DAMARISCOTTA — Skidompha Library plans to host two award-winning fiction authors at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, in its Porter Hall meeting room at 184 Main St., according to a news release from the library.

Maine writer Bruce Robert Coffin, author of the Portland-based Detective Byron mysteries, and Marni Graff, author of The Nora Tierney English Mysteries and The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries, will be interviewing each other.

Coffin will speak about how his 27 years in law enforcement add to the realistic feel of his series, and he will let the audience in on what’s next in store for Byron.

Graff is touring with The Evening’s Amethyst, her newest in the English mystery series, and will speak to the cold case aspect that is part of this book.

Coffin and Graff also write short stories in crime fiction.

Coffin is a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance. He regularly contributes to the blog Murder Books.

Graff is managing editor of Bridle Path Press, a member of the North Carolina Writers Network, and the International Association of Crime Writers, where she was a judge for last year’s Dashiell Hammett Award.
