April 8 – 14, 2018 is National Library Week. The information and techno age notwithstanding, libraries still perform an essential function in the education and leisure time of both children and adults, and they are very important to us authors as well.

To celebrate, I felt like giving a gift to someone–anyone! A clever item caught my eye a couple of weeks ago while reading the New York Review Of Books. I couldn’t resist it and I’m pretty sure a lot of book lovers won’t be able to either.


The End Bookend: stop the apocalypse. Beautifully wrapped just for you


An unique item: The End Bookend!

This nifty gift can easily be yours if you’re the first one to answer this simple question:

In the Inspector Darko Dawson series, what is the correct medical name for the heart condition Darko’s son Hosiah has?

Send your answer to kweiquartey@gmail.com. First one in my inbox by timestamp wins!

Good luck!

Correct, but I was looking for the specific name Ventricular Septal Defect

I know I am certainly too late to enter this contest but I hope it’s acceptable to simply stop in and share how much I love your books. I am returning in 2019 to Kenya and Tanzania and am now so interested in seeing Ghana as well. I am just finishing your second book and hope that you are busy writing as I don’t want this wonderful series to end.

Hi, Lynne

Thanks so much. I’ve completed the 6th novel, although it is a standalone with my new protagonist, Mabel Safo, a young, Ghanaian PI in Accra!
