A Lesson Plan for Murder
Author Richard L. Baldwin
Soon after the Newberry, MI, school board lays off a special education teacher and two others, its chairman dies of a much-anticipated heart attack. A gossipy old woman's nosiness leads to a murder investigation by local police, a retired state director of special education who writes mysteries, and a wheelchair-bound insurance claims detective. The laid-off teacher and affected parents, meanwhile, enlist the aid of a lawyer (who happens to know the mystery writer).
A resident of Haslett, MI - Rich Baldwin has published more than 20 books, including two children's books, a set of religious vignettes, several skits and the ""AARP Magazine - Swim Suit Edition"", under his own company Buttonwood Press. He is also a public speaker, addressing groups on the topic of ""How to Self Publish Your Own Book"" Prior to becoming a published author, he enjoyed a long and exciting career in special education, serving as a teacher, college professor and spending 20 years at the Michigan Department of Education where he was a consultant, supervisor and State Director of Special Education from 1990-97. Rich was born in Kalamazoo, MI; raised in Grand Haven, MI; and has graduate and post graduate degrees from Western Michigan University as well as a doctorate from Kansas University. Rich loves to spend time with his fans, and likes nothing better than meeting people when he is at book-signings and making appearances on promotional tours.
