While author Elaine Viets currently lives in Florida, the St. Louis native visits often and more often than not, her stories involve a St. Louis connection.

For many years Viets was columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

A few months ago, St. Louis on the Air host Don Marsh visited with Viets to talk about the latest book in her Josie Marcus Mystery Shopper series.

Host Steve Potter visited with Elaine Viets to talk about her latest work, “Board Stiff,” the newest book in her A Dead-End Job Mystery series. 

“Board Stiff” traces husband and wife PI team Helen Hawthorne and Phil Sagemont as they investigate a murder at Sunny Jim’s Stand-Up Paddleboard Rental in Florida’s Riggs Beach.

During her visit to St. Louis, Viets is holding a benefit for the St. Louis ALS Association.
