Gala Mystery Night 2015
For the fourth year, the biggest and best mystery bookstore in New
England, the New
England Mobile Bookfair held a Gala Mystery Night, with top-name
mystery authors, many of them NY Time best-sellers.
Lots of my fellow Sisters in Crime were signing as well.
Thanks to owner Tom Lyons and the hard-working staff who made the night glorious and fun!
Adn who do I see first, but fellow author and great guy T. Stephens, already making a new friend of Gayle Lynds.
