Thank you for supporting my presentation last Thursday at the beautifully renovated Mineral Point Public Library! It was a cold evening, but everyone who attended gave my husband Scott and me a warm, friendly welcome.
It was an honor to be in Mineral Point for a week to take part in a special writers' residency program, a lovely collaboration between the Council for Wisconsin Writers (CWW) and the Shake Rag Alley School of Arts & Crafts.
I was able to participate in the residency program because one of my novels, The Heirloom Murders, was awarded the CWW's Powers Prize for best fiction book of the year by a Wisconsin writer.
The Heirloom Murders is the second of my Wisconsin-based Chloe Ellefson Historic Sites mystery series. The fourth comes out this fall, and I started the fifth one while in Mineral Point! I found the historic town inspirational.
I invite you to discover more about my Chloe, American Girl and Civil War books by visiting me online at my website, Facebook, blog, Goodreads, LinkedIn, and YouTube pages.
Thank you again for coming to the program. I hope you had as much fun that evening as I did! I look forward to visiting Mineral Point again.
