See You at the Library

Lots of library events coming up in the next week!

This Saturday, I’m at the library in Osceola WI at 1:00 pm.

On Sunday, I’m down in Waukee, IA at the Lutheran Church of Hope at 2:00 pm, where my intense and topical thriller MARATHON is this year’s selection for the Dallas County Reads program.

And next Thursday, I’ll be at the North Mankato Taylor library at 6:00 pm.

At all three events, I’ll share fun stories from the last 15 years in the publishing business!  I’ll take all of your questions…and I’ll give sneak previews of my 2020 releases, including the stand-alone Minnesota thriller THIEF RIVER FALLS and the next novel in the Duluth-based Jonathan Stride series, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND. Oh — and I’ll also talk about being chosen to take over Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series, with my first Bourne novel THE BOURNE CONSPIRACY due out in the summer of 2020.

My books will be available for sale and signing (remember, the holidays aren’t far away!).

June 20: New Audiobook

Audiobook fans, mark your calendars! My all-new, full-length novel arrives on June 20 as an Audible Original. AND it will be the Audible Daily Deal on launch day!

Coming in 2020: The Bourne Conspiracy

So…I have a little bit of news. Yes, Marcia and I have been dying to share this secret for months, and now we finally can. Putnam Books and the Robert Ludlum estate have hired ME to take over Ludlum’s famous Jason Bourne character.

Look for my new Bourne thriller THE BOURNE CONSPIRACY in 2020…!

This is truly a dream assignment, maybe the premiere opportunity in the thriller world. And on a personal level, it’s such a special honor. I’ve been a Robert Ludlum fan since I was a teenager, so having the opportunity to continue his legacy is one of the most amazing things to happen to me in my publishing career.
