Chloe Winston at Barnes & Noble

DSCN5939Writers Forum member Chloe Winston will be signing books at Barnes & Noble today in Redding at 1:00. Chloe’s third book, China Caper, has been released, and copies will be available for purchase, as well as her first two books, Argentine Assignment and Belize Barter.

Chloe uses her extensive travel experience as background for her Briana Fraser adventures. Much as Louis L’Amour used to do with his Westerns, if Chloe writes about a place in her books, you can be pretty sure that she’s actually been to that place in real life. Her descriptions reflect that sort of detail. Chloe loves to weave real world events into her novels, as well, which adds to the flavor of authenticity. For instance, in Argentine Assignment, Chloe weaves the truth of los desaparecidos, people who simply disappeared during that country’s political upheaval. Chloe’s second book, Belize Barter, opens with the death of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

If you enjoy international thrillers, come and sample Chloe Winston’s tales!

See you at Barnes & Noble.
