To sleep, perchance to...walk?
Kathleen Valenti, author of the Maggie O'Malley Mystery Series, joins Deschutes Public Library to talk about
her sleepwalking medical thriller, 39 WINKS, and to share her experiences on the path from her Agatha-
nominated debut to book number two.
A lifelong Bend resident and Mountain View High School graduate, Kathleen is an award-winning copywriter
who is well known in the Oregon advertising community. She has been writing for almost twenty years and
her works combine humor with suspense to craft page-turning mysteries. Kathleen graduated from the
University of Oregon with degrees in English and Psychology, both of which have come in handy on her
path with publication.
