Her most recent books include, Once Upon a Time There was a Girl: a Murder at Mobile Bay and Something to Write Home About: Memories from a Presidential Diarist.

Kearney’s interactive and information-packed workshop on March 17, sponsored by the Village Writers’ Club, will offer hands-on advice for writers about writers’ markets, queries, agents, publishers, marketing, alternative publishing venues, and more.
