Small Business Saturday - Guest Booksellers

William Dylan Powell and S.C. Perkins will be here from 1-3 as guest booksellers!

William Dylan Powell writes dark, and often funny, mystery fiction set in Texas. He's the author or co-author of a half-dozen books, and winner of awards from the Robert L. Fish Memorial Award Fund and the Mystery Writers of America.

Powell's work has been featured in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Needle: A Magazine of Noir, Pulp Modern, The Flash Fiction Offensive, Dirty Noir, Beat to a Pulp and a host of fine truck stop bathroom walls across the Texas badlands. When not writing fiction, he is the creative director at a Houston ad agency. 

S.C. Perkins is a fifth-generation Texan who grew up hearing fascinating stories of her ancestry and eating lots of great Tex-Mex, both of which inspired the plot of her debut mystery novel. Murder Once Removed (available March 2019) was the winner of the 2017 Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Mystery competition. She resides in Houston and, when she’s not writing or working at her day job, she’s likely outside in the sun, on the beach, or riding horses. Visit her website at or follow her on Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads, and Facebook @SCPerkinsWriter.
