Hallie Ephron selected as 2023-2024 Dr. Herb Voigt Writer-in-Residence at Milton Public Library
The Milton Public Library is excited to announce that local writer Hallie Ephron has been selected as the 2023-2024 Dr. Herb Voigt Writer-in-Residence.
Hallie Ephron is a NY Times bestselling author of suspense novels reviewers have called “deliciously creepy.” Her newest, Careful What You Wish For, is a mash-up of Antiques Roadshow and Strangers on a Train. Her Never Tell a Lie was adapted for film for the Lifetime Movie Network.
A five-time finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award, her Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel, now revised and expanded, was an Edgar Award and Anthony Award finalist. Lee Child called it “the best how-to guide I have ever seen–I just wish I could have read it years ago.”
Hallie blogs regularly on the Anthony award-winning Jungle Red Writers. She is a popular presenter at events and writing conferences across the US and abroad. She was the crime fiction book reviewer for the Boston Globe for a dozen years and won the Ellen Nehr Award for Excellence in Mystery Reviewing. She is also a past president of the New England chapter of Sisters in Crime.
Hallie will be offering workshops and events for library patrons throughout her residency, and we invite the community to welcome Hallie at a “Meet The Writer-in-Residence” event at the Library on September 27th at 7:00 p.m.
