Launch party June 6 at Mysterious Galaxy for second in Carmel Valley author’s mystery series


The launch party for Carmel Valley author Kathy Krevat’s “Truffled to Death,” the second in her Chocolate Covered Mystery series, will be at noon Saturday, June 6, at Mysterious Galaxy, 5943 Balboa Ave., Suite 100, San Diego.

Published under her pen name of Kathy Aarons, “Truffled to Death” (Berkley Prime Crime) will be available anywhere books are sold starting this week.

The book features chocolatier Michelle Serrano and bookstore owner Erica Russell as they become embroiled in a web of theft, international art trafficking, and murder.

“Death Is Like a Box of Chocolates,” the first book in the series, was a national best seller and was named a Best Book of 2014 by the San Diego Union Tribune.

Krevat has been an advocate for arts in education in the Carmel Valley community since her family moved here in 1998. At Carmel Creek and Solana Pacific Elementary Schools, she’s been PTA president, Reflections Arts chair, school foundation fundraiser, student newsletter editor, and more. She’s handled publicity and created costumes for J*Company and the Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theater programs, and assisted with the CCA Writers Conference. She recently joined the board of Playwrights Project.
