Join award-winning author Neily as she shares her novel Deadly Trespass, and discusses how she and other authors have crafted story-telling around urgent and timely stories that feature our natural world. Neily won a national Mystery Writers of America McCloy award, was a national finalist in the Women’s Fiction Writers Association’s “Rising Star,” contest, and recently was a fiction finalist in Maine’s “Joy of the Pen” competition, as well as a finalist in the 2018 Maine Literary Awards.
“Non-fiction discussions of environmental challenges are not usually best sellers---but mysteries and thrillers are,” Neily said. “Often these works are well researched and compelling, and they take readers to landscapes and issues that need attention. But they do it as page-turning entertainment!”
