Donis Casey hosts a monthly series of author essays, Tell Me Your Story, on her website (https://doniscasey.com), inviting successful authors to share their life experiences and tell how those events have influenced their writing. Her February guest is New York-based author Tim Maleeny (https://timmaleeny.com/). Of Tim’s award-winning Cape Weathers series of mysteries Booklist says, “The Cape Weathers mysteries are smart, snappily written, energetic mysteries starring an engaging hero.” His bestselling comedic thriller, JUMP, is “a perfectly blended cocktail of escapism” (Publishers Weekly). His short fiction appears in several major anthologies and has won the Macavity Best Story of the Year Award. Tim's story appears February 20-29. In March, Donis’s program will host Jeffrey Siger (https://jeffreysiger.com), an American living on the Aegean Greek island of Mykonos. A former Wall Street lawyer, he abandoned his career as a partner in his own NY City law firm to write mystery thrillers. His tell-itlike-it-is Andreas Kaldis novels explore serious societal issues confronting modern day Greece. They are so spoton that he receives an impressive number of death threats; he seeks to improve that number with posts about Greece every Saturday on the Murder is Everywhere blogsite (https://murderiseverywhere.blogspot.com/) that he shares with nine renowned mystery writers from around the world. Jeff's story will appear March 20-31 at (https://doniscasey.com)
