Mystery authors, and husband and wife, Ann I. Goldfarb and James E. Clapp, writing as J.C. Eaton, will be at Barnes & Noble, 7685 W. Bell Road in Peoria, 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday, April 6 to sign copies of their latest release in the Wine Trail Mysteries, “Pinot Red or Dead?” (Kensington Publishing)

“When reluctant sleuth and winery owner, Norrie Ellington, discovers the body of her wine distributor in a ditch that separates her winery from her neighbor’s, she has to act fast or risk losing the tourists who have flocked to the area,” a news release states of the plot.

In addition to “Pinot Red or Dead?,” the authors will be signing books from their Sophie Kimball Mysteries, set in Sun City West and surrounding cities.

New York native Ms. Goldfarb spent most of her life in education, first as a classroom teacher and later as a middle school principal and professional staff developer. Writing as J. C. Eaton, along with her husband, Mr. Clapp, she has authored the Sophie Kimball Mysteries (Kensington). In addition, she has nine published young adult time travel mysteries under her own name.

When Mr. Clapp retired as the tasting room manager for a large upstate New York winery, he co-authored mysteries with his wife. “Booked 4 Murder” (Kensington) was his first novel. Non-fiction in the form of informational brochures and workshop materials treating the winery industry were his forte along with an extensive background and experience in construction that started with his service in the U.S. Navy and included vocational school classroom teaching.
