CatTale's Books & Gifts is celebrating Mardi Gras with three Minnesota authors signing and talking about their books. Rosemary Heim, Wendy Rosnau and Jerry Mevissen will be at the downtown Brainerd store from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Romantic suspense author Heim will discuss "Memory Reload," a Harlequin Intrigue book. Heim grew up on a diary farm and lived in an English castle before settling in Minneapolis. The book follows an FBI agent looking to find some R&R on a Hawaiian beach; instead he finds a beautiful woman with a gun and no memory.
Rosnau, who recently signed a five-book deal with Silhouette, will be signing her latest release, the anthology "Stuck on You." Along with two other authors, she wrote a humorous story about Valentine's Day.
"I wasn't sure I could write something like that when they asked me," Rosnau said. "It's not my writing style. But the challenge turned out to be fun. A different twist from my usual writing."
Jerry Mevissen, author of the historical tome "The Nimrod Chronicles," rounds out the group.
In keeping with the Mardi Gras theme, CatTale's will offer palm reading, mediums, beads, Cajun and Zydeco music and more. Costumes are optional. The authors Web sites are www.wendyrosnau.com and www.rosemaryheim.com.
