A discussion featuring Patricia King (aka Annamaria Alfieri), Kelly Garrett and Triss Stein
Annamaria Alfieri is author of three historical mysteries set in South America. Of the first of her Africa series, Strange Gods, placed in British East Africa, 1911, the Richmond Times-Dispatch said “the flair of Isak Dinesen and Beryl Markham, the cunning of Agatha Christie and Elspeth Huxley." The Idol of Mombasa joined the series in 2016. Alfieri, along with Michael Stanley, edited the anthology Sunshine Noir, which Peter James called “a gem—a whole new movement,” in crime fiction. She is a past president of the New York Chapter of Mystery Writers of America and serves on the board of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.
Kellye Garrett spent 8 years working in Hollywood, including a stint writing for the CBS drama Cold Case. People were always surprised to learn what she did for a living—probably because she seemed way too happy to be brainstorming ways to murder people. A former magazine editor, Kellye holds a B.S. in magazine writing from Florida A&M and an MFA in screenwriting from USC’s famed film school. Having moved back to her native New Jersey, she spends her mornings commuting to Manhattan for her job at a leading media company—while still happily brainstorming ways to commit murder. Her first novel, Hollywood Homicide, will be released by Midnight Ink on August 8, 2017. It’s the first book in the Detective by Day mystery series. Please visit KellyeGarrett.com to learn more.
Triss Stein is a small–town girl from New York farm country who has spent most of her adult life in Brooklyn. She writes mysteries about different Brooklyn neighborhoods a and their unique histories, in her ever-fascinating, ever-changing, ever-challenging adopted home. In the new book, Brooklyn Wars, her heroine, Erica Donato, is researching the proud history and slow death of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, when crime gets in the way.
