2017 Great Minnesota Get Together A.K.A. Minnesota State Fair

The fair set an attendance record this year: 1,997,320. Enjoyed speaking with so many people, and felt honored each time someone wanted their picture taken with me.


On August 29. Fairborne’s arm got stuck in the door of a mascot-eating mailbox. Saw his distress and rescued him. Catastrophe averted. We both heaved a sigh of relief. 😉

Murder on a Stick Is Available!

Murder on a Stick: The Third Pete Culnane Mystery, was released on August 6. The launch party was at Subtext: A Bookstore, located in St. Paul, on September 3. The turnout was FANTASTIC! It was followed by a signing at Once Upon A Crime, in Minneapolis, on September 6. One patron provided an excellent suggestion for the title of book four: Mistletoe and Murder. Now all I have to do is finish writing that book. Remaining optimistic, but not far along enough to have any idea of a target date.
