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.  Ever since then, she spends more time on a computer than at a golf course. Author of the Bunco Babe mysteries, she is currently writing the Spice Shop Mysteries.  Rosemary and Crime marks their debut.

The Friends of the McCormick Library will host local author Gail Oust for a presentation entitled Fifty Shades of Mystery at 7 pm on Thursday, January 9th at the library. The free presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and book signing.
