Sleuths & Sidekicks” is an interactive virtual event featuring the authors of four mystery series: The Batavia-on-Hudson Mysteries, The Blackwell and Watson Time-Travel Mysteries, The Maggie White Mysteries and The Southern California Mysteries

A great mystery series is about more than a puzzling crime. It’s the sleuths and their sidekicks who make us fall in love with a book. Join Tina deBellegarde, Jen Collins Moore, Carol Pouliot, and Lida Sideris for an interactive conversation about their detectives and their sidekicks. 

Free and open to the public. Registration is required in order to obtain the Zoom link.

Hosted by the Arts & Literature Division. For additional information, please contact Carol.Moldt@libraryweb.org or 428-8380.

About the Authors:

Nominated for the Agatha Award for Best New Novel, the Retreat West and the Blue Pencil Agency’s First Novel Award, Winter Witness is the first in Tina DeBellegarde's Batavia-on-Hudson Mystery Series. Tina lives in Catskill, New York with her husband Denis and their cat Shelby. When she isn’t writing, Tina is helping Denis tend their beehives, harvest shiitake mushrooms, and cultivate their vegetable garden. She travels to Japan regularly to visit her son Alessandro.

Jen Collins Moore transports readers to Rome in her new series, the Maggie White Mysteries. The perfect blend of funny and smart, Jen’s debut novel, Murder in the Piazza, is filled with the art, history and food of Europe’s greatest city. The founder of Meez Meals, Jen lives in Chicago with her husband and two sons.

An unexplained vision led Carol Poulliot to create the acclaimed Blackwell and Watson Time-Travel Mysteries, traditional police procedurals with a seemingly impossible relationship between Depression-era cop Steven Blackwell and 21st-century journalist Olivia Watson. With their fast pace and unexpected twists and turns, both Doorway to Murder (Book 1) and Threshold of Deceit (Book 2) have earned readers’ praise. A former teacher and business owner, Carol now enjoys the peace and quiet of the countryside in Upstate New York where she happily works on her series as the snow reaches over 13 feet every winter.

Lida Sideris' first stint after law school was a newbie lawyer's dream: working as an entertainment attorney for a movie studio...kind of like her heroine, Corrie Locke, except without the homicides. Lida was one of two national winners of the Helen McCloy Mystery Writers of America Scholarship Award for her first book. She lives in the northern tip of Southern California with her family, rescue dogs and a flock of uppity chickens.
