Across Crawford - Interview with author Carol Preflatish


Recently, I was interviewed for Across Crawford, a radio show on WBRO-FM, located in Crawford County, Indiana, where I grew up. The hosts of the show are Roger Moon and author, Lori Crecelius Roberts. Below are the links to the interview. Due to a technical problem, part of the interview from segment 1 is repeated in segment 2, and part of the interview in segment 3 is repeated in segment 4. Sorry for the repetition. Total play time is around 20 minutes.

I hope you enjoy it.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good: On August 6 at 1:30 pm, I'll be speaking at the Jeffersonville, Indiana Library about my Nathan Perry Mystery Series. I'll specifically be talking about the latest book in the series, Witch Hunt and the research I did for the book. I'll be available afterward for signing and will have the books available for $15.00 each. Seating is limited. You can register at under Events, then Calendar of Events. I hope to see you there.

The Bad: I attended the Imaginarium Convention last weekend and took a little tumble as soon as I got there Friday morning. My shoe caught on the carpet and down I went. Like a trooper, I stayed all day Friday, sitting on my panels and at my table. Afterward, I went to the ER. After 8 1/2 hours, they said nothing was broken, just a very badly bruised knee. Which brings me to:

The Ugly:

At least nothing was broken. It will just take some time to heal.
