Mountain Mail Reports

Author Steven F. Havill will do a talk and a book signing of his latest book, “Red, Green or Murder” at Datil’s Baldwin Cabin Public Library on Thursday, Aug. 12, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Havill’s popular hero, Posadas County’s former sheriff Bill Gastner and Under Sheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman once more solve a police procedural which takes place in a small town in Southwestern New Mexico. The Posadas County mysteries are very popular in Datil, an even smaller town in Southwestern New Mexico.
The next title in the Posadas series is “Double Prey”, to be released in January, 2011. “Race For the Dying”, a historical medical novel was released by St. Michael’s Press in 2009. It will be followed by a sequel, “Comes A Time For Burning”, scheduled for release in February, 2011.
Steven Havill has been writing since 1981 and full time since 2000 when he retired after 25 years of teaching secondary school in Grants and Ruidoso. He’s also worked as a reporter, editor and photographer on newspapers in New Mexico and New York.
Havill was raised in New York’s Finger Lakes region and moved to New Mexico in 1965. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of New Mexico. In 2005 he received an associate’s degree in Gunsmithing. He now lives in Raton with his wife of 41 years, Kathleen.
Refreshments (sandwiches, salad and brownies) will be served. Everyone is welcome. Baldwin Cabin Public Library is located on Forest Road 100 just off Highway 60, three miles west of Datil.
