Events Carol Pouliot

Here’s my current schedule. I’ll keep adding dates, so check back. I hope you’ll be able to attend an event – whether in-person or online. I’d love to meet you.
If you’re a venue looking to schedule an event or a book club interested in talking about the Blackwell and Watson Time-Travel Mysteries and/or about writing, please see the CONTACT page.




A great mystery is about more than a puzzling crime. It’s the sleuths and their sidekicks who make us fall in love with a book. What started out as the name of our panel has turned into our identity. SLEUTHS AND SIDEKICKS aka mystery writers Jen Collins Moore, Tina deBellegardeLida Sideris, and I will be hitting the virtual road again later this year with a new, updated program - a free, interactive, virtual conversation about our detectives, their partners in crime, writing, and more. Check EVENTS (below) for dates, times, and links. We can't wait to see you again!

Keep up with Steven and Olivia on my Facebook Author Page where I'm posting photos from the books. See what Olivia's 1934 clothes look like. Get a look at Steven's kitchen. Check out Gray Wilson's new Packard. You'll also find specific photos from the individual books, in particular some of the locations.

I'm super excited to tell you that we've launched our SLEUTHS AND SIDEKICKS website!!! We have lots of fun things to share with you and lots more in the works. Check it out. Sign up for our emails and be the first to get in on upcoming events. AND...sign up to win a BOOK BUNDLE. We'll be raffling off a copy of the latest book from each of us: Tina deBellegardeJen Collins Moore, Lida Sideris, and me.
