At Bobby's News and Gifts on Sunday April 30th, 1-3 pm
Come to Bobby's News and Gifts in Boonton NJ on Sunday April 30th from 1-3 pm for a book reading and signing! While I've been part of several Mystery Writers of America panels this past year, this is the first individual appearance I'll be doing for The Ripper Gene since it won 2016 Silver Falchion literary awards for Best Horror Novel and for Best Serial Killer Mystery at the end of last year! I'm not quite finished with my next book, tentatively entitled The Boy in the Chapel... but I will be reading from it as well...that new novel is set right here in northern New Jersey so I hope everyone will enjoy that! The Ripper Gene will be available in hard-to-find, hard cover first editions at the bookstore that day, so I hope to see you all there!

Very excited to visit the Wyckoff Book Club tonight to discuss The Ripper Gene with members on March 6. After that I've been invited to the Mysteries in the Morning series at the Bridgewater Library in Bridgewater NJ onMarch 8, 2017 10-11:30 a.m. There I'll be discussing not only The Ripper Gene, but also new works in progress including two novels- one a biomedical thriller set in Manhattan and the other an FBI profiler mystery set in northern New Jersey- looking forward to all the events we have in March!
