Maryann Ridini Spencer

Award-Winning Screenwriter, Author, TV/Film Producer, Lifestyle Journalist, & PR/Marketing Consultant, will be discussing her new novel Lady in the Window (SelectBooks, 2017), as well as upcoming works. In Lady in the Window, Spencer draws from personal experience and her home in Hawaii, weaving a universal work that serves to inspire hope, healing and celebrate the bond between mother and daughter. Spencer is noted for writing such teleplays as the classic Hallmark Hall of Fame film, The Lost Valentine starring Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Find out more about Lady in the Window, here.  You can also visit her and her award-winning Simply Delicious Living blog at MaryannRidiniSpencer.com

James F. Gray

James Francis Gray hails from Massachusetts, arriving in California in 1962. He now resides in the city of Ventura. He’s been a printer all his life, owns and operates James F. Gray Printing in Ventura. He’s a published writer with four books for sale, Kali is Your Code Name, Gumshoe, Tales Told and his latest, Audrey’s Journal. He’s also a contributing writer for a local newspaper, The Ventura Breeze. Check out his web site: www.jamesfgray.com for more complete information about his books and to view book video trailers.

Mike Kennedy

Mike Kennedy has worked for the Department of Defense for over 37 years. He manages a missile test facility and travels throughout the world, working for the United States Navy and our NATO allies. His inspiration for the Mark Springfield series comes from many years of working with different technologies. His ability to weave real life events with fictional characters will leave you wondering if his stories are more non-fiction than fiction.

Mike lives in Ventura County with his wife and three children. He has many hobbies that revolve around his family, including shooting, camping, boating and working on auto restoration projects. Mike is currently working on his third book, Blind Allegiance.  Visit Mike at Facebook.com @MikeKennedyAuthor

Sheila Lowe

Like her fictional character, Claudia Rose, Sheila Lowe is a real-life forensic handwriting examiner who testifies in court cases. The mother of a tattoo artist and a former rock star, she lives in Ventura with Lexie the Very Bad Cat. Despite sharing living space with a feline, her Forensic Handwriting mystery series is definitely not cozy. If you enjoy psychological suspense and in-depth exploration of characters, they may be for you. She also writes nonfiction about handwriting analysis.
