Reed Farrel Coleman: October 9

Mystery Readers NorCal welcomes Reed Farrel Coleman on Friday, October 9, for a literary salon at my home in the Berkeley (CA) hills. 7 p.m

RSVP for address and directions. Space is limited.

Reed Farrel Coleman, former Executive Vice President of Mystery Writers of America, was Brooklyn born and raised. He is the author of ten novels in three series published under his name and his pen name Tony Spinosa.

His sixth novel, The James Deans, won the Shamus, Barry, and Anthony Awards. The novel was further nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, and Gumshoe Awards. Reed is also a published poet, and for several years was a co-editor of the journal Poetry Bone.

He was the editor of the short story anthology Hard-boiled Brooklyn. His short stories and essays appear in Wall Street Noir, Mystery Readers Journal, Damn Near Dead, Brooklyn Noir 3, Expletive Deleted, These Guns for Hire, Crime Spree Magazine and several other publications. He lives with his wife and teenage children on New York's Long Island.

His latest novel Tower is a collaboration with Irish noir author Ken Bruen. I'm putting it on my top ten for the year! Read my review.

Join MRI October 9 for an evening with Reed Farrel Coleman. Guaranteed to be fun and enlightening.

Met Reed at the Denver LCC. Tried to convince him to go to Hawaii LCC last March with no success. So I'm definitely going to be there for his visit on Friday. He is very entertaining and I like his books.
