Hello from my hilltop in northern New England! March didn’t go out like a lamb but the snow’s melting and the maple taps are running. I’m writing (always) and preparing for a return trip to the Netherlands and Ireland in late April and most of May.

In June, I’m off to Portland for this year’s Maine Crime Wave conference on the 9th and 10th. I’ll be receiving their 2023 CrimeMaster award and couldn’t be more thrilled. Maine, while beautiful anytime of year, is spectacular in June.

Have a look around my site and be sure to sign up for my soon-to-be-revamped newsletter while you’re here.

Thanks, and, again, welcome,



Maine Crime Writers will award Carla this year’s CrimeMaster Award at their popular annual Maine Crime Wave conference in Portland on  June 9 and 10. She will talk about her long and accomplished career. Click on the link for more details!

About Carla…

Carla Neggers is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than 75 novels. Her books have been translated into dozens of languages and sold in over 35 countries. Her writing has been called “smart and satisfying” (Kirkus), “extraordinarily memorable” (RT Book Reviews) and “a breathtaking reading experience” (Providence Journal), and she has been praised for her “unerring knack for creating compelling, sympathetic characters and vivid, realistic settings” (Library Journal).

An avid, relatively new runner, Carla has completed six half marathons, including the picturesque Dingle Half Marathon in Ireland.
