them to you.
Hosted by Alex Dolan, it airs every other Tuesday as part of the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network.
I’m excited to announce that I will be attending the Book Passage Mystery Writers Conference in Corte Madera, California! Held at one of my favorite bookstores, the conference will provide a great opportunity for mystery writing fans and authors to gain some insight into the craft from their favorite writers and the many accomplished faculty members attending this year.
I hope you can attend. I will be speaking at the Event Room on the first day of the conference, Thursday, July 28th, from 5pm to 6pm.
As always, I’m looking forward to attending the conference and hope to see you there!
You can register online for the conference here.

I want to remind you all that the Alamo Women’s Club 2nd Annual Authors’ Faire is coming up on March 23! The deadline for reservations is March 14, so if you haven’t yet reserved your spot, either:
I recently returned from my trip to Savannah, Georgia, where I was a speaker at the 2016 Savannah Book Festival! The Savannah Book Festival is one of the most magical events of its kind. The city of Savannah is just beautiful, with its public squares, horse-drawn carriages, Spanish moss hanging from old magnolias and oaks. And the food compares to the best anywhere — I particularly loved the shrimp & grits (not a common dish in California, but it should be) at The Public restaurant and the duck breast at Local 11ten.
You can read an article here from the Savannah Morning News profiling me for this event. (Some minor corrections: my last name is actually pronounced “less-kwah” (the opposite of more-kwah) and THE FALL came out in May of 2015.)
