Tucson Sisters in Crime 
Program for Saturday, May 20, 2023
Please join us at the NEW TIME,
12:30 PM to 2:00 PM 
at The Cascades, 201 N Jessica Avenue, Tucson,
or via Zoom.


Rob Osler writes the Hayden & Friends contemporary mystery series featuring a rainbow of “charming and diverse characters—both human and canine—[who] fill the pages of his delightfully humorous cozy.” His debut mystery novel, Devil’s Chew Toy, was a finalist for the 2023 Lefty Award for Best Debut Mystery Novel and the 2023 Agatha Best First Novel Award and was named Best Mystery of 2022 by Crime Reads, BOLO, Book Riot and PopSugar. His short story, Analogue, won the Mystery Writers of America/Edgar Awards 2022 Robert L Fish Memorial Award for the Best Short Story by a Debut Author.

Clearly, he understands how to write compelling, authentic characters who will make you laugh, cry, sympathize and remember. Rob will talk about his process for imagining and crafting believable people who never get in the way of a good story.

A native of Boise, Idaho, Rob graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA with a degree in Philosophy; years later, he earned his MBA at the University of Washington. He was copywriter and senior brand strategist at leading global agencies and corporations before turning to writing fiction. Leaving the Chicago cold and Seattle rain behind, Rob resides in California with his long-time partner and a tall, gray cat.
