Join us for this wonderful event as Marcia Berneger and Patty Bialak — two amazing authors — share info on their new books and discuss the inspiration for their writing.

MARCIA BERNEGER is a retired teacher who taught elementary school children for over three decades. She has worked mainly with first and second graders. Many of the characters in her stories are modeled after students she’s taught. She has written about fidgety students, childhood worries, and even mysteries. Fractured fairy tales and nursery rhymes are favorite themes and some of her longer stories even combine elements for rollicking mystery-adventures into worlds populated by the likes of Miss Diddle, Miss Muffet and even the Big Bad Wolf. Watch out for that hairy spider!

PATTY BIALIK is a retired CPA who specialized in forensic accounting for over forty years. She has a BS degree in Business from CSU Northridge and studied Spanish at the University of Madrid Following the adage, write what you know, she created her series of mystery thrillers by cultivating her real-life experience with financial crimes and populating them with fictitious characters inspired by years of colorful clients. While the murders and international intrigue are imaginary, her years of world travel allow her to bring foreign backdrops alive with vivid descriptions and accurate portrayals. Enjoying life with her geriatric cat, surrounded by friends, teaching yoga, and singing in various choirs, Patty has found the perfect balance for creativity, travel, relaxation, and fulfillment.
