Join us for another evening of crime! Crime fiction that is, read by our members: Gary Anderberg, Susan Breen, Ken Posthauer, Peter James Quirk, and Jeff Soloway. The evening will be hosted by MWA-NY Chapter President Laura K. Curtis. This event is free and open to the public.
Gary Anderberg is a recovering academic. In his day job he is the SVP of Claim Analytics for a large, multinational financial services company and a designer of cutting edge decision support systems, but by night he turns on his right brain to write New Adult mysteries. His latest novel is The Connoisseur of Chaos.
Susan Breen is the author of the Maggie Dove mystery series, published by Penguin Random House's Alibi digital imprint. Her first mystery story was published by Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and her second one is to be published Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. She teaches at Gotham Writers in New York City and lives in Irvington, N.Y., with her husband, two cockapoos, and two cats. Her three children are flourishing elsewhere.
After a lifetime of reading espionage and living through the Cold War, Ken Posthauer now writes historical and contemporary fictional espionage.
Peter James Quirk is an author, freelance writer, and outdoorsman who spends his winters skiing and snowboarding and his summers hiking, biking, and playing tennis. His novel Trail of Vengeance is a thriller with a strong ski theme. Many of his stories, however, cover World War II and its aftermath. His latest novel Fishermen of Kérity contains a long flashback to the Nazi occupation of Brittany in North-Western France.
Formerly an editor and writer for Frommer’s travel guides, Jeff Soloway is now a book editor in New York City. In 2014 he won the Robert L. Fish Memorial Award from the Mystery Writers of America for his short story, "The Wentworth Letter." His Travel Writer mystery series is published by Alibi, Random House's imprint for digital crime fiction. The second novel in the series, The Last Descent, which takes place in the Grand Canyon, just came out in November.
