Today we welcome Leonard Krishtalka of Lawrence to D-2 and to the Kansas Authors Club.
He shares this with us:
My novels are murder mysteries. Three of them involve science intrigues––paleontology, anthropology, archeology––wrapped inside human ones. The Bone Field (June 2019), Death Spoke (November 2019), and The Camel Driver (November 2020) feature private investigator Harry Przewalski (pronounced Je-vahl-skey), who excavates the dirty underbelly of people's lives, unearthing love, loss, betrayals, treachery, fraud and murder buried beneath the science of petrified shards, skin and bones.
My fourth novel, The Body on the Bed (September, 2021), is historical fiction about an alleged murder and sensational trial in 1871 in Lawrence, Kansas amid the social upheaval after the Civil War. Anamcara Press is my publisher. I'm currently working on the fourth novel in the Harry Przewalski series, Native Blood.
My career includes paleontological research and worldwide expeditions at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, PA, and science administration at the Biodiversity Institute & Natural History Museum at KU.
I have an author’s presentation of The Body on the Bed on Friday, Dec. 10, at 6:30p at the Watkins Museum, 1047 Massachusettes in Lawrence, open to the public, with food and drink. Please come if you can.
