Cozy Mystery Queen, Melodie Campbell

November 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Nothing is off the table in this “Ask me anything” event with bestselling author Melodie Campbell.

Get your questions answered by award-winning mystery-comedy writer Melodie Campbell, who has over 100 comedy credits, 17 novels and 60 short stories to her name. Ask whatever question that’s on your mind—whether it’s about the mechanics of writing, coming up with enticing plots, keys to getting started or the secrets to making readers laugh out loud. Melodie delivers the goods in this AMA (Ask Me Anything). Come with questions, leave with inspiration!

Melodie also discusses her latest novel, The Merry Widow Murders. When an inconvenient body shows up in her stateroom, Lady Lucy Revelstoke and her pickpocket-turned-maid Elf know how to make it disappear—and find the killer. But can they do it before authorities look into Lucy’s dodgy past? “The high society flair of Death on the Nile meets a 1920s ocean liner in this sensational mystery from Melodie Campbell.” (Open Book)


Called the “Queen of Comedy” by the Toronto Sun, Melodie Campbell has penned multiple bestsellers and won 10 awards, including The Derringer (US) and the Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence. She is the past executive director of Crime Writers of Canada and currently contributes to the Sleuthsayers criminal blog every month.

A Different Drummer Books will be onsite selling the book for signing after the talk.
