Mystery writer Sienna Jacks and publisher MECAH Publishing announce that all the net proceeds from the upcoming Milwaukee Series novels will be donated to Urban Anthropology Inc. to fund neighborhood museum exhibits. The first book in this series is now out, entitled The House Off of Brady. See details at http://mecahmilwaukee.com/Fiction.html
Novel synopsis: Two young anthropologists, trying to convince a local nonprofit to sponsor a neighborhood house museum, must show that the historical occupants of the house were representative of Milwaukee’s Brady Street, and that they project positive images for the neighborhood. Their efforts are boosted by a personal journal left behind by one of the home’s occupants—Giuseppe Russo. But as the young anthropologists translate and transcribe the journal, they learn that Giuseppe had been banished from his former community in the Third Ward. Are they about to stumble on information that could kill the project—or something perhaps even worse?
The next two books to be published in this trilogy take place in old Bronzeville and Milwaukee’s Old South Side
