On Monday, April 28th at 7pm, Archer Mayor, the New York Times bestselling author of the police procedural series featuring detective Joe Gunther will appear at the Moore-Leland Library in North Orange.
Mayor has integrated his actual police experiences with intricately detailed plot lines into novels that The New York Times has called "dazzling," and Booklist has said are "among the best cop stories being written today." The result adds a depth, detail, and veracity to his characters and their tribulations that has led The New York Times to call him "The boss man on procedures," and the Arizona Daily Star to write, "Few deliver such well-rounded novels of such consistent high quality."
Mayor's first novel, Open Season, was published in 1988, and was the first of his popular Joe Gunther mystery series. Since then, a new novel has been published every year, typically in the fall. Mayor devotes much of the year researching various components of his novel, in addition to working as a death investigator for the Vermont State Medical Examiner's office and as a deputy for the Windham County Sheriff's Dept. He also volunteers for his local Fire Department and EMT squad. Archer is a Yale graduate and lives in Newfane, Vermont.
Archer Mayor brings to gatherings of all ages and backgrounds a wealth of experience, an easy give-and-take style, a lively wit, and a natural feel for the needs and interests of his audience. Mayor makes each presentation unique, drawing on questions, comments, revelations, and challenges to construct an engaging, absorbing dialogue. Anyone with an interest in writing and/or reading will find themselves enlightened, amused, and, for once, with all their questions answered. Copies of his latest books will be available for sale and author signing.
