The Ann B. McGowan Maine Writers Series and the Pittsfield Public Library are proud to present at evening with local Maine author Matt Cost. Matt is the highly acclaimed, award-winning author of the Mainely Mystery series. The first book, Mainely Power, was selected as the Maine Humanities Council Read ME Fiction Book of 2020. This was followed by Mainely Fear, Mainely Money, Mainely Angst, and Mainely Wicked. His Clay Wolfe/Port Essex Mysteries include Wolfe Trap, Mind Trap, Mouse Trap, and Cosmic Trap, and now, Pirate Trap.
Cost’s love of histories and mysteries is combined in the novel, Velma Gone Awry, book one in his new series featuring private eye, 8 Ballo, set in 1920’s Brooklyn. The second book, City Gone Askew, will publish in August of 2024.
Matt will share the process of writing a book and how books evolve by discussing Pirate Trap, which is set here in Maine. Expect a lively session!
Cost lives in Brunswick, Maine, with his wife, Harper. There are four grown children: Brittany, Pearson, Miranda, and Ryan. A chocolate Lab and a basset hound round out the mix. He now spends his days at the computer, writing.
