The Marlborough High School gals showed up! From left: Mary Adams O’Connell, Marty Alexander Hope, ELIZABETH CARROLL, AUTHOR, Evelyn Bibb Kroener, Gayla Blasdel Claes

Vivacious Libby du Bay says, “That’s my kind of crime time!”

Right: QUINN CLOONEY, who divides her time between Ireland and SoCal. Quinn is penning an Irish mystery. Left: JIM, an author’s best pal.

ELIZABETH CARROLL gave a meaningful talk, citing crime novels as “the morality plays of our time.” Her book is dedicated to Gloria, a former patient who passed away after leading a life of “trying to please everybody.” Elizabeth cared for Gloria on numerous occasions when she was admitted to ER with injuries related to “domestic incidents.” “I want my writing to show life is worth living,” said the author.

Right: David Stanisfield, author of ONE LAST GREAT WICKEDNESS and wife, Denise.

RIGHT to Left: CINNY KENNARD, journalist with her own story about America’s Most Wanted criminal, Whitey Bulger, VITTORIO MORANDIN and CHASE KENNARD.

Thanks much to JIM FOYER,  SAILBOATS UNLIMITED, who helped me with directions when I was stumbling around Marina Del Rey and couldn’t find the party! —Elaine Ash
