Set in the Flat Tops wilderness of western Colorado and inspired by a female hunting guide Stevens met nearly two decades ago, the Allison Coil Mystery series draws upon hot topics from Colorado events. “Antler Dust” deals with poaching and animal rights activists. “Buried by the Roan” is centered around fracking. “Trapline” dives into for-profit prisons and immigration. “Lake of Fire” explores climate change and anti-government terrorist.  Three of the four books were named finalists for the Colorado Book Award and “Trapline” won the category in 2015.

Colorado mystery writer Mark Stevens will discuss his research, his writing and provide a preview of what is coming next.
