Today is the official “pub date” for Silent Murders, the day book stores–real and virtual–can start selling the book. I have a slew of book events coming up, mostly ones where I give a short talk on silent movies and answer questions. The first that is free and open to the public is the reading at Chop Suey Bookstore in Carytown, Richmond, at 6:00 Sept. 30.
I'm an Army brat who has lived in Virginia most of my adult life. I received my BA and MA in history from the College of William and Mary and taught American history and museum studies at Virginia Commonwealth University for thirteen years. I am the author of 200 magazine articles, most on history, travel, and business topics, fifteen nonfiction books, and historical mysteries.
To schedule book club visits (in person or via Skype) or lectures, contact me directly at email@example.com. I usually bring along objects and illustrations that make for a lively presentation and discussion.
