Upcoming Author Visit: Julie Kramer

Book Cover

Silencing Sam by Julie Kramer

In Silencing Sam, the third installment in the Riley Spartz series, mystery writer Julie Kramer continues to write about what she knows—television news reporting. The former head of the investigative unit at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis has created a character in Riley whose reporting job keeps getting her involved in murder investigations. This time around, the investigation takes on new urgency, since Riley herself is a suspect in the murder of smarmy gossip columnist Sam Pierce, with whom she has had a very public spat. On top of that, the station has hired a new reporter who is determined to scoop Riley on the story and the case.

On Monday, June 28, at 7 pm in the Library Auditorium, Kramer will present a reading and signing of her new book. The event is free and open to the public, and is co-sponsored by The Raven Book Store, which will make books available for purchase.

Julie Kramer is a freelance network news producer. Her debut thriller, Stalking Susan, won the Minnesota Book Award and the RT Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best First Mystery, and was a finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award and the Anthony Award. She lives with her family in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
