This Thursday, August 1st, Rocky Neck Gallery is honored to have writer Susan Oleksiw at the gallery for the second Nights on the Neck. Susan will discuss her two recent mystery novels, and read a short passage from each.
Please join us for this free event starting at 7:30 PM at the gallery on 53 Rocky Neck Avenue, Gloucester.
Susan Oleksiw writes the Anita Ray series featuring Indian American photographer Anita Ray, who has appeared in two books, Under the Eye of Kali (2010) and The Wrath of Shiva (2012). She also writes the Mellingham series featuring Chief of Police Joe Silva (A Murderous Innocence), now on Kindle.
Susan compiled A Reader’s Guide to the Classic British Mystery (1988), after spending years and years reading crime fiction and taking notes. Talking about her favorite books with friends just wasn't enough, so she offered her list of books to a publisher.
She was consulting editor for The Oxford Companion to Crime and Mystery Writing (1999), which is a wonderful reference on all sorts of topics related to crime fiction. In addition to writing and reviewing crime fiction, Susan was a co-founder of Level Best Books, which continues to thrive under new ownership, and The Larcom Press, which published The Larcom Review and a number of mysteries before its founders decided to move on to other challenges.
Special thanks to Susan Oleksiw!
