Murder and Mayhem in Milwaukee THIS WEEKEND

Home-e1442245020819

Do you live in or around or even close to Milwaukee? Then you ought to come to Murder and Mayhem in Milwaukee this weekend. I will be there!

This is my first time at the conference—and I’m thrilled to be one of the featured authors. Look at this lineup! As a debut author, I feel very lucky. Like I snuck into a party I’m technically not cool enough for.

You can visit the Mayhem website to get all the details, including times and locations. My panel is at 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, and all the panels are packed with awesome, fun people.

The event includes an auction to raise money for Erin Mitchell, who has a heart condition and is facing some some very expensive procedures to correct it. Given my daughter’s heart issues, this is a cause that’s close to me.

You can see all the items being auctioned off here. I’m donating a character name in the third Ash McKenna novel, South Village, as well as a book from my own collection—Assassin of Secrets by QR Markham. This book was discovered to be plagiarized, and recalled by the publisher. I have a copy that’s signed by the author.

There’ll be some bidding by proxy, but if that doesn’t work out or you can’t make the event, you can also donate to Erin right here, and I would encourage you to do so.

She’s a swell lady and this is a twisted country, that someone could be sick and then be told they can’t be helped unless they come forward with an unreasonable amount of money.

Sometimes it’s up to us.
