Happy New Year.
My guests for January are Joseph Haggerty Sr and Larry K. and Lorna Collins.
Lorna and Larry were both on the team that built the Universal Studios Japan theme park in Osaka. Larry was a Project Engineer, responsible for the Jurassic Park, JAWS and WaterWorld attractions. Lorna was the Document Control Supervisor in the Osaka field office.
Their memoir of that experience, 31 Months in Japan: The Building of a Theme Park was a 2006 EPPIE finalist.
Their cozy mysteries are, Murder They Wrote and Murder in Paradise (both finalist for the EPIC eBook Award for best mystery).
Jospeh Haggery Sr. is a retired Vice Detective with DC Metropolitan Police Department. He specialized in investigating the sexual exploitation of women and children.
His goal was to arrest child predators and rescue children used and abused by pimps. His book, "Shame: The Story of a Pimp," is available on line at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders, or can be ordered from Joe.
What a way to start the new year. I hope you can join us.
