The latest “Airtime With an Author” event welcomed New York Times best-selling author Jenn McKinlay to the patio at Appaloosa Library on Tuesday, November 2.
McKinlay is the author of 49 books, specializing in mystery and romance novels. She is based in Phoenix.
She previously worked part time at Phoenix Public Library while pursuing her dream of becoming an author, and met her husband while both were library employees.
McKinlay discussed how she got started as an author, providing funny stories about her experiences working with editors. She explained ongoing challenges in the writing industry, and documented key family events that coincided with career milestones.
The event offered limited capacity, was outside, and practiced social distancing to ensure member safety. McKinlay also signed copies of her books.
“Airtime With an Author” events are one of the many perks of becoming a Friends member, and are held several times per year.
