"Death in Shorts" Mystery Short Story Panel

This Saturday, June 20th, 2015
10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Thayer Memorial Library

Level Best Books will present a “Death in Shorts” mystery short story panel.  The panel will feature local authors, Janet Halpin, Ruth M. McCarty, and Dale T. Phillips, whose stories are among the twenty-nine published in Level Best Books’ twelfth annual anthology of crime fiction by New England authors, Best New England Crime Stories 2015: Rogue Wave. With Leslie Wheeler, Level Best contributing co-editor, moderating, panelists will discuss how they plot, construct, and populate the mystery short story from light-hearted to noir. 

            Copies of Rogue Wave will be available for signing and sales. 

About the Panelists:

Janet Halpin is a committed genre hopper, writing mystery, romance, sci-fi, and sometimes YA, but she draws the line at poetry. She and her family live in the Boston suburbs, where, as we all know, nothing is as it seems.

Lancaster resident, Ruth M. McCarty’s , mysteries appear in several Level Best Books anthologies and Over My Dead Body! magazine. She received honorable mentions in AHMM and for her flash fiction and won the 2009 Derringer award. She is a former editor at Level Best Books, a past president of Sisters in Crime/New England, a member of Mystery Writers of America and a founding member of the New England Crime Bake Committee.

Dale T. Phillips studied writing with Stephen King at the University of Maine, and has published over thirty short stories and four novels, three in the Zack Taylor series.  He’s appeared on stage, in televisions, and in an independent feature film. He competed on two nationally televised quiz shows, Jeopardy and Think Twice, and lost spectacularly.
