An award-winning reporter out of Boston who wrote six mysteries will speak in Mission Viejo Thursday at 7 p.m. at City Hall Council Chamber, 200 Civic Center.

Here's more about Ryan from the City of Mission Viejo:
The hard-hitting reporter will discuss her fascinating career – going from
radio reporter to undercover television investigations at Boston’s Channel 7 –
along with the obstacles and rewards and how she ended up as a bestselling
author of six mystery novels.
Ryan is an award-winning investigative reporter for Boston's NBC affiliate. Her
work has resulted in new laws; people sent to prison; homes removed from
foreclosure; and millions of dollars in restitution. Along with her 30 EMMYs,
Ryan has won dozens of other journalism honors. She's been a radio reporter, a
legislative aide in the United States Senate and an editorial assistant at
Rolling Stone Magazine.
Her bestselling novel – "The Other Woman" – was the first in a new
series from Forge Books and was listed as a Best Book of 2012 by the Kansas
City Star, the Sacramento Bee, Suspense Magazine and the Boston Globe.
"The Wrong Girl" is a riveting novel of familial relationships,
greed, senseless murder and the ultimate in deception. Books will be available
for purchase and will be signed after the presentation.
