Event description

Description

Six readers are invited to spend Happy Hour talking mystery and murder with authors Leslie, Marla, and Ellen. The first round is on us! Meet at Hilton Hawaiian Village’s Tropics Bar & Grill. We’ll either imbibe there or saunter over to another excellent location. As an added bonus, Marla Cooper will bring her ukulele for a short serenade accompanied by chanteuse Leslie Karst.



Ellen Byron
Ellen’s debut novel, Plantation Shudders, nominated for Agatha, Lefty, and Daphne awards, made the USA Today Bestseller list. Body on the Bayou, the second book in her Cajun Country Mystery Series, is nominated for a 2016 Best Humorous Mystery Lefty, as well as an Agatha Award for Best Contemporary Novel. She’s written over 200 national magazine articles; published plays include the award-winning Graceland; TV credits include Wings, Just Shoot Me, The Fairly OddParents, and pilots. She’s heard things in comedy writing rooms that she can never repeat in mixed company – unless you buy her a drink.

Marla Cooper
Marla Cooper is the author of Terror in Taffeta, a Lefty nominee for Best First Mystery Novel and book one in the Kelsey McKenna Destination Wedding Mysteries. Her second book, Dying on the Vine, is set in the California wine country and comes out April 4, 2017. As a freelance writer, Marla has written all sorts of things, from advertising copy to travel guidebooks to the occasional haiku, and it was while ghostwriting a guide to destination weddings that she found inspiration for her series. Originally hailing from Texas, Marla lives in Oakland, California, with her husband and her polydactyl tuxedo cat.

Leslie Karst
The daughter of a law professor and a potter, Leslie Karst learned early, during family dinner conversations, the value of both careful analysis and the arts — ideal ingredients for a mystery story. She now writes the Sally Solari Mysteries (Dying for a Taste, A Measure of Murder), a culinary cozy series set in Santa Cruz, California. An ex-lawyer like her sleuth, Leslie also has degrees in English literature and the culinary arts. Her blog is called Custard and Clues.
