About the Author:

About the SCNY Mystery Book Club:
Since 2013 the SCNY Book Club has met monthly with the exception of June and July. The books discussed are primarily mystery novels. Some memorable authors explored have included Agatha Christie, Lee Child, Louise Penny and Ruth Rendell.
Books are selected based on geographic or historical interest, such as works by author Donna Leon whose crime novels are set in Venice, Italy and Peter Tremayne, Celtic scholar and historian whose focus is Seventh Century Ireland. We have had new authors discuss their writings including Paul Paradise, who writes about murder, trademark counterfeiting, and product piracy and Radha Vatsal, award winning mystery writer whose books center around a young female reporter in New York City during the 1910’s.
All books selected are readily accessible through the public library, and when not, can be purchased for a nominal fee. This is in alliance with the SCNY 50l (c) (3) Not for Profit organization status, as providing free arts programs for the general public.
