Here comes Saturday

Looking forward to my meet the author and book signing event in Mount Dora on Saturday, March 16 from 1 p.m. til 3 p.m. You’ll find me at a table outside Barrel of Books and Games (a browse-able independent book store with real physical books). I’m anticipating lots of fun speaking with people about what types of mysteries they like to read. I’ll also be signing copies of my mystery book, Death on Clare Island.

Star’s Story Begins

Clare Island Lighthouse

“That morning, the sky rose beyond the sea in a luminous ultramarine palette reminding me of Vermeer’s Woman in Blue Reading a Letter. Treading the grassy path from the Clare Island Lighthouse bed and breakfast down to the harbor, I pictured my mother when she received a letter, many years ago from Clare Island.”

Of course, when I was researching my first Star O’Brien mystery, I was captivated by the beauty and potential remoteness of the island. I just knew that Star’s story had to start here at the lighthouse, poised majestically above the vast Atlantic Ocean.

Barrel of Books and Games

Browsing a local bookstore is one of my favorite “get away for some me time” activities, especially if there’s a coffee shop nearby. So, I was thrilled to discover an independent book store, Barrel of Books and Games, in Mount Dora, Florida.

Now, as an indie author, I have an opportunity to host a sidewalk book event in conjunction with the bookstore owner! How exciting! Lots of preparation to complete but I’m looking forward to speaking with people, who might stop by, about Star O’Brien and Ireland.
