Tuesday, July 28 - Bob Kidera
In 2010, Rober Kidera retired from a long and successful academic career, following an early fling in the motion picture industry.

He is a member of Southwest Writers, Sisters in Crime, and the International Thriller Writers.

Red Gold is his debut novel, the first installment in the McKenna Mystery series. He is currently working on its sequel, "Get Lost", with a third book to follow.
