Description

Join the Mystery Writers of America, New York Chapter, for another thrilling night of chilling crime fiction read by our talented members! Readers include:

P.D. Halt
PD Halt left her native Virginia for New York when she was twenty-one, where she joined the mad men of advertising. She wrote award-winning campaigns, including Nothing Beats a Great Pair of L’eggs, and shot commercials in Paris for Yves Saint Laurent. Interpublic noticed her, and she found herself living and working in artsy, trendy Düsseldorf, Germany. This led to life changing experiences and the plot for her debut thriller, When Death Imitates Art. Halt lives in New York City and is a member of Mystery Writers of America and International Thriller Writers.

Mary Jo Robertiello
I haunt cemeteries. Being a mystery writer, I’m in love with the unfathomable. What’s more unfathomable than death and how people meet it? I live in my hometown, New York City. I love its change of seasons, its architecture, its skyline, its buzz, its food, its ethnic, age, sexual orientation, capitalist, socialist mix. Should I go on? It’s all in my police procedural, The Lemrow Mystery. I attend a liberal church, am a member of a left wing political group, belong to a conservative social club and do part time work in a museum that was founded by a staunch capitalist. Go figure! Maybe having a socialist father and social climbing mother has something to do with it.

James Robertson
James D. Robertson was a contributing editor for two non-fiction works, DOC: PLATOON MEDIC, a Military Book Club selection by Daniel Evans Jr. (Pocket Books, 1992) and STEEL MY SOLDIERS’ HEARTS, a New York Times bestseller by the late Colonel David H. Hackworth (Ruggedland Books, 2002). Mr. Robertson served with the authors in Vietnam. James is a member of Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers and Long Island Writers’ Guild. FOR GOOD REASON is his debut novel. THE WOODSTOCK MURDERS, a thriller, will be forthcoming from Black Opal Books in 2019. Mr. Robertson lives with his wife on Long Island where he is working on his third novel.

A.J. Sidransky
Author A.J. Sidransky is a longtime resident of Washington Heights, New York. He travels frequently to the Dominican Republic. He has written several articles and short stories. His debut novel, Forgiving Maximo Rothman, was selected as a finalist for the Outstanding Debut Novel by National Jewish Book Awards.

His second novel, Stealing A Summer's Afternoon, was selected as a finalist for Best Second Novel by the Indie Book Awards.

Victoria Weisfeld

After college, Victoria's do-gooder genes took over and she spent a lot of years helping nonprofit organizations tell their stories. She met amazing people, some with 2.9 strikes against them, many with extraordinary achievements. They enrich her memory and warm her heart. The work took her all over the country, to every kind of community, each one with something important to say.

Wanderlust and obsessive monitoring of her frequent flyer miles has led Victoria to 22 other countries too—from Bulgaria to Denmark, from Costa Rica to Morocco. Those experiences inspired creation of fictional travel writer, Eugenia Clarke. Genie is an acute observer and insatiably curious, traits that contribute to her popularity but get her into trouble every time!
