Westport resident and mystery novelist, Liz Hilleren, will be at a Meet the Author event from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Westport Brewery to show copies of her four completed books, which are available on Amazon.com in paperback and as e-books.
While preparing for retirement with her husband from their home of 23 years in Tacoma to a condo at the Westport Marina two years ago, Hilleren says that she started making up stories in her head to relieve stress and help her fall asleep.
“When my stories got too complex to recall all the details, I followed a friend’s advice and started writing them down,” said Hilleren.
Soon thereafter, she had the start of her first book.
The natural beauty and romance of Napa Valley is the setting for her first two works, “Slow Revenge” and “Tristan.”
Her third and fourth books, “Zero Duval” and “Sharkey’s Key West” are set in another favorite vacation place — Florida.
Liz is working on another sequel in her Key West series.
Westport Brewery is located at 118 W. Pacific Ave. in Westport. Snacks will be served.
