It’s reunion time! Catch up with the mystery authors from our VERY FIRST author panel. Enjoy a panel discussion with Cori Arnold, Steve Liskow, Chuck Miceli, and Carole Shmurak,

Cori Lynn Arnold, a true jack-of-all-trades hails from the icy landscapes of North Pole, Alaska. From hotel housekeeper to radio disc jockey, and from high school algebra teacher to ethical hacker, her journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. Now, as an electronic resources librarian in Maryland, she continues to weave her diverse experiences into her work.

Steve Liskow is an award-winning mystery writer and acclaimed workshop facilitator. Several of Steve’s novels take place in the Greater Hartford area and focus on issues including teen trafficking on the Berlin Turnpike, a shooting at a public school and stalking at roller derby. The Kids Are All Right, the fourth in his series about Hartford PI Zach Barnes, was a finalist for the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America. His other series, featuring PI and wannabe rock and roll guitar player Chris “Woody” Guthrie, is set in Detroit. Learn more at
