Rocket-Scientist-Turned-Novelist Stephanie Osborn To Appear At Chattacon 40

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Stephanie Osborn will be again in the thick of things at Chattacon 40 at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, 1400 Market St.—but only on Saturday, Jan. 31 this year.   Ms.Osborn will be appearing in two seminars, as well as doing an author signing.

Schedule:

2:30 p.m. -  ”The Weather Out There Is Frightful: Solar and Space Weather,” based on Ms. Osborn’s  science ebook of the same name; solo presentation.
5 p.m. -  Author Signing
6 p.m. - Authors’ Panel: “Seriously? My Pajamas Offer Better Protection from Swords!”

Ms. Osborn's  “Displaced Detective” series, featuring a Sherlock Holmes who’s transported to this century through a wormhole is attracting the same fans who swoon over the BBC “Sherlock” series, as well as the “Elementary” modern-Holmes series that is a hit for CBS.  

Ms. Osborn will sign pre-purchased copies of her many books, including the most recent in the “Displaced Detective” series: The Case of the Cosmological Killer: A Case of Spontaneous Combustion.

The ebook omnibus of the series, The Case of the Displaced Detective Omnibus, was published by Twilight Times Books in October 2014 and collects the first four books of the series, The Case of the Displaced Detective: The Arrival, The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed, The Case of the Cosmological Killer: The Rendlesham Incident, and The Case of the Cosmological Killer: A Case of Spontaneous Combustion, into one electronic book. This new release is available on Ms. Osborn's website, www.stephanie-osborn.com

In these novels, Ms. Osborn uses her more than 20 years of working in the civilian and military space programs to craft a story-line in which physicist Dr. Skye Chadwick accidentally brings the famous detective through a wormhole into the 21st century. 

Stephanie Osborn is available for interview on a variety of topics related to her writing and the series: Making the transition from space worker to author; the wonderful and wacky world of science fiction/fantasy conventions; her own fascination with Holmes and why she decided to create her own stories. PDFs and review copies of the books are available on request. Osborn is currently a resident of Huntsville, Alabama.
