1-1:50pm: Bernadette Pajer for her Professor Bradshaw mystery series.

Each book in the series passed rigorous peer reviews by the Washington Academy of Sciences, earning their seal of approval. The plots may be fictional, but the scientific and historical facts are real. NYT author William Dietrich said of A Spark of Death “. . . crackles with mystery, romance, and expert, evocative explanation of electricity.” Enter the Professor’s world, a time of no holds barred invention that created today’s electrical wonders. Bernadette Pajer is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Northwest Science Writers, the Washington Academy of Sciences, and the Seattle7Writers.org.
