Left Coast Crime 2016

Join me and a cast of hundreds at this year’s Left Coast Crime in gorgeous Phoenix, Arizona, February 25-28, and who doesn’t want to get out of the snow and into the sun in February!


Two Things You Shouldn’t Miss...


Thursday @ 5:30pm
February 25, 2016

Desert Sleuths and Tucson Sisters in Crime are cohosting happy hour, under the slightly alarming title of A Million Ways to Die in the Desert.

Come on down, talk shop with your SinC sisters and brothers and hang out with authors and fans.

There will be drinks, snacks and games, all to get you in the mood for the opening ceremony, which follows.


Saturday @ 7:30am
February 27, 2016

Poisoned Pen Press is hosting a Discover Mystery Breakfast, where you get to sit at a table with a Poisoned Pen Press author and go home with one of our books.

Authors include Mary Anna EvansPriscilla RoyalVicki DelaneyBetty WebbJeff Siger, and me, among others.

(Jeff is such a great raconteur that I'd rather we all sat at his table, but oh well.)


Plus the usual great LCC programming, and the hotel is an easy cab ride from Durant's, where, oh my god, you will eat one of the best steaks you ever ate in your life, with a decor I call Early Rat Pack. What is not to love. Go.


In other news...

See me in performance at the Poisoned Pen on December 5th, talking about the Silk and Song trilogy, which is now gloriously complete. Ebook buy links below.

Signed trade paperbacks available from the Poisoned Pen. I'll be signing more at Left Coast Crime.


Not forgetting Left Coast Crime 2017...

...where I (modest cough) and Colin Cotterill (Whoop! Love his books!) will be guests of honor. Faye and Jonathon Kellerman will be lifetime achievement recipients, Laurie King will be toastmistress, and we will all be haunted by the ghost of Earl Derr BiggersRegister now! Because, you know, “Waiting for tomorrow waste of today.”


Come on, Dana. What about Kate 21?

I'm hard at work on Kate21, at present tentatively titled Less than a Treason. No, no pub date yet. Go back and reread Liam, or Star, or the Coastie books to kill some time.

What else?

I'm reading the second of many Cleopatra biographies in preparation for my new series, set in Alexandria during Cleopatra's 22-year reign. Something about finishing Silk and Song made me think I can write historical fiction, I guess.
