2:00 Featured Speaker: Stephan Provost
Stephen H. Provost is an author, editor and columnist with more than 30 years of experience as a journalist. He has written on subjects as diverse as history, religion, politics and language and has served as an editor for fiction and non-fiction projects. His book “Fresno Growing Up,” a history of Fresno, California, during the postwar years, is available on Craven Street Books, an imprint of Linden Publishing. His next work, tentatively scheduled for release this coming winter, will examine the history of U.S. Highway 99 in California. In addition, the author has published several books as Stifyn Emrys, beginning in 2012 with “The Gospel of the Phoenix” and also including the nonfiction works “The Way of the Phoenix” and “Undefeated.” He also has published three works of fiction: “Feathercap” (children’s); “Identity Break,” and an accompanying novella, “Artifice.”
With little more than an urge to hang out at the beach, write mystery novels, and mollify a grumpy cat who’d never ridden in a car before, Sue McGinty left Los Angeles on June 17, 1994—the same day OJ Simpson took flight across the LA freeways. Unlike OJ, Sue had a destination in mind: the Central Coast town of Los Osos. Not the Cabot Cove of “Murder She Wrote,” but close.
Her Central Coast mysteries, “Murder in Los Lobos” and “Murder at Cuyamaca Beach,” feature former nun turned sleuth Bella Kowalski. In Sue’s new novel, “Murder in Mariposa Bay,” Bella confronts an unsavory group with murder in mind as they attempt to muscle in on the lucrative Los Lobos sewer contract.
