First Responders and PTSD: March 2, San Francisco

Free to the Public. Sponsored by Mystery Writers of America, NorCal Chapter:


DEAD IN SEAT 4-A: Guest post by M. Glenda Rosen

M. Glenda Rosen:
“Dead In Seat 4-A,” Book Two The Senior Sleuth Mysteries 
“Thanks to my father, writing mysteries is in my DNA! My father was a gangster. Really!” 

Like Nick and Nora Charles from The Thin Man series, Dick and Dora Zimmerman from The Senior Sleuths, solve crimes, especially murders. Along with Zero the Bookie (fashioned after my father) and a fascinating cast of other characters (such as Frankie Socks fresh out of the Witness Protection Program), the Zimmerman’s ignore being told to stay away!

As the story begins, the Las Vegas Sheriff is not happy to have Dick and Dora back in his town, especially since they had arrived on a plane with a dead body. Zero had brought along Cloud, a woman he recently met on an online gambling site. Dora soon discovers what she’s really after.

In Book 2, Dead In Seat 4-A, readers are swept along with Dick and his friends in their frantic pursuit of his wife, Dora, who has been kidnapped along with Cloud, and taken to The Mob Museum. Can anyone save them from the bad guys?

The story includes a poisoned flask, a mysterious key and enough dangerous characters to keep the reader guessing who is really behind the murders. The action takes place in casinos, bars, the condo complex where Dick and Dora live, the airport, the famous Vegas Strip (the scene of car chases), the underbelly of Las Vegas and, in The Mob Museum.

As author of two mystery series I now do talks about growing up as “the gangster’s daughter.” I’ve also published numerous articles including ones in, Mystery Scene Magazine, Sisters In Crime Newsletters, and various mystery blogs. I’m author of “The Woman’s Business Therapist,” and the award-winning “My Memoir Workbook, “ and a member of Sisters in Crime, Board Member, Woman’s National Book Association, Central Coast Writer’s, Public Safety Writer’s Association and The Mob Museum.

Published in 2018 it received honorable mention, Public Safety Writer’s Association, 2018, and Las Vegas Writers Festival, 2018. Book Three: Dead In THAT Beach House, is to be published in 2020.
