March 2016 news!

March 2016

Lots of exciting things are happening this year!

I’m thrilled and honored to announce that my debut YA mystery, CITY OF ANGELS, will be published with the acclaimed Polis Books in 2017. Here is the Publisher’s Weekly announcement:

Anthony and Macavity nominee Kristi Belcamino’s debut Young Adult novel CITY OF ANGELS, set in 1992 Los Angeles amidst the boiling tension of the Rodney King trial, about a destitute teenager named Nikki who ends up living above a punk rock bar, and must investigate the disappearance of a young girl who has either succumbed to the streets, or something far worse.

I’ve long admired Jason Pinter and his publishing company and am very excited to be part of the Polis Books family. I join talented authors, such as Alex Segura, Rob Hart, Bryon Quertermous, Patricia Abbott, Dave White, and Todd Robinson!

In other news, my novella-length true crime/memoir Letters From a Serial Killer comes out April 26th (read more about it here). This intense little book was written with Stephanie Kahalekulu, the woman who raised Xiana Fairchild. The man we write about kidnapped and killed Xiana.
