The Tucson Festival of Books is this weekend (March 12-13, 2022 on the campus of the University of Arizona). It's a great opportunity for readers to meet many authors! Unfortunately, due to COVID, I will not be present, but my fliers and bookmarks will be at Tucson Sisters in Crime booth (#427) and the Arizona Authors Association booth inside (#223).
If you aren't able to attend, look into book events in your area! I would love to see readers, listeners, authors, and organizations support local libraries, even those in hospitals and at facilities like the Veterans Administration...weather, fire, and war have caused many libraries to need our help...contact them to learn how you can support them!
A NEW INTERVIEW, January 2021. I received a lovely present for my 71st birthday...the following is a link to an interview about my writing and Murders of Conveyance!
January 17-February 20, 2021
Murders of Conveyance eBook edition Just $ .99!
Set in the lush environs of Hawai`i, the award-winning Natalie Seachrist Hawaiian Mysteries offer puzzling deaths, snippets of pan-Pacific history, and aspects of multicultural Island life. Prescient visions drive the crime solving of Natalie and her companions: Her twin Nathan, a psychologist; Miss Una, Natalie’s silent but fleet-footed tortoise shell feline companion; private investigator Keoni Hewitt, and his former partner Lieutenant John Dias of the Honolulu Police Department. While readers do not have to read the stories in sequence, I offer a layering of unresolved details and sub-themes and mini-mysteries that are unveiled through the series.
In this time of prolonged quarantine and stay-cations, many people are turning to eBooks for entertainment. For a taste of a mystery series featuring a female sleuth, haunting visions, a curious cat, Pan-Pacific history, Island food and multiculturalism, click below...

The highly anticipated TUCSON FESTIVAL OF BOOKS CANCELLED.
Tucson is now experiencing the chilling effects of the coronavirus. It is good that this year's event was cancelled. I hope that today's conditions will confirm that we should all follow safe practices for our mutual survival! May all be safe, and remember that although the young may be relatively safe, they can carry and spread this disease to others who may be more susceptible. Aloha until we can meet again, Jeanne
Thank you to those who dropped in to chat...and see Natalie's latest adventure...Murders of Conveyance.
It was lovely to visit with previous and potential readers of the Natalie Seachrist Hawaiian Mystery Series!
After an absence of twenty years, I visited my hometown of Portland, Oregon. It was amazing to explore the many things that had changed...and those that remained the same! The City of Roses is noted for Douglas fir trees and I can report that those planted in my youth are now huge!
I dropped in at the fiftieth reunion of my 1968 graduating class of Woodrow Wilson High School. As may be expected, I did not recognize anyone, but was delighted to share stories and chocolate covered macadamia nut candy at the gathering. The following week, I had the opportunity to share an overview of my work as an author and give an assignment to a couple of classes of creative writing students at Wilson High. Sadly the door to the stage I had loved so much was locked, but I was delighted to see that a small performance stage had been erected in the drama room.
Most gratifying was the long overdue meeting with my friend and Editor Viki Gillespie! She has smoothed out so many aspects of Natalie's adventures in murder and mayhem and it was wonderful to have her join me in addressing a joint meeting of the American Association of University Women mystery book clubs in the Portland area.
Viki Gillespie, friend & editor, joins me in addressing American Association of University Women.
If you're a writer, artist, or other creative professional, don't forget to
make your tablescape something visitors will remember fondly!
