No, Auntie M is not Millie Nelson.

But she IS on the road until the end of October, doing readings and signings (and hopefully selling) THE BLUE VIRGIN. She’ll be traveling all the way to Maine and back, ending with a workshop in Baltimore on “Creating Killer Characters.” Screw Iowa master poet Nina Romano will be conducting a simultaneous workshop on Poetry, and man, is she good!

If you are in the Baltimore area and might be interested in joining her on Sunday, October 24th in the afternoon, check out for particulars. Room still available.

She is bringing along a sack of books so watch this spot for updates on reviews to come, including Louise Penny’s newest BURY YOUR DEAD.
