Chelsea Cain Signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, September 19, 2014 at 7pm
As her online bio states, Chelsea Cain was not an ordinary child ...with her expansive pet cemetery and the deep interest in the local terror known as The Green River Killer. Later, as she worked as a journalist and PR firm’s creative director, she toiled away at fiction writing. While she wrote novel after novel, it wasn’t until she saw The Green River Killer back in the news, this time in hand cuffs, that she received the inspiration for her “gory thriller” that would become 2007’s Heartsick, an MG signed first edition pick. Five novels later, Chelsea launches One Kick, the first in a new series, about a former kidnap victim who has developed resilience and combat skills and uses them to find two missing children. One Kick is one of our Fantastic First selections for September.

Dark and Stormy Night Author Series: Chelsea Cain, author of the Gretchen Lowell series
Driftwood Public Library, Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 4:30pm
Driftwood Public Library is delighted to announce the schedule of mystery writers for its 10th annual Dark & Stormy Night series for this October. The series takes place at the library at 4:30 each Thursday afternoon in October, with the exception of the last event, which, due to the anticipated audience interest and size, will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Halloween!
Eleven years ago, Driftwood teamed with the late Marcy Taylor to bring Northwest mystery writers to the Oregon coast. That first year was so successful that the series has continued every October, with only one break while the library was closed for its renovation in the Autumn and early Winter of 2009. For the 10th series, the library has asked some of its favorite mystery writers from past years to return, and the result is a very exciting lineup!
On October 24th, we’re delighted to welcome back Chelsea Cain, the author of the wildly successful, if gruesome, Gretchen Lowell novels. The week Chelsea visited us in 2007 was the same week she signed a contract to turn her novel, Heartsick, into a series. There are now six books in the series, including this year’s Let Me Go.
All events in the Dark & Stormy Night series are free to the public and made possible by ongoing generous support from The Driftwood Library Foundation and from D’Sands Condominium Motel and The Anchor Inn. Questions about the series may be directed to Ken Hobson at Driftwood Public Library: 541-996-1242 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Driftwood Public Library is located at 801 SW HWY 101 in Lincoln City on the 2nd floor of the City Hall building, across the street from Burger King and adjacent to Price ‘n Pride Grocery Store.

CHELSEA CAIN, KILL YOU TWICE
Village Books, Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 7pm
For Archie Sheridan, the damaged hero of Chelsea Cain's four New York Times best-selling novels, surviving days of torture at the hands of beautiful serial killer Gretchen Lowell was only the beginning. Gretchen's been in the hands of the law, off and on, for years, but in Kill You Twice, she proves as dangerous as ever.
Now locked away in a mental hospital, Gretchen continues to play her manipulative games with an increasing resistant Archie. But when Archie gets called in to investigate a horrific new murder, a man has been skinned alive in a secluded part of a public park, Gretchen's pleas to Archie become more frantic. She actually has information about the killer he can use, and she may have something to gain from his capture. Archie meets with Gretchen to find her as manipulative as ever but also truly suffering, and possibly in deteriorating health. Archie soon realizes that he’s not the only one facing demons from the past.
Chelsea Cain's first four novels featuring Archie Sheridan have all been New York Times bestsellers. Also the author of Confessions of a Teen Sleuth, a parody based on the life of Nancy Drew, and several nonfiction titles, she was born in Iowa, raised in Bellingham, Washington, and now lives in Portland, Oregon.

Poisoned Pen, A Mystery Bookstore, Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 6:30pm
Chelsea Cain reads from The Night Season.
Chelsea Cain signs The Night Season With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan—a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims—can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that’s what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn’t drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water. Soon after, three of those drownings are also proven to be murders. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case. Reporter Susan Ward is chasing this story of a new serial killer with gusto, but she’s also got another lead to follow for an entirely separate mystery: The flooding has unearthed a skeleton, a man who might have died more than sixty years ago, the last time Portland flooded this badly, when the water washed away an entire neighborhood and killed at least fifteen people. With Archie following the bizarre trail of evidence and evil deeds to catch a killer and possibly regain his life, and Susan Ward close behind, Chelsea Cain—one of today’s most talented suspense writers—launches the next installment of her bestselling series with an electric thriller.
