Patricia Skalka, an author whose mystery novels take place in Door County, will visit Sturgeon Bay Friday to hold an author reading and discussion event. The event will be held at Novel Bay Booksellers, and is a chance for fans of the series to meet the author and ask questions about Skalka’s inspiration or methods. A native of the Chicago area, Skalka said she chose Door County as the location for her series because the diversity allows for a lot of material.

 

 

 

 

Skalka’s novels center on Sheriff Dave Cubiak, a former Chicago cop who solves various murders and mysteries in Door County while trying to overcome his own personal problems as well. She said Cubiak works as a protagonist because the reader can see him as more than just a character in a book.

 

 

 

 

Skalka said her books have been well-received by residents of Door County. After her visit to Sturgeon Bay, she will also visit Algoma on Saturday for a similar event. Skalka’s next book, the fifth in her series, is scheduled for a Spring 2019 release.
