This is a request for a Zoom interview or to present a workshop/class. I am author of ten books including, The Senior Sleuths and Dying To Be Beautiful Mystery Series and The Gourmet Gangster, Mysteries and Menus (with my son Jory Rosen), published by Level Best Books. And, author of The Woman's Business Therapist and award winning My Memoir Workbook. These Zoom events are informative, interesting and even some fun.

I can also present writing Zoom events on topics relevant to published authors and those on their way to being published. I bring nearly twenty years experience and knowledge as an advisor to numerous writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and children's books... plus my own experiences as author of ten books to date.

I have given many writer's workshops and classes, been a guest speaker and published articles on topics such as: "Encouraging the Writer Within You," "Value of Networking," "Published...Now What?," "Writing Mysteries...Not A Mystery," "Memoir-Life Writing," "Writing From Your Soul," and "The Gangster's Daughter."

August 21, 2020, A Senior Sleuths Mystery, "Dead In THAT Beach House," Published by Level Best Books is the third in the series is available at your local book store, and Barnes & This series of murder and mayhem is written in a modern noir style with charming, witty, deliciously clever soft-boiled sleuths.

Like Nick and Nora Charles from "The Thin Man" series, Dick and Dora Zimmerman from "The Senior Sleuths," solve crimes, especially murders in surprising locations such as when a dead body is found in an icebox with a note that says, "Contents rotten." Dick and Dora Zimmerman, along with Zero the Bookie and a fascinating cast of other characters, strive for justice. That is not always an easy thing to accomplish when the bad guy is just as determined to strive for injustice!

This series is the senior version of Nick and Nora Charles, with a humorous touch, a splash of noir, cracker-jack sleuthing, unusual, captivating characters, and fascinating mysteries.
