Cathy Pickens presents Charlotte True Crime Stories

Murder, fraud, the missing, the wrongly accused, crusading mothers, a serial killer who broke all the rules, motorcycle gangs … and Bigfoot. With a mystery novelist’s ear for a good tale, Cathy Pickens presents more than a century of Charlotte’s headline stories. Join us at Park Road Books for a talk and signing of Charlotte True Crime Stories.

Author Bio: 

Publishers Weekly called Cathy’s first mystery Southern Fried, a St. Martin’s Malice Domestic Award winner, an “assured debut, a cozy with some sharp edges.” In addition to writing five books in that series, she is true crime columnist for Mystery Readers Journal. Her latest book is Charlotte (NC) True Crime Stories (London & Charleston: History Press, 2019). 

Cathy served as president of national Sisters in Crime, secretary of Mystery Writers of America, and a founding member and president of the Mecklenburg Forensic Medicine Program (an evidence collection/preservation training collaborative). A lawyer and former college professor at  Queens University of Charlotte, she offers workshops on developing the creative process, coaches and teaches new writers through Charlotte Lit, and works with former inmates on starting their own businesses and writing their own stories.
