Julie Kramer has published six books since she left WCCO in 2001. She was at the Minneapolis-based CBS station for 20 years as a news producer. Her debut novel,"Stalking Susan," came out in 2008. Her mystery novels tend to deal with a fictional TV reporter.
This year, "Delivering Death" was published. She promoted the mystery from Florida to Arizona, but also included stops in Minnesota. Kramer, who grew up in Adams, will be at St. John Lutheran Church in Owatonna at 1 p.m. Thursday.
"I always try to have a lot of Minnesota stuff because I grew up in a small town in Minnesota. This is kind of my home turf," said Kramer, who lives in White Bear Lake.
