Gail Oust is often accused of flunking retirement.  While working as a nurse/vascular technologist, she penned nine historical romances under the pseudonym of Elizabeth Turner.  It wasn’t until she and her husband retired to South Carolina that inspiration struck for a mystery.  Hearing the words “maybe it’s a dead body” while golfing fired her imagination for writing a cozy mystery novel.  Ever since then, she spends more time on a computer than at a golf course. She has recently completed Ginger Snapped, the new novel in her Spice Shop Mysteries series. 

The McCormick Library will host a presentation by Gail Oust at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 26th. Gail will talk about her new book and about the unique aspects of writing a fiction series. The free presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and book signing.
