Elgin author to sign copies of novel about Rockton ‘Time Killer’ March 14

Online Staff Report

ROCKTON, Ill. — Elgin, Ill., author Todd Thiede will host a book-signing for his book, Time Killer, from 3 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 14, at Talcott Free Library, 101 E. Main St., Rockton, Ill.

Everyone has had their time wasted before. This is the sentiment that inspired Thiede to write his new novel, a mystery about a man who finally gets fed up with other people wasting his time.

Have you ever stood in a line at a grocery store while a person in front of you argued every price and then at the very end they pulled out a book of coupons?” Thiede asks. “Have you ever waited in a drive thru as the person in front of you took forever to order his food?”

Time Killer is about a person in Rockton, Ill., who has had all of those things happen to him — and he has decided to something about it. He is getting rid of the time-wasters in Rockton. Now, it is up to detectives Max Sampson and Jesse Fairlane to stop the “Time Killer” of Rockton. The “Time Killer” is a murderer on the loose.

Time Killer is 202 pages, available in hardcover, softcover and e-book formats from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Thiede resides in Elgin with his wife and four children.
