‘Whoa, Nellie!’ Julie Weston to Spill Beans on Mystery Novel

 Julie Weston, an award-winning local author, will read from her newest book Moonscape at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 at the Hailey Public Library. She will also talk about Craters of the Moon National Monument and Ketchum’s Guyer Hot Springs in the 1920s.

 Accompanying her talk will be historic maps and her husband Gerry Morrison’s photographs.

Moonscape, the third in a series of mysteries written by Weston, is set in the 1920s at Craters of the Moon National Monument area.  Photographer Nellie Burns and her dog, Moonshine, leap into trouble searching for three people missing in the harsh, unexplored volcanic landscape.

 Nellie, Basque Sheriff Azgo and others search amidst rumors of a religious cult.  Caves and spatter cones, secrets and lies, and consuming greed endanger all. And Nell faces a murder attempt alone in this remote and almost inaccessible landscape.

 “Craters of the Moon is a strange and enigmatic region even today. The perfect place for a who-done-it mystery,” stated library director LeAnn Gelskey. “Julie has written a fun page turner and we’re delighted to host a popular local author reading her new book.”

 Weston grew up in Idaho and practiced law for many years in Seattle. Her debut mystery, Moonshadows, was a finalist in the May Sarton Literary Award.  Basque Moon, her second mystery, won the 2017 WILLA Literary Award in Historical Fiction.  Weston and her husband live in Hailey, Idaho, where they ski, write, photograph and enjoy the outdoors.
