LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK EVENT: Bevan Atkinson, Author of The Hierophant Card and The Fool Card: A Tarot Mystery
How can you determine if someone is telling the truth? Did Thalia Thalassos tried to kill her cheating husband, despite her denials? Why is nurse Bryce Gilbertson giving a false name to visitors as he roams hospital hallways with a deadly syringe in his pocket?
In this sixth Tarot Mystery, Xana Bard must use her tarot-trained intuition to unravel the truth from its nest of lies, and along the way learn more about golf tournaments and long-distance horse races than she, or anyone else, cares to know.
Bevan Atkinson has been a writer since receiving the Prose Award at Winchester-Thurston School in Pittsburgh, PA.
She wrote business documents of all kinds in corporate environments (Pacific Bell, The Bank of California, MHI Global, etc.), and was the Director of Retail Training for Apple Computer, designing and developing the training for the most successful retail launch in history.
Ms. Atkinson is a long-time tarot reader, and after venturing briefly into fiction writing with a children’s book, and then an original screenplay, she began The Tarot Mystery series in 2005 with The Fool Card.
Her aim is to complete a 22-book series based on the Major Arcana of the tarot, doing for the tarot what Sue Grafton did for the alphabet. As an homage to Ms. Grafton, in the series one of Xana Bard’s dogs is named Kinsey.
