I'm coming to the Boston area in early June to do a few appearances with fellow debut novelists Tish Cohen and Patry Francis. Thatís right, three writers for the price of one Ė an especially good deal, since the price is free!
Tish wrote Town House, a hilarious and moving story of the neurotic son of a deceased rock star living in a crumbling Boston town house. Itís already being developed into a big deal Hollywood movie Ė go, Tish! Patry is a Massachusetts native, and her book The Liar's Diary is the thrilling, twisty tale of a "good family" with something darker below the surface. The praise just keeps heaping up: "engrossing" "deeply textured" "genuinely creepy" "jaw-dropping." Donít miss it!
