Three for One: Robin Oliveira, Barry Wightman, and Mark Stevens
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Thursday, May 15 at 7:30pm
This is going to fun! We've got three authors on one night, for triple the impact! Seattle's Robin Oliveira, Barry Wightman from Wisconsin, and mystery writer Mark Stevens out of Denver are joining together to give you a wide range of great reads, ready for summer vacations or graduation gifts! They will also be happy to offer insight to writers on the world of publishing, self-publishing, marketing, and promotion.

From Oliveira, whose My Name Is Mary Sutter has been a book group pick here, comes I Always Loved You, a historical novel about the tumultuous and passionate relationship between the artists Mary Cassat and Edgar Degas.

Barry Wightman's Pepperland is a '70s rock and roll race through the heartland of America--a love letter to the power of new-fangled computers and the importance of a guitar pick. What happens when a revolution dies and a new one begins?

Mark Stevens has made a name for himself in the Mountain West with his mystery series starring hunting guide Allison Coil. His last mystery, Buried by the Roan, also takes a sharp look at the environmental and societal impact of fracking for natural gas. Stevens will also bring the posthumously published stories of Gary Reilly, a Pushcart Prize winner whose Asphalt Warrior books have been steadily gaining fans.

Robin Oliveira holds a BA in Russian and studied at the Pushkin Language Institute in Moscow. She received an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and is also a registered nurse, specializing in critical care. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

Born in St. Louis, raised in Chicago and New England, Barry Wightman, a business major at Principia College in southern Illinois, claims he should’ve been an English major. Living for many years in Chicago and Minneapolis, he raised a family with his wife Jill, and spent thirty years in the high tech industry, traveling the world, spending time in Silicon Valley, with countless trips to Asia, Australia, and much of the rest of the world. After all that, he earned an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2010. He currently serves as vice president of marketing at Forward Health Group, Inc.

Mark Stevens manages his own freelance communications business in Denver. Previously, he has worked in school public relations in Denver and Greeley and was also a reporter for the Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News, and the Christian Science Monitor. He also worked as a field producer for The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour. Stevens is married and has two daughters.
