JOURNALIST/PUBLICIST TALKS ON 2ND MYSTERY 3:00 PM SUNDAY, JULY 7, AT PAGE ONE

Mary Oertel-Kirschner, former journalist and publicist, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, July 7, to talk about and sign her second mystery novel, "Death of the Head: A Santa Fe Mystery with Blanche Harriman."

The book is described as such: "Blanche Harriman, with her red pixie haircut and an eye for fashion, defies the conventional image of a 78-year-old as she becomes involved in affairs surrounding the murder of the headmistress at an elite girls' school in Santa Fe. She's managing a contentious search for a new head when questions arise about the school's valuable art collection. Blanche forges ahead fearlessly despite the warnings from Detective Enrique Otero of the Santa Fe Police Department who cautions her about taking unnecessary risks. She enlists help from classy Esther Zamora, a friend knowledgeable about New Mexico art. Frank Sanders, retired banker, helps soothe her frazzled nerves with an outing to Tent Rocks, a magical landscape that will leave readers Googling for directions. 'Death of The Head' has loads of local color, Santa Fe style, and mouthwatering New Mexico cuisine."

Oertel-Kirschner is a fiction writer, poet, and painter. In her previous wage-earning life, she worked as a journalist, publicist and technical writer. She is married with one son and three stepchildren. She has lived in New Mexico for 52 years. "Never Too Old," her first Blanche Harriman mystery, was published in 2017 by ABQ Press - which was started by mystery author Judith Van Gieson.

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 Oertel-Kirschner event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
