I had a chance to visit with the owner of "Sweet Reads" bookstore, Lisa Deyo, in Austin on 3/3/17. I dropped off copies of my new book, "Chisago Creek," along with some of my earlier mystery books. Also got a chance to meet the Principle of Pacelli, Laura Marreel, and reminisce about Pacelli as well as what's been happening lately.

It's always fun to stop into "Sweet Reads," and meet interesting
people ( books too! ).
