Murder Is My Day Job

Barbara Vey -- May 20th, 2010


Hello. joysann here again, doing the “cub reporter” thing for Barbara.

“Murder Is My Day Job”

Author Lisa Black

That’s how author Lisa Black, caught the attention of the 250 attendees at the semi-annual Writer’s Live Luncheon hosted by the Friends of the Medina County District Library, Medina, Ohio.  Listeners were rapt while the author of the Theresa MacLean mystery series described her own experiences as a forensic scientist in the coroner’s office in the Cleveland area. Though she began writing her novels long before the CSI phase began it’s popularity run, the current mystery trend has brought her series new attention, most recently with Evidence of Murder.


The luncheon was held at the Blue Heron Golf Club where, again, was served a lovely and delicious meal. The desserts were gorgeous and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I always enjoy these events held there. My table companions were fun too.

Lisa (also writing as Elizabeth Becka) was funny and entertaining with stories proving that there are “few criminal masterminds in real life”, and that,

even with the forensic technology available now, not every question can be answered. In response to a query whether her character is modeled after herself, Lisa says “she’s much better looking”, leaving me to wonder how she does that.

Bottom Line: Those of us who were there will be watching for her new book, Trail of Blood, coming out in September 2010.

    Ha! I’m returning to warm and fuzzy family type story roots — okay, with a couple cold cases, but nobody actually dies during the book — with the Shelter Bay series starting in July. Killing people for a living just got a tad depressing after so many years. ;)
