Husband and wife writing team highlight April WordFest

The next WordFest on Tuesday, April 5, will feature Mike Nettleton and Carolyn J. Rose, husband and wife, who have collaborated on a number of quirky murder mysteries set on the Oregon Coast, including The Big Grabowski, Hard Karma Shuffle, The Velvet Miasma, and their newest mystery, Sometimes a Great Commotion. In addition to their collaboration, each has written books individually. Carolyn’s newest mystery, Hemlock Lake, was released last year.

Mike and Carolyn will read from their work and talk about  how they collaborate on the writing of their books.

In the second hour Charolette Conklin will read her humorous short story, “Fighting Words,”¬† which placed second in the literary magazine Rambunctious Review‘s recent competition.

Jane Isfeld Still will be reading from the next book in her “Mother’s Daze” series–The Crazy Daze of Motherhood–out just in time for Mother’s Day.

The Brits owner Alice Dietz offers a select menu and wine and beer for those who wish dinner with the readings. The Brits opens at 5:30 pm.
