Beverle Graves Myers


The path from our first imaginative glimmer to words on the printed page can offer many twists and turns. As the publishing industry becomes more complex and offers more options than ever before, a diverse group of Kentucky authors relate their personal journeys to publication. The panelists will also discuss the strong points and/or drawbacks of their particular publishing situations.


Beverle Graves Myers writes the Tito Amato mysteries set in dazzling, decadent 18th-century Venice. Cruel Music is her latest title, and The Iron Tongue of Midnight will be released in March 2008. Bev also writes short fiction set in a variety of times and places. Her stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, Futures, Woman’s World, and numerous anthologies. Bev has been nominated for the Derringer Award and the Kentucky Literary Award. A retired psychiatrist, Bev now writes full time from her home in Louisville, Kentucky.
