Book Talk at the Fairfield Public Library

The Fairfield Public Library will hold a book signing and talk with best-selling author, Mary Jane Clark. 
She will present her newest book, "To Have and To Kill," (William Morrow--Dec. 28, 2010) on Tuesday, April 26 at 11:00 a.m. in the Rotary Room of the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. 
A light lunch will follow her lecture and book signing. 
To Have and To Kill is the first book in The Wedding Cake Mystery series. Down-on-her-luck actress Piper Donovan, returns home to assist her mother, who is suffering from macular degeneration, in the family bakery.  As Piper undertakes wedding cake preparations for a famous daytime soap opera star, deadly things start to happen around the bride-to-be. 
"My aim is lay out all the clues in such a way that you don't even realize that you've been given the answer to the mystery until you get to the end... and then realize "Aha... it was there all the time but I just didn't see it," said Clark.
This book introduces an intriguing cast of characters and is full of mystery, intrigue and mayhem. Clark is the author of thirteen novels, including twelve in the KEY News media thriller series.   Those twelve novels include: Do You Want to Know a Secret? Do You Promise Not to Tell? Let Me Whisper in Your Ear, Close to You, Nobody Knows, Nowhere to Run, Hide Yourself Away, Dancing in the Dark, Lights Out Tonight, When Day Breaks, It Only Takes a Moment and Dying for Mercy.
Clark spent three decades at CBS News' New York City headquarters.  She began her career as a desk assistant after graduating with degrees in journalism and political science from the University of Rhode Island and worked her way through the ranks to become a producer and writer.  Her books have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly and other national bestseller lists.
