It took Michael Meeske more than 40 years to achieve his goal of getting an agent and a New York publishing contract, but he succeeded.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Michael Meeske writes across genres, including romance, mystery, suspense, horror, gothic fiction and historical fiction.
Michael’s first novel for Kensington Books, The Magdalen Girls, is slated for publication in the U.S. and UK in March 2017. The novel, set in 1962 Dublin, deals with the dark history of the Magdalen laundries, a system of institutionalized servitude formerly sanctioned by the Catholic Church. It will appear in trade paperback, e-book and in audio and large print.
He recently signed a contract with Cleis Press for two books in his Cody Harper mystery series, The Combat Zone and An Absent God. These books are scheduled for publication beginning in January 2017.
