Coming Attraction: Albert and Bowen

This Thursday, two fabulous mystery authors are stopping by Straight From Hel. I wanted to give you a heads-up so you could check out their websites and books, then come back armed with questions. They’re both authors of multiple series, both award-winning authors with best-selling books.

It’s going to be a Q&A, but I am not the one doing the questioning. The two of them are grilling each other. The two authors are Susan Wittig Albert and Rhys Bowen.

Susan writes the China Bayles mystery series, set in central Texas. Her latest, Wormwood, came out earlier this year to wonderful reviews. She also writes The Cottage Tales series, a truly unique series set in English Lake District during the Edwardian period. The protagonist of that series is Beatrix Potter. The next in the series, The Tale of Applebeck Orchard will be available in September.

Rhys writes the Constable Evans mysteries and the Molly Murphy Mysteries. Her newest series stars Lady Georgie and is set during the 1930s in England. The latest Lady Georgie is hot off the presses. It’s called Royal Flush and it just came out.

Rhys and Susan will be talking about researching for their books, why Americans are fascinated with the British and the Royals, female sleuths and even their own favorite writing places.

So come back on Thursday, armed with questions for them or even just a “hi.”

  1. This sounds great. I'm familiar with both authors. Susan was even kind enough to follow my FaceBook blog thing. I'm particularly interested in research and how they go about it. I'll be here.

  2. It's always great to hear from the pros, to learn their insights into the craft. I'm interested in the research as well. I like to do much research to inform my writing, to give it an authenticity. Sounds like it'll be a wonderful post.

  3. Wow....those are two great guests, Helen. I'll be back on Thursday for sure.
