RVA Lit Crawl with Sisters In Crime

Join us for an afternoon/evening with marvelous mystery authors!!!


New York Times bestselling suspense author Mary Burton writes romantic suspense 

and her latest books, The Dollmaker and The Hangman, are the second and third books 

in her The Forgotten Files series. A Richmond native, she is currently working on her 

next suspense novel.

Maggie King is the author of MURDER AT THE BOOK GROUP and the newly-released 

MURDER AT THE MOONSHINE INN. She contributed stories to the VIRGINIA IS FOR 

MYSTERIES and the VIRGINIA IS FOR MYSTERIES VOL. II anthologies. Maggie is a 

member of Sisters in Crime and James River Writers. She lives in Richmond with her 

husband, Glen, and two cats, Morris and Olive. 

Mary Miley is a historian and the author of four mysteries set in the Roaring Twenties, 

beginning with THE IMPERSONATOR, winner of the Mystery Writers of America Best 

First Crime Novel award. She received her B.A. and M.A. from the College of William 

and Mary, worked for Colonial Williamsburg for many years, and taught American 

history at Virginia Commonwealth University. Her alter ego, Mary Miley Theobald, is a 

freelance nonfiction writer with eleven books and 200 articles for a variety of magazines 

and newspapers. When not immersed in the past, she retreats to the Virginia winery 

she owns with several friends—something that would have been shockingly illegal in the 

Prohibition era. 

LynDee Walker is the author of six national bestselling mysteries featuring Richmond 

crime reporter Nichelle Clarke, beginning with the Agatha Award-nominated FRONT 

PAGE FATALITY (2013). The newest book in the series, LETHAL LIFESTYLES, was 

published on September 27, 2016. 

Before she started writing mysteries, LynDee was an award-winning journalist. Her work 

has appeared in newspapers and magazines across the U.S. 

She adores her family, her readers, and enchiladas. She often works out tricky plot 

points while walking off the enchiladas. She lives in Richmond, Virginia, where she is 

either playing with her children, working on her next novel, or admiring beautiful shoes 

she can't wear. 

Heather Weidner’s short stories appear in the VIRGINIA IS FOR MYSTERIES 

anthology series and 50 SHADES OF CABERNET (March 2017). She is a member of 

Sisters in Crime – Central Virginia, Guppies and Lethal Ladies Write. SECRET LIVES

AND PRIVATE EYES is her debut novel.

Originally from Virginia Beach, Heather has been a mystery fan since Scooby Doo and 

Nancy Drew. She lives in Central Virginia with her husband and a pair of Jack Russell

terriers. Through the years, she has been a technical writer, editor, college professor, 

software tester, and IT manager.

Rosemary Shomaker writes about the layers beneath ordinary occurrences. You can 

find her haunting estate sales, peering into abandoned buildings, and reconnoitering 

vacant lots, all in the name of fiction research. Several of her short stories fit the 

mystery genre, and she’s a member of the Central Virginia chapter of Sisters in Crime. 

Check the Koehler Books Virginia is for Mysteries and the Mozark Press A Shaker of 

Margaritas anthologies for a sampling of her work. She’s an urban planner by degree, a 

government policy analyst by practice, and a fiction writer at heart. 

Kristin Kisska, a native Virginian, used to be a finance geek, complete with MBA and 

Wall Street pedigree. A member of Sisters in Crime, Kristin is now a self-proclaimed 

fictionista. Her short mystery story, “The Sevens” was included in Bouchercon’s 

anthology, Murder under the Oaks (October 2015). When not writing suspense novels, 

she can be found tweeting or on her website. Kristin lives in Richmond with her husband 

and three children.
