Minerva Koenig on June 14
Mystery writer Minerva Koenig will discuss gender roles in crime fiction at 2:15 p.m. at the Sisters in Crime: Heart of Texas chapter meeting on Sunday, June 14 at the Yarborough branch of the Austin Public Library, 2200 Hancock Drive.
Her first novel was Nine Days.
“She’s short, round, and pushing forty, but Julia Kalas is a damned good criminal. For seventeen years she renovated historic California buildings as a laundry front for her husband’s illegal arms business. Then the Aryan Brotherhood made her a widow, and witness protection shipped her off to the tiny town of Azula, Texas. Also known as the Middle of Nowhere.”
Ms. Koenig’s second novel is the soon-to-available South of Nowhere.
“The dead body stuffed into the upstairs closet at Julia Kalas’ fixer-upper ranch house has been there too long to be related to her short-lived WITSEC past, but that doesn’t stop the local cops from giving her the hairy eyeball.”
Details about her biography and books can be found at her website.
