Diana Renn

Diana Renn, a Shorecrest graduate now living in Boston, will read from her first novel, Tokyo Heist, at an author event at Third Place Books on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 - Reading / Q-A / Book Signing / Japanese Snacks, Third Place Books, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, 7pm. 

When sixteen-year-old Violet agrees to spend the summer with her father, an up-and-coming artist in Seattle, she has no idea what she's walking into. Her father’s newest clients, the Yamada family, are the victims of a high-profile art robbery: van Gogh sketches have been stolen from their home, and, until they can produce the corresponding painting, everyone's lives are in danger -- including Violet's and her father's. 
Violet’s search for the missing van Gogh takes her from the Seattle Art Museum, to the yakuza-infested streets of Tokyo, to a secluded inn in Kyoto. As the mystery thickens, Violet’s not sure whom she can trust. But she knows one thing: she has to solve the mystery -- before it’s too late.

Renn, whose family still live in Lake Forest Park, has written textbooks for teaching English as a Second Language, but this is her first fiction work.

She will also be appearing on Friday, July 27 at a Group Book Signing / Q-A Panel at the Northgate Barnes and Noble, 401 NE Northgate Way #1100, Seattle. 6:30pm; and Saturday, July 28 at a Reading/Book Signing, Edmonds Bookshop,111 5th Avenue South, Edmonds at 12noon,
