Diane (Ali Brandon) Stuckart and Patrick Kendrick

Greenacres Library had an authors get together with two of our local authors.  The presentation was tremendous. There was a lot of interesting stories, tips and answered questions.

Diane Stuckart writes Leonardo da Vinci mysteries. The Queen's Gambit is the one I purchased.  The story takes place in 1483, Milan, province of Lombardy.  It looks like a very interesting time reading. Her other book is a Black Cat Bookshop Mystery, Words With Fiends (book 4) by her pseudonym Ali Brandon. This looks like  a fun book to read.

Patrick Kendrick is a former fire fighter, paramedic, journalist and consultant to different police type agencies.  His past includes intensely interviewing a serial killer, writing the book, and not publishing it. His book tend to be killer oriented (we are inside the killers head). Interesting view point if you want to go in that direction. His first book is Papa's Problem and he just came out with the second Extended Family.  Tales of Patrick Kindrick

They had taken the time to write their version (cosy book vs. dark book) a short mystery based on the game CLUE.  Her point of view vs his point of view were totally different and shows the differences between the genres.  Quite a good friendship between the two. They kept us in stitches and answered all questions.  It was a fun time at the Library.

Pick up their books and find out what their writing is about. I have included URLs for you to find them. Enjoy!
