By Chris MacDonald, The Local News Columnist

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF.--Several of the country's top authors celebrated the opening of Mystery Ink Bookstore by autographing their acclaimed new books on July 10th & 11th at 7176 Edinger Ave. (south of Toys R Us in Huntington Beach's Goldenwest Plaza).

The award-winning writers included New York Times Bestseller Christopher Rice, "The Moonlit Earth;" International Bestseller Gregg Hurwitz, "They're Watching;" Eric Stone (co-editor), Lenore Carlson, Jack Maeby and Terri Nolan signed their latest LA Sisters in Crime Anthology, "Murder in La La Land;" Pulitzer Prize Nominee Craig MacDonald, "Gold Rush Glimpses III;" Radio Personality and Top Writer Barbara DeMarco Barrett, Martin J.Smith, Gary Phillips, Dan Duling and Patricia McFall signed their thriller, "Orange County Noir;" Sheila Lowe, "Last Writes," and Ken Kuhlken, "The Biggest Liar in Los Angeles."

Years ago, Mystery Ink, owned by the personable and very knowledgeable Debbie Mitsch, used to be a popular store for thrillers and their readers in Laguna Beach. Debbie decided to resurrect it in Huntington Beach.

The mystery bookstore makes the place a fun visit for readers and giftbuyers. Debbie is so nice and has gone out of her way to create a friendly, caring atmosphere that will make your visit enjoyable. I was so impressed with Debbie Mitsch's personal relationship with so many bestselling authors. They in turn said they'd do anything to help her store be a success.

Mystery Ink is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and on some Sundays for special events, such as the recent Author Signings. If you have any questions please call Debbie Mitsch at: (714) 960-4000. Her e-mail address is: .
