June 7, 2010–Laurel, Maryland–Printers Row brings out all kinds of authors for their Lit Fest and this year, they are fortunate enough to have rising Minnesota star Beth Solheim (AT WITT’S END) attending the festival with her publisher. Echelon Press is pleased to introduce the windy city to this debut author whose Sadie Witt Mystery series is gathering praise across the country. Readers can meet Beth Solheim and find out what the buzz is all about at Booth “FF” at the festival in Chicago, IL June 12-13, 2010. Ms. Solheim will be signing copies of her debut hit throughout the festival. You can find more information on Printers Row online or contact the Chicago Tribune.
Like the main character in her Sadie Witt mystery series, Beth Solheim was born with a healthy dose of imagination and a hankering to solve a puzzle. She learned her reverence for reading from her mother, who was never without a book in her hand. By day, Beth works in Human Resources. By night she morphs into a writer who frequents lake resorts and mortuaries and hosts a ghost or two in her humorous paranormal mysteries.
Raised and still living in Northern Minnesota, she resides in lake country with her husband and a menagerie of wildlife critters. She and her husband are blessed with two grown children and two grandsons.
“Beth Solheim’s characters are destined to join the highly acclaimed ranks of others like Stephanie Plum, Sookie Stackhouse, and Aunt Dimity. Solheim has a flair for the realistically outrageous. Sadie Witt will entertain for years to come,” says President and CEO of Echelon Press.
Things are really bustling at the Witt’s End resort in Northern Minnesota. Clients are vying for one of the few remaining rentals, except Cabin 14—thing is—no one gets out of Cabin 14 alive.
Sadie isn’t your typical sixty-four year old senior citizen. She has things she wants to do and shouldn’t be expected to solve a murder while trying to prevent an unscrupulous sheriff’s deputy from shutting down the lakeside resort she owns with her straight arrow sister. But that’s exactly what Sadie Witt must do. When five guests with hidden agendas arrive at Cabin 14, they’re stunned to learn that the flamboyant Sadie is their conduit to the hereafter.

Sellers (SECRETS TO DIE FOR), Joel Fox (LINCOLN’S HAND), Margot Justes (A HOTEL IN PARIS), Marc Vun Kannon (A WARRIOR MADE), Anne Carter (CAPE SEDUCTION), and Chicago favorites Luisa Buehler (THE INN KEEPER) and Nero Wolfe author Robert Goldsborough (A PRESIDENT IN PERIL).
