Author, John Pearce
Author John Pearce walked us through the stories of each of his mysteries, Treasure of Saint-Lazare, its sequel, Last Stop: Paris, and his latest book, a "stand alone," Finding Pegasus. It's the third in the "Eddie Grant" series, in which his protagonist, and Eddie's side-kick, Aurélie, deal with "the chaotic state of Eastern European politics, where long-term democracies now live in fear of Russia and of their own leaders."
     John's books always involve Paris in some way, likely a result of his own affection for the City of Light, but each is set in other parts of the world: The Treasure of Saint-Lazare is set in Paris and Sarasota, Florida; Last Stop: Paris is set in Paris, Miami, Munich, and several parts of Eastern Europe and Finding Pegasus opens in Miami and rapidly moves to Paris, then to Budapest. Take a tour of the world along with Eddie Grant when you read John's books.
     John is also the author of a regular blog, "Part-Time Parisian," to which you can subscribe by emailing John at jmp@parttimeparisian.com. He does interviews for his blog from time to time, and I was lucky to be among them — from September 4, 2014 — which just happened to be my 20th anniversary date living in France! Visit parttimeparisian.com/american-queen-paris-real-estate/ to see and hear the 8-minute the interview in which he calls me "The American Queen of Paris Real Estate!" (I get a big laugh out of this overzealous title, but I loved doing the interview!)
     Thanks to John for a very enjoyable afternoon with about 50 attendees from all over the globe. His books are a great read, so I encourage you to get your copies for perfect summer reading!
