Left Coast Writers®: Mystery Writers Panel (Corte Madera Store)

Monday, March 4, 2019 - 7:00pm

Please join Left Coast Writers® for a special panel featuring authors Penny Warner, and Nicola Trwst, as well as literary agent Laurie Fox, moderated by Left Coast Writers® founder Linda Watanabe McFerrin.

Penny Warner's Code Busters are excited for their class field trip to Angel Island, known as the Ellis Island of the West. One of Mika's ancestors passed through the island's immigration station in the early twentieth century, and Mika thinks he may have left behind some secret messages...plus a very special box. But as the Code Busters search for hints from the past, they get caught up in an even bigger secret. Can you crack the code? Test your brain with the Code Busters to see if you have the right stuff to be an ace detective.

In Nicola Trwst's San Rafael Sizzle, journalist Briana Kaleigh's ex has tracked her to Marin County, California hoping to rekindle their marriage, but Briana has set her sights on smoking hot sheriff's detective, Dusty Arkansas. When the body of a leading stem cell researcher is discovered beside a cooler of iced placentas, Briana is the first journalist on the scene, and she and Dusty team up to work the evidence until Briana's ex is arrested for the murder. Now, Briana must work against Dusty and the authorities to prove her ex is innocent, but the surrounding emotions and her ex's stubborn silence don't help. When a fire destroys the researcher's lab and all the lab employees disappear, finding the truth becomes even more crucial. A sinister killer is taking aim again and Briana could be his next target.

Laurie Fox joined the Linda Chester Literary Agency in 1989 and is currently a partner there.
