About this author

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorna Barrett’s name on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s). Check out the links to all her works here: http://www.lornabarrett.com

NEXT UP: Not The Killing Type (Booktown #7) will be released 7/2/13, and the paperback edition of Murder On The Half Shelf will debut the same day.

That sounds like the perfect (un)Labor Day to me. What are you up to today?
