The Helen C. Escott Book Club: A Novel Idea

November Book Signngs:

It's time for Christmas shopping and books make great gifts. If you enjoy the thrill of the chase, not knowing who the murderer is & being shocked at the conclusion, you need to read my Operation Series.

My next signing is at Chapters Kenmount Rd this Friday from 3:30-5:30.

Let's talk about the Art of Murder.

The Art of Murder - How to Write Crime Thrillers This is a remarkably interesting and fun class that will encourage students to

think about writing in a whole new way. From planning the murder, to making it believable, to solving the crime.

I take students on a journey through writing that they will never forget.

This one-hour course is available to schools and libraries. Contact me at

Operation Masonic/ Ecclesiastical Circle Murder and Mystery Walking Tour

Take a fascinating mystery and history walking tour in the St. John’s Ecclesiastical District National Historic Site of Canada featured in my bestselling crime thriller, Operation Masonic (Flanker Press). This tour takes you to the scene of a murder and explores actual sites discussed in this gripping novel. It is a unique experience that unveils some of the most exciting mysteries in Newfoundland and Labrador’s history: specifically, the history of freemasonry.

The tour begins in the foyer of the Basilica of St. John the Baptist. We then head out on an hour-and-a-half walking tour of some of the oldest streets in St. John’s where we go hunting for Masonic symbols. You will receive expert insight into the meaning of the cryptic symbols hidden on the façades and some interiors of historic structures and churches, such as Gower Street United and St. Andrew's Presbyterian (The Kirk), that make up the Ecclesiastical district. The tour then finishes at the Sergeants’ Memorial in Veteran’s Square where Operation Masonic famously ends. Group and school rates are available. This walking tour includes stairs and hills, so comfortable shoes are required.
