  Author Program - The Chloe Ellefson Mysteries - Waupun Public Library - Waupun WI

Photo of Waupun Public Library in Waupun Wisconsin.Meet Kathleen Ernst, bestselling author of the award-winning Wisconsin-based Chloe Ellefson mystery series written for adults and mature teens who enjoy traditional mysteries without explicit sex, violence, or gore. 

Kathleen's lively, richly-illustrated program will take readers 'behind the scenes' to reveal the people, places, and the past that inspired her to write the now nine books featuring museum curator (and reluctant sleuth) Chloe Ellefson and her police officer boyfriend Roelke McKenna.

Her presentation will include details about her newest Chloe mystery, The Lacemaker's Secret, which is set in the Kingdom of Belgium, the Belgian-American communities of southern Door County, and at Green Bay's Heritage Hill State Historical Park.

Kathleen will also share how her years working at Old World Wisconsin influenced her Chloe character, how her research into police work helped shape Roelke, and how she researches and writes their stories.

And Kathleen will reveal details about her tenth Chloe mystery, which comes out this September.

This hour-long program starts at 6:30 PM, Friday, April 9th. Admission is free and open to the public, thanks to the Friends of Waupun Library. Afterwards Kathleen will answer questions, give away door prizes, and sign her books (copies of which will be available for purchase).

Kathleen is a frequent guest on Wisconsin Public Radio's popular The Larry Meiller Show discussing her Chloe books, one of which was read by Jim Fleming on WPR's long-running Chapter A Day program.

In addition to mysteries, Kathleen writes historical fiction and non-fiction for adults and young readers. Her work has earned numerous honors, including an Emmy for educational television, six Council for Wisconsin Writers book awards, the 2018 Sterling North Legacy Award for Excellence in Children's Literature, and nominations for an Edgar Allan Poe and multiple Agatha Christie mystery awards.

To date readers have purchased over 1.75 million audio, ebook, and printed copies of Kathleen's 37 published books.
