Meet the Author: Ron Franscell

Bestselling author Ron Franscell will visit Patchouli Joe's on November 16 from 4:00-6:00PM. He will discuss his latest book, Alice & Gerald: A Homicidal Love Story, as well as his other true crime books and the research he does for them. Following the discussion, Ron will be available to sign copies of his books.

Ron Franscell is the acclaimed author of 17 books and recognized as one of America’s most respected narrative nonfiction writers. Although he has covered war and natural disasters abroad as a journalist, his newest true crime is Alice & Gerald: A Homicidal Love Story, about two cold-blooded husband-and-wife killers and the frustrating 40-year struggle to bring them to justice. His international bestseller The Darkest Night (2008) explored a shocking 1973 crime that splashed him as a child. And his debut book Angel Fire—a USA Today bestselling literary novel about two brothers’ necessary relationship and the wounds of war—was listed by the San Francisco Chronicle among the 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century West.

Copies of Alice & Gerald will be available at Patchouli Joe's or you can order in advance and ask Ron to sign your favorite page.
