This Santa Fe author celebrates the release of the third and final book in her urban fantasy series, Publish and Perish: Linnet Ellery 3.



Santa Fe author Phillipa Bornikova (Melinda Snodgrass) will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, May 19, to celebrate the release of the third and final book in her urban fantasy series, "Publish and Perish: Linnet Ellery 3."

Her second Linnet Ellery effort is described as such: "Linnet Ellery, a young attorney at a prestigious New York vampire law firm has proved she has extraordinary luck―and not just in the courtroom. She has walked unscathed through events that would kill a normal person. Linnet's elven ex-boyfriend is trapped in Fairyland, and Linnet will have to lead a raid into Fey to free him―alongside her boss, whom she is falling in love with. But a love affair between a vampire and a human is strictly forbidden, and any violation is punishable by death for both parties. As events unfold, Linnet determines the source of her mysterious power, and is dismayed to discover that she is the most dangerous person in the world to her vampire and werewolf friends. The more secrets and treachery she uncovers, the more Linnet realizes that a decision must be made: Can she be her true self, without sacrificing everyone she cares about?"

The second book in the Linnet Ellery series was published in 2013, so Bornikova (Snodgrass) is happy to see the third book of the trilogy finally released. Because of the delay from Tor Books, the previous two Linnet Ellery books have been reissued.

Snodgrass has been the story editor of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," a horse trainer, and an oil-company executive. Her other Linnet Ellery novels - written as Bornikova - are "This Case Is Gonna Kill Me" and "Box Office Poison." She has been assistant editor on the "Wild Cards" mosaic superhero anthology series since its beginning in the 1980s, has written screenplays for several TV series, and is the author of "The Edge" science fiction series. Currently, she continues to shepherd the effort to turn "Wild Cards" into a TV series or theatrical film. She splits her time between homes in Santa Fe and Los Angeles.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Bornikova (Snodgrass) event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit
