Author Toby Speed will talk about her new murder mystery, Death Over Easy, at the University Bookstore on Wednesday, March 26, during Campus Life Time. Toby, who was a writer in Stony Brook’s Office of Communications for many years, will discuss the book’s Long Island setting and how she learned to fly an airplane as part of her research. The program will begin at 1 pm.
Besides mysteries, Toby Speed writes children’s books, short fiction and poetry. Her short story, “At the Corner of Night and Nowhere,” is included in the recent anthology, Moon Shot: Murder and Mayhem on the Edge of Space (Untreed Reads). Toby is also the author of seven children’s books, including Two Cool Cows, an American Bookseller Pick of the List and an IRA-CBC Children’s Choice Book, and Brave Potatoes, which was on both the Publishers Weekly and The New York Times children’s bestseller lists.
