TURNING HISTORY INTO MYSTERY-
Mark de Castrique’s latest mystery novel, A Murder in Passing, is set against the backdrop of three historic events: a freed-slave commune in the mountains of western NC, the Appalachian travels of renowned photographer Doris Ulmann, and the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court ruling Loving v. Virginia that overturned the NC ban on interracial marriage. Mark will share how he turns history into mystery as he discusses his two critically-acclaimed mystery series.
Mark is the author of thirteen novels: five set in the fictional NC mountain town of Gainesboro, four set in Asheville, one in WashingtonD.C., one science thriller in Raleigh in the year 2030, and two mysteries written for Young Adults and set in the Charlotte region.
His novels have received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Booklist. The CHICAGO TRIBUNE wrote, “As important and as impressive as the author’s narrative skills are the subtle ways he captures the geography – both physical and human – of a unique part of the American South.”
Mark and his wife Linda live in Charlotte, NC.
