East Bend: Know Trails - Treacherous Trails to Solving A Mystery

Thursday, November 16, 2017
6:00 PM to 7:00 PM
On the trail of mystery with debut novelist Kathleen Valenti.

Valenti will read excerpts from her book, "Protocol," discuss the character's journey, and shares her path from concept to research to publication.
Protocol is about freshly minted college graduate Maggie O'Malley, who embarks on a career fueled by professional ambition and a desire to escape the past. As a pharmaceutical researcher, she's determined to save lives from the shelter of her lab. But on her very first day, she's pulled into a world of uncertainty. Reminders appear on her phone for meetings she's never scheduled with people she's never met. People who end up dead.

Follow Maggie's road from mysterious happenings to dramatic discoveries, as well as Kathleen's writing journey.

Kathleen Valenti is a longtime Bend resident who cut her writing teeth in the ad world working as a nationally award-winning copywriter for local agencies. Her latest writing endeavors include the launch of the Maggie O'Malley Mystery Series, which begins with Protocol, published by Henery Press. When Kathleen isn't writing page-turning mysteries that combine humor and suspense, she can be found reading, spending time with her children, and pretending to enjoy running.
