Library Hosts Author Matt Coyle

Enjoy a special visit from Anthony Award-winning San Diego author Matt Coyle at 5 p.m., before the Mystery Book Club meets at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, July 27, 2016, in the Civic Center Library Foundation Room, at 330 North Coast Highway, Oceanside.


Mr. Coyle writes the Rick Cahill crime series.  His debut novel, Yesterday’s Echo, won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel, The San Diego Book Award for Best Mystery, the IBPA Ben Franklin Silver Award for Best New Voice in Fiction, and was a Macavity Finalist for Best First Novel. During the program Matt Coyle will talk about his experience of becoming a published author: getting an agent, signing with a publisher, publication date, marketing, and beyond. Coyle is a board member of the Southern California chapter of Mystery Writers of America. He is coming to speak directly to the audience — so you can ask him anything about the writing process!  Although he is a mystery writer, his advice will carry through to all genres.  


The author will sell and sign his books after the program. Following the program, please join us for a Mystery Book Club discussion of Memory Man, by David Baldacci.   For more information, please call 760-435-5600 or visit the website at
