Come to the Sun Prairie Public Library for an engaging evening with Patricia Skalka, Wisconsin’s ‘Mistress of Mystery,’ and author of the best-selling Dave Cubiak series, which pits a former troubled Chicago cop against a roster of clever killers on the Door County Peninsula.

Skalka turned to fiction following a successful career in nonfiction, including stints as a staff writer for Reader’s Digest, freelancer, ghost writer, writing instructor, and book reviewer.

Skalka is the author of Death Stalks Door County, Death at Gills Rock, Death in Cold Water, and Death Rides the Ferry, the first four books in the popular Dave Cubiak Door County Mystery series.

Skalka is president of the Sisters in Crime Chicagoland Chapter and a member of several professional organizations, including The Authors Guild of America, Mystery Writers of America, and Society of Midland Authors. Time will be allotted for Q&A, with a book sale / signing to follow.
