Dietrich Kalteis, JoAnn Smith Ainsworth, and Patrick Whitehurst – three authors at Old Capitol Books

Sunday 16 October 2016, 3pm-5pm: We’re going to have a special afternoon with three authors coming to discuss their work together and with the Monterey Bay community.

About Dietrich Kalteis

Publishers’ Weekly calls Dietrich Kalteis’s third novel Triggerfish a fast moving, high-octane page turner. The National Post said his second novel The Deadbeat Club deserves to be something of a breakout for Kalteis, and Crimespree Magazine calls it gritty and raw, satisfying the need for all things dark. His award-winning debut novel Ride the Lightning was hailed as one of the best Vancouver crime novels. More than 40 of his short stories have been published internationally, and his screenplay Between Jobs was a finalist in the Los Angeles Screenplay Festival. He lives with his family in Vancouver, BC.

About JoAnn Smith Ainsworth

Ainsworth writes:

When I carried wood as a pre-teen so my Great Aunt Martha could stoke up the iron stove to prepare dinner, I wasn’t thinking, “I could use this in a novel someday.” Yet almost 60 years later, the skills I learned from my horse-and-buggy ancestors translate into backdrops for my historical romance novels. Growing up with paternal grandparents born in the 1890’s made creating historical novels a logical choice.
