THERE’LL BE MURDER, MYSTERY, AND MAYHEM AT A STONE’S THROW WINERY!
San Juan Capistrano’s newest, oldest winery will be featuring local crime writers every other month beginning June 25th. Chad and Linda Kearns, owners of A Stone’s Throw Winery and Giracci Vineyard and Farms, have partnered with O.C.Writers, a network of over 800 local writers, to bring you Murder, Mystery, and Mayhem Sundays.
I’ll be there reading from the first book in the 7 Deadly Sins Series, A Margin of Lust.
The Swanner House, named a historic landmark in 2007, and its surrounding 2.6 acres of groves and gardens are home to the new winery and event center. Its rich history, Craftsman era tasting room, dry water tower, and speak-easy style garage inspired the idea. It’s a great backdrop for dark stories.
The events run from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Each will feature two authors. Short readings, time for question and answers, and book signings will be interspersed throughout the afternoon with live music, raffle prizes, and plenty of time to wine taste and enjoy the surroundings.
My buddy J.C. DeLaduranty, retired police chief with over forty years of law enforcement experience, will kick off the entertainment. His novel, Cowards, Crooks, and Warriors, features a dead cop, a ritualistic murder, and a LAPD Occult expert. I’m the second author of the day, and my duo Eclectic Blends will be singing between author readings!
Future events are scheduled for Sunday, August 27 and Sunday, October 29—authors to be announced.
