Live from Naples

I had a chance to enjoy the sunshine of Naples, Florida, this weekend, when I visited the Barnes & Noble store for an event on Saturday evening. Several scenes in my new thriller ALTER EGO are set right down in Naples. And of course, that’s where my Florida detective Cab Bolton lives.

Did you miss the event? Well, you can still be part of it! We did the event as a live radio show with Authors on the Air host Pam Stack. So you can listen to the entire event at the link below. It includes my reading Chapter 1 of ALTER EGO…!

TRUE STORY: The Stowaway

Did you dream as a kid of running away on a grand adventure? Then this week’s TRUE STORY is for you.

Join me Monday 2/5 at 8:30pm ET as I interview Laurie Gwen Shapiro about her new book THE STOWAWAY.

THE STOWAWAY begins in New York City in 1928 on the shore of the Hudson River. A Polish teenager named Billy Gawronski dives into the water and swims to the ship that will lead Commander Richard Byrd’s upcoming expedition to Antarctica. It’s an adventure that has captivated the world, with poor and rich alike clamoring for a place in history.

Billy’s goal? To sneak aboard and hide away until the ship is on its way.

Billy’s adventure — and Byrd’s expedition — take place in the shadow of boom times that are about to go bust. Laurie Gwen Shapiro captures the spirit of New York City, the spirit of the frozen continent, and the spirit of adventure driving everyone in Byrd’s party.

Invite Me to Your Book Club

I’ve been telling readers at all my tour events that MARATHON was written for book club discussions.

It’s a book designed to get people talking to each other.  It’s filled with characters making good and bad choices — and with characters you may love or hate at different points throughout the book.  Agree or disagree, you will want to share your thoughts with your friends about how this book reflects today’s society.

I’ve added book club discussion questions to the MARATHON page on my web site to help guide your meeting.

And why not ask me to be a part of it?  I feel so strongly about this book that I’m asking book clubs around the country to put this book on their list — and then invite me to join the discussion by FaceTime, Skype, or phone.  You can reach me via the Contact page on the website.  Let’s talk!

 

MARATHON Book Tour

The book tour for MARATHON is set!

Join me in May at events in Duluth, the Twin Cities, St. Louis, Denver, Phoenix, Houston, and Vero Beach. I’ll be talking about the “ripped from the headlines” themes in MARATHON, reading from the book, answering all your questions — and, of course, signing copies for you.

If I’m coming to your area, I hope you’ll stop by and meet me.
