Finding Your Side Hustle with Debra Bokur
February 13, 2021 from 9:00 to 10:30 AM MST

While continuing her Dark Paradise Mysteries series—and introducing a new cozy magical mystery series set in (you guessed it) an old New England inn—Debra will also be hosting retreats and weekends featuring visiting authors, artists and other fascinating folk.

Presenter Becky Clark published her first book in 2001 and has been honing her writing process ever since. She has developed many tricks and tips to speed up her writing because the key to a professional writing career is to consistently produce books. She is the seventh of eight kids, which explains both her insatiable need for attention and her atrocious table manners. She likes to read funny books so it felt natural to write them, too. She surrounds herself with quirky people and pets who end up as characters in her books. Readers say her books are “fast and thoroughly entertaining” with “witty humor and tight writing” and “humor laced with engaging characters” so you should “grab a cocktail and enjoy the ride.” She writes the Lazy Low Cal cookbooks, the Dunne Diehl novels, the Mystery Writer’s Mysteries, and the upcoming Crossword Puzzle Mysteries.
Join multiple-award-winning authors Jennifer Kincheloe and Barbara Nickless for cake, surprising silent films, a cool dog slide show, and an appearance by Nate the amazing therapy dog.
They will be reading from their new books THE BODY IN GRIFFITH PARK and AMBUSH.
Come out and join the fun!
