Book Signing: Jill Yesko, Dog Spelled Backwards: An Unholy Mystery
Greetings & Readings of Hunt Valley, Saturday, October 25 at 1pm
Author Jill Yesko said, "Dog Spelled Backwards continues the adventures of Jane Ronson, my Lisbeth Salander of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo-inspired protagonist as she is drawn deeper and deeper into the shady and dangerous world of black market kidneys.

"Adding to the intrigue, I've placed Jane in the heart of Baltimore's insular Orthodox Jewish community, a tip of the hat to Witness - one of my favorite movies. I hope you enjoy the sequel to Murder in the Dog Park." (GRatHVTC)… (more)

Short biography
Julia Cameron (born March 4, 1948 in Illinois) is an American teacher, author, artist, poet, playwright, novelist, filmmaker, composer, and journalist. She is perhaps most famous for her book The Artist's Way (1992). She also has written many other non-fiction works, short stories, and essays as well as novels, plays, musicals, and screenplays. She started college at Georgetown University, then transferred to Fordham. She started her journalism career at the Washington Post, then moved on to Rolling Stone. A review of Cameron's memoir Floor Samples states that Cameron "reveals the dark side of her privileged life: her descent into alcoholic blackouts and drug-induced paranoia as well as descriptions of her bouts with psychosis." In 1978, reaching a point in her life when writing and drinking could no longer coexist, Cameron stopped the drugs and alcohol, and started a daily writing quota that propelled her to fame. She states creativity is an authentic spiritual path.

Cameron is also a teacher, having taught at The Smithsonian, Esalen, the Omega Institute, and the New York Open Center. At Northwestern University, she was writer in residence for film. She is currently teaching a class at the New York Open Center, 'The Right to Write,' named and modeled after one of her bestselling books, which reveals the importance of writing.

Cameron has lived in Los Angeles, Chicago, Taos, and Washington D.C., but now lives in New York City.
