My name is Harvey Church and 2017 is going to be an amazing year if you enjoy mystery-based novels with an indie bent.
from Kirkus Reviews: “…puerile…”
Here is my “About Me” ramble. Clearly, Kirkus was on point when they reviewed my novel:
Harvey Church wrote Alibi Aficionado, his debut novel. His background is in finance, which why he finds himself writing about the people and ridiculousness (sometimes the same thing) of that field.
For fun, Harv likes to practice street magic and spends hours engineering tricks to wow his audiences. He is also an avid hockey fan (Go Leafs Go) and returned the sport himself after a twenty-five year hiatus as a way to reconnect with the demons of his youth. In fact, as he writes this, he is recovering from that morning’s hockey game and can barely raise his arms…at all.
Also for fun, Harv lives in a four-bedroom home in Canada. He has a wife (incredible) and two kids (depends on the day, but they’re normally incredible too). His favorite color is blue, but he drives a black car because he read somewhere, back in the 90’s, that radar detectors have a tough time seeing them. Most likely, that flaw in radar technology has been fixed, but being superstitious, Harv sticks to black.
He obviously enjoys writing about himself in the third person and hears his words in the voice of the narrator from The Royal Tennenbaums. Especially when he writes: He also enjoys butter tarts, Pop Tarts and, well, regular tarts (in that order) because they make life fun. Yes, Harv is puerile.
He also holds grudges (hence the excessive puerile comments).
Connect with Harv by searching Harvey Church Mysteries on Facebook and Instagram, and on the streets of Chicago, Toronto, Montreal or the Lido deck of a Princess Cruise ship, and ask to see a magic trick!
