About this Event

Spend an evening hearing haunting stories from mystery author Catriona McPherson and her books, "Strangers at the Gate" and "Scots on the Rocks."

STRANGERS AT THE GATE is a story that delves into the lives of two characters who begin to have doubts about the small town of Simmerton they just moved to. With strange neighbors and a haunting setting, Catriona McPherson once again weaves a page-turning tale of suspense.

A laugh-aloud mystery, SCOTS ON THE ROCKS, is a hilarious whodunit on a par with the early Janet Evanovich.

Born and raised in Edinburgh, Catriona McPherson left Edinburgh University with a PhD in Linguistics and worked in academia, as well as banking and public libraries, before taking up full-time writing in 2001. For the last ten years she has lived in Northern California with a black cat and a scientist. In 2020 she has been shortlisted for a third Mary Higgins Clark Award, for Strangers at the Gate, and won a Left Coast Crime 2020 Lefty Award for the Best Humorous Mystery for Scot and Soda.

This program is hosted by the Anaheim Public Library Foundation (Tax ID #33-0672558). The Library Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing Anaheim Public Library's rich resources and diverse programs for generations to come. Along with sponsoring author visits throughout the year, the Foundation hosts the popular Mystery Authors Luncheon and silent auction to raise funds that support the eBook and audiobook collection, youth programs, and so much more. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 Luncheon was cancelled. We've pivoted during this time to provide fundraising alternatives, such as the virtual author visit with Catriona McPherson. Each ticket purchased will earn entries into the opportunity drawing for a variety of gift cards.

Purchase McPherson's books on Amazon or visit Mystery Ink (Huntington Beach, CA).
