Two literary programs will be presented next week in New Jersey. On Wednesday, September 25, at 7:00 p.m. at the Burlington County Library in Westhampton, “A Tale of Two Books” will feature a two part program. The first half will be a light and humorous look at how people who know a novelist personally approach his fiction. My two novels, A Favor Returned and Agent for Justice, will be the focus of the relationship between the author and his created characters and events. The second half will compare and contrast the two distinct editions of A Favor Returned, with almost fourteen years separating the release of the two versions of the novel.

On Thursday, September 26, Haddon Heights Library will host the “I Can’t Believe YOU Wrote That Book” program at 7:00 p.m. in its Station Avenue location. Since A Favor Returned is set in the fictional town of Collins Heights, I’ll be reminiscing about my experiences in the real town on which Collins Heights is based. (My old home town, Haddon Heights!) Portions of A Favor Returned and Agent for Justice will be used to demonstrate why such a variety of people have made the comment that they can’t believe I could write such books. 

I am hoping to see many of my old friends from both areas at these special programs!
