Clues Book Event

Here's a picture from the December '07 book signing/talk I gave at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale. It was a lot of fun and there were several local Sleuth members that attended. The staff at the Poisoned Pen was great, and I'd recommend this bookstore highly to anyone coming to Scottsdale, AZ. Their website:

Clues for Real Life Update

Nancy Fans:
I've relocated my blog at Blogspot, rather than at my website, as I was having file/archiving errors that couldn't be fixed easily, so bookmark this link:
2007 was quite a year for Nancy Drew! I stayed very busy between the Warner Brothers movie release and my book coming out.
My book came out last November and has been well received. I had a great time compiling it and Meredith Books did a great job illustrating it with images from classic book covers and internal illustrations. One oddity, is that you can find it in bookstores--Barnes and Noble, Borders, and the like--both online and in person. However, at the stores, it's being shelved in sections like "Self Help!" It's rather amusing, since this book is not a self help book. I suppose if you found yourself loitering in the self help section with a few issues in your life, this book might lighten your load a bit with its wit and humor and fun nostalgia:) It's actually a humor/nostalgia book, so the designation for the self help section is a bit odd in and of itself.
Last December, I had a book signing and gave a talk at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, AZ. It was a lot of fun and I hope to go back this spring sometime. I will be speaking at the Phoenix Library in March '08 for a Nancy Drew mystery event and will focus on the Clues book as well. This coming September 12th, I will be in Dearborn, Michigan for a series book event at the library involving their huge collection of children's series literature and the Nancy Drew display they will have. I am one of the presenters for opening night. Then in late September, the Sleuths' 8th annual convention will be taking place in the Lancaster, PA area for a Witch Tree Symbol theme--Sept. 30-Oct. 5, 2008.
