DARRELL JAMES & SUE ANN JAFFARIAN Launch in Style

Filed under: Uncategorized — ashedit @ 5:49 am

     

DARRELL JAMES, author of SONORA CROSSING greets guests in the sunny foyer. This is the second book of his Del Shannon series, a white-knuckle page-turner surrounding the rescue of a girl with prophetic vision from a drug cartel.

SUE ANN JAFFARIAN signs her latest, HIDE & SNOOP, book 7 of the Odelia Grey series, published by Midnight Ink. Publishers Weekly called it “enormously entertaining.”

STEVE KISER & SYBIL JOHNSON from Sisters in Crime. Sybil is a past president of the LA chapter, and a mystery writer.

TRAVIS RICHARDSON & TERESA WONG of Sisters in Crime, check out the elegant staircase and tapestries. Travis has recently been published in the SHOTGUN HONEY webzine and anthology.

That woman can make even a door look glamorous… Janis Lipson demonstrates the pocket security door leading to the top floor (very expensive to install inside a wall). Part of the original construction in 1932, no expense was spared for security, due to the recent kidnapping of the Lindburgh baby.

  2. Thanks Chris, the drawback is I always leave these things hungry and thirsty. There’s always plenty of food and generous hosts, but I need another pair of hands to handle a camera, pad and paper, a drink and a plate! EA

  4. Hi Charles, I’ve been thinking of you down in New Orleans, which has no shortage of elegant, old homes. So many things get torn down in LA, that the Wallace Neff mansion and its period restoration is really unqiue. Thanks for dropping by! EA
