      MWA-NY Crime Fiction Reading Series

      Join the Mystery Writers of America, New York Chapter, for another thrilling night of chilling crime fiction! Readers include Annamaria Alfieri, Lokke Heiss, Thomas Pluck, Sterling Savage, Sylvia Di Saverio, and Rich Zahradnik. Hosted by MWA-NY's Ann Aptaker. This event is free and open to the public. Scheduled to Read Annamaria Alfieri is the author of three historical mysteries set in South America. Of the first of her Africa series, Strange Gods, placed in British East Africa, 1911, the Richmond Times-Dispatch said, “the flair of Isak Dinesen and Beryl Markham, the cunning of Agatha Christie and Elspeth Huxley." The Idol of Mombasa joined the series in 2016. Alfieri, along with Michael Stanley, edited the anthology Sunshine Noir, which Peter James called “a gem—a whole new movement,” in crime fiction.Lokke Heiss practices medicine in New York City and has a degree in film studies from the University of Southern California. His published work includes fiction and nonfiction in journals and newspapers including the New York Post, Cinefantastique, and South Carolina Review. He is a Dracula scholar and has traveled to Romania to investigate the sources behind the vampire legends. Heiss recently completed a gothic medical thriller title Pronounced Dead. Thomas Pluck has slung hash, worked on the docks, trained in martial arts in Japan, and even swept the Guggenheim museum (but not as part of a clever heist). He hails from Nutley, New Jersey, home to criminal masterminds Martha Stewart and Richard Blake, but has so far evaded capture. He is the author of Bad Boy Boogie, his first Jay Desmarteaux crime thriller, and Blade of Dishonor, an action adventure which BookPeople called “the Raiders of the Lost Ark of pulp paperbacks.” Sterling Savage is new to writing fiction, and this is his first reading. His day job is working as an emergency physician and instructor at Yale's Bridgeport Hospital. A former military officer, he has been a SWAT team officer, an Operational Space Flight Surgeon for NASA, and is a certified Master Scuba Diver. When not writing, he enjoys being taken for walks in the Connecticut countryside by his rescue Great Dane, Sally. Sylvia Di Saverio started her professional career as a classical violinist and violist but the desire to write fiction was always in the back of her mind. Now she works in corporate coffee sales and has completed writing her first mystery story. She lives in Astoria with her husband and her cat, Tiger, and they drink coffee while listening as she reads, out loud, her revisions. Rich Zahradnik is the award-winning author of the critically acclaimed Coleridge Taylor Mystery series (Lights Out Summer, A Black Sail, Drop Dead Punk, Last Words). The first three books have been shortlisted or won awards in the three major competitions for novels from independent presses. He lives with his wife Sheri and son Patrick in Pelham, New York, where he writes fiction and teaches kids around the New York area how to write news stories and publish newspapers.
