Alameda writers

Writer and Bay Farm Islander Steve Hockensmith is a busy guy. A prolific author, husband, father of two and some-time dog wrangler, Hockensmith published four books in the last year – no easy feat when you’re also holding down a nine-to-five day job.

This April, he’ll be undertaking an additional task: traveling to New York City as a finalist for a prestigious Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award, his second nomination since he was up for Best First Novel in 2007.

Beth Murray has lived and worked on the island of Alameda for most of the last decade. As a certified classical homeopath, she has practiced at Back to Life Wellness Center on Webster Street for several years and has also maintained a practice in Marin County.
