Christine Finlayson was one of the featured debut authors at Left Coast Crime in Monterey. She got to hobnob with some famous mystery authors (including Sue Grafton, Louise Penny, Marcia Muller, and Jacqueline Winspear), give a 50-second-or-less pitch for “Tip of a Bone” at the New Authors Breakfast, and appear on a panel called Day at the Beach: Murder at the Seashore. Christine’s favorite part of the conference was connecting with other writers and mystery fans—plus watching the seals, sea lions, and otters in Monterey Bay.
Christine Finlayson will read selections from her new Oregon coast mystery, “Tip of a Bone,” as part of Another Read Through’s Local Author Series. She’ll share how nature inspired her to write this story–and a bomb scare convinced her to finish it. She will present a mix of slide show, discussion and short excerpts from her book.
7 p.m., Tues., Feb. 11 @ Another Read Through . New store location: 3932 N Mississippi
She will also be reading at Rain or Shine Coffee House at 6:30 p.m. Thurs., Feb. 27.
