For many years, Cindy Wynn was a familiar face on stages around the Valley. More recently, she's turned to writing, without leaving her theatrical background behind: Under the name Cindy Brown, she's authored five mystery novels featuring the wacky actress-sleuth Ivy Meadows, starting with Macdeath in 2015 and continuing with The Sound of Murder, Oliver Twisted, and Ivy Get Your Gun.

Now living in Portland, Oregon, Brown will sign her most recent tome, The Phantom of Oz, on Tuesday, April 17 at 1 p.m. at the Orpheum Theatre, the setting for the tale. Proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of the Orpheum Theatre.

Valley author Stephanie Elliot’s debut novel, “Sad Perfect” hits shelves February 28, in the middle of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, which starts this Sunday, February 26. This timing is a happy accident, Elliot says, but it couldn’t be more fitting for the novel.

“Sad Perfect” follows 16-year-old Pea, who struggles to keep her eating disorder a secret from a new boyfriend. In the midst of her budding relationship, Pea's eating disorder, anxiety and depression take over and she watches as her life starts to spiral of control and a wide cast of characters come to her aid.
