Sisters in Crime New England for Mystery Making

Avoid the post-Thanksgiving blues by joining four fantastic local mystery authors for Mystery Making on Saturday, November 25 at 2 pm. For this interactive presentation, Maureen Boyle, Sharon Healy-Yang, Stephen Rogers and Sharon Ward will brainstorm on their feet to create a brand new mystery, using suggestions from the audience. Come be part of the fun.

            Maureen Boyle is the author of two true-crime books, Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer and The Ghost: The Murder of Police Chief Greg Adams and the Hunt for His Killer. She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a master’s degree in criminal justice. She is now the journalism program director at Stonehill College in Easton, MA.

            Sharon Healy-Yang’s passion for films and books created during the 1930s-50s, with their blend of sharp wit, humor, and dark suspense inspired her to write, Bait and Switch, a mystery/romance set in 1943 and a finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards, as well as its sequels: the noir-inflected Letter from a Dead Man and Always Play the Dark Horse.

            Stephen Rogers is the author of Shot to Death, Three-Minute Mysteries, and more than 900 shorter pieces. He is President of MWA/NE and Co-chair of the New England Crime Bake Committee.

            Sharon Ward is the author of the Fin Fleming Scuba Diving Mystery Series, which includes In Deep, Sunken Death, Dark Tide, Killer Storm, Hidden Depths and Sea Stars. Rip Current, the seventh book, will be released in late 2023. She lives near Cape Cod with her husband Jack and their miniature long-haired dachshund Molly, the actual head of the Ward household.

            No registration is required for this event, which is a Purrington Lecture Series program sponsored by the Mattapoisett Library Trust. Contact the library at (508) 758-4171 with any questions or email to to get more information.
