Lunch and Learn with Well-Known Mystery Author, Tom Corcoran, on Monday

Join Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center for a literary treat, as they present their Famous Author Lecture & Lunch series. On Monday, March 9th, you are invited to meet Tom Corcoran, listen to a lecture, and enjoy a delicious catered lunch!

Tom Corcoran is the author of nine Key West-based mysteries and numerous books of non-fiction. In Tom’s latest novel, “Guava Moon Revenge,” photographer Alex Rutledge and his partner, Beth Watkins, a Key West police detective, are called home from a long-needed vacation in Grand Cayman. Someone has killed Beth’s houseguest, and after Alex and Beth return, several events suggest that they may be in grave danger as well.

The book just prior to “Guava Moon Revenge” was “Crime Almost Pays,” a spin-off from Tom’s Alex Rutledge Series. It features Dubbie Tanner and Wiley Fecko, characters introduced in earlier books, who recently formed their own private-eye company, Southernmost Aristocratic Investigations. Tanner and Fecko also play supporting roles in “Guava Moon Revenge” and an earlier Corcoran novel, “The Quick Adios (Times Six).”

Tom has lived in Florida for over 40 years, with ten of those years in Key West and four years on Cudjoe Key. He has been a bartender, a U.S. Navy officer, a professional photographer, a screenwriter, and an automotive magazine editor. His photos appeared on seven Jimmy Buffett album covers, and his portraits of Thomas McGuane, Winston Groom, Les Standiford, and James W. Hall have appeared on numerous book dust jackets. Over 160 of Tom’s photos of the 1970s and 1980s were collected in 2008’s award-winning book, “Key West in Black and White.” Now, he writes a book you’ll love to read!
