Bonnar Spring will sign and discuss Toward the Light (Oceanview; $26.95).
Bonnar Spring writes sharp and stylish mystery-suspense novels with an international flavor. A world-traveler, she hitchhiked across Europe at sixteen and joined the Peace Corps after college. Bonnar currently teaches ESL at a community college. She’d do it for free, but is pleased that they pay her—and the long school vacations mean leisurely travels. Bonnar divides her time between tiny houses on a New Hampshire salt marsh and by the Sea of Abaco.
Bonnar learned to read in kindergarten and never stopped. The restrictive policy of her town library (What? Only fourteen books per card?) led her to become omnivorous—her brothers’ science fiction and adventure, her mother’s classics, her father’s, well, those books hidden behind the hardcovers on the top shelf.
