Literary Las Vegas: Janet Coursey

It’s been four years since Sara Dobson’s husband, James, died from lung cancer. She feels his absence every day, but her life is full. Work and her connection to her four children and her grandchildren keep the 50-year-old widow going. While preparing for her youngest child’s 21st birthday, Sara rediscovers a side of herself she thought had died with James. Harboring secrets she can’t share for fear of hurting the people she loves, she turns in frustration to her grandfather clock, a 146-year-old heirloom she learns holds generations of her family’s darkest tragic secrets. Sara’s discovery is shared in Janet Coursey’s novel “The Secrets of Time,” which is set to be followed by “The Secrets of Time — Treasures of the Heart.” Coursey, who moved to Las Vegas in 1989 with the intention of opening a feed store, is a social media specialist for a local car dealership and is co-host of the radio show “Aspects of Writing” with James Kelly and Dana Micheli. The show is broadcast at 2 p.m. every other Tuesday and can be found at klav1230am.com. For more on the author, visit janetcoursey.com.

Literary Las Vegas: David L. Berger

Henderson writer David L. Berger shares his life as a Beverly Hills private eye in the book “Case Book of a Private Investigator.” Covering his life from the ’50s to the ’70s, Berger’s essays detail his exploits from the glamor of Tinseltown to the underbelly of Los Angeles. Accounts include tales of a diamond thief who stole a gem with his tongue, a prostitution ring broken up by a simple flash camera and an organ company janitor who spent years stealing the pieces of a giant church organ and reassembling them in his garage. He might have gotten away with it if the neighbors wouldn’t have complained about the earthquake-like noise. Berger’s work in security had him mixing with notable people of the day from Frank Sinatra to President Lyndon Johnson. Since his move to Henderson, Berger has served as a forensic security consultant, an expert witness and as a police academy instructor.
