Mystery Author M.K. Graff Speaks at Cohoes Public Library at 11 am on 10/18

The Cohoes Public Library invites you to a presentation by M.K. Graff, a popular mystery author, at 11 am on October 18 at the library. M.K. (Marni) Graff has published poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. A retired nurse, Graff’s background includes working on scripts for television and motion pictures and as an on-set consultant for medical scenes. She has conducted interviews and has written feature articles for Mystery Review magazine before studying literature at Oxford University, which inspired the setting for “The Blue Virgin,” winner of first prize in the Mystery and Mayhem Award for British Cozy in the Chanticleer Blue Ribbon Writing Competitions and the book that introduced us to Nora Tierney, the author protagonist of the colorful series. A love of the beautiful Lake District of England inspired the backdrop for M.K.’s novel, “The Green Remains,” which was followed by “The Scarlet Wench,” a continuation of Nora Tierney’s adventures. Drawing on her background in the television industry, Marni then introduced us to Trudy Genova in “Unscripted.” Ms. Graff has taught creative writing and memoir writing and leads the North Carolina Writers Read workshop for adults and young authors. A member of Sisters in Crime, Graff s creative nonfiction was most recently published in Southern Women’s Review. Marni’s newest book, “The Golden Hour,” continues the adventures of Nora Tierney. Her presentation, at 11 am, on October 18, is open to everyone.
