AAUW presents a panel of mystery writers. There will be a buffet of delectable desserts. The donation goes to support our Legal Advocacy Fund that combats sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace. The authors are:
Lisa Brackmann has worked as an executive at a major motion picture studio, as an issues researcher in a presidential campaign, and was the singer/songwriter/bassist in a L.A. rock band. Her debut novel, "Rock Paper Tiger," is set on the fringes of the Chinese art world. It has made several "Best of 2010" lists.
Heather Haven has written short stories, novels, comedy acts, plays, television treatments, ad copy, commercials and even ghost wrote a book. Her three books in the Alvarez Murder Mystery Series have received great reviews and several awards. Her more recent series is Persephone Cole, A Holiday Mystery Series.
Diana Orgain has acted professionally in many theater roles and national commercials. She wrote several plays which were produced at San Francisco State University, where she earned her B.A. and M.F.A. in Creative Writing. The Maternal Instincts Mystery Series was inspired by the transformational experience that motherhood brings.
Robin Burcell, an FBI trained forensic artist, has worked as a police officer, detective and hostage negotiator. She decided to put her nearly three decades of law enforcement experience to good use in nine novels. "The Black List," is her latest international thriller. The first in the series received a starred review from Library Journal.
Following the panel discussion the authors will have books available for purchase while we visit with them. Visit their websites for more in depth information about each of them.
