IN THE LIBRARY … You’ve heard that the butler did it, with a candlestick, in the library. Join mystery authors who have written mysteries set in a library or have major scenes in a library.

Award-winning and bestselling author J.C. Kenney grew up in a household filled with books by legends like Agatha Christie and Lilian Jackson Braun so it was no surprise when he found himself writing mystery stories. When he’s not writing, you can find him following IndyCar racing or listening to music. He lives in Indianapolis with his wife, two children, and a cat who is the inspiration for Ursula in the Allie Cobb Mysteries.

Con Lehane is a mystery writer, living in Washington, DC. Murder Off the Page, published is the third entry in the 42nd Street Library series, featuring Raymond Ambler, curator of the 42nd Street Library’s (fictional) crime fiction collection and consulting detective (of sorts). Lehane has also published three books featuring New York City bartender Brian McNulty and published stories in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.  Over the years, Con has been a college professor, union organizer, labor journalist, and has tended bar at two-dozen or so drinking establishments.

Colleen J. Shogan has been reading mysteries since the age of six. A political scientist by training, Colleen has taught American politics at numerous universities. She previously worked on Capitol Hill as a legislative staffer in the United States Senate and as a senior executive at the Library of Congress. Currently, she's the Senior Vice President at the White House Historical Association. Colleen lives in Arlington, Virginia with her husband Rob and their beagle mutt Conan. She is a member of Sisters in Crime. "Stabbing in the Senate" was awarded the Next Generation Indie prize for Best Mystery in 2016. "Homicide in the House" was a 2017 finalist for the RONE Award for Best Mystery. “Calamity at the Continental Club” was a 2018 finalist in the “best cozy mystery” at Killer Nashville.

Lane Stone lives in Alexandria, Virginia and Lewes, Delaware.  She writes the Tiara Investigations Mysteries and the Pet Palace Mysteries. When not writing she’s enjoying characteristic baby boomer pursuits:  traveling and volunteering for good causes, like the Delaware River & Bay Lighthouse Foundation and AAUW. She has a post-graduate certificate in Antiquities Theft and Art Crime.

A zoom account is not required to join, but a microphone is. Most mobile devices have microphones installed. If you're using a desk top, most webcams also have microphones built in.  You will need to register for this class in order to get the meeting link.
