the upcoming live performances at the Mystery Writers
This comes from Owensboro, Kentucky, where I am working hard with a fine

International Mystery Writers' Festival. We are doing all four of Agatha
Christie's radio plays!

see us in person, PLEASE come by all means......and if you can't come,
you can hear us LIVE on the Web on the final night of the run, Saturday,
NOTE: If you're coming in person, check into getting tickets soon --
seating in the theatre does have limits!
