Local women's club host luncheon with mystery writer

The Lake Oswego Women’s Coalition will hold “Whodunit? Or Rather, How Did He Do It?”, a luncheon and program May 15 featuring former Lake Oswego Review reporter Dana Haynes, now an award-winning mystery novelist. The program will take place from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. at Oswego Lake Country Club.

Haynes just published his third thriller through St. Martin Press, and has won awards for his novels and screenplay adaptations of his work. His novel “Crashers” was published in 2010, winning the award for best mystery by a Northwest author. Shortly after, his screenplay adaptation of the same work was a semifinalist in a Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences competition.

The sequel, “Breaking Point,” was released in 2011, and in March of this year, he published his third thriller, “Ice Cold Kill.”  A fourth thriller is scheduled for 2014.  Haynes formerly wrote three mysteries under the pen name Conrad Haynes.

Haynes lives in Portland with novelist Katy King and their cat Glamour.

Anyone interested is invited to attend this luncheon and program. The cost is $19 for members, $21 for non-members and guests.
