Coming in June: Santa Cruz Noir & book launch events

Liza Monroy News, Events, & Musings

Thrilled to be a contributor to the latest anthology in Akashic’s long-running Noir series, edited by Susie Bright, and featuring my talented friends & colleagues Elizabeth McKenzie, Micah Perks, Jill Wolfson, Peggy Townsend, Beth Lisick, Wallace Baine, and many other fantastic writers whose stories you’ll want to dive into. It’s an honor to be in their company. My story, “Mischa and the Seal,” was inspired by my obsession with local sea life and an incident involving a stolen hotel towel. I will be a part of two California book launch events, in Santa Cruz and Los Angeles. Here are the deets:
