Have a book club? I love chatting with folks about my books, the writing process or anything else mystery and thriller related. If you have a book club, let me know. I would love to join for an evening and talk about Lies She Told (Named to Kirkus' Best Books of 2017) or The Widower's Wife (named to Kirkus' Best Books of 2016).
