Darden North will join other native Mississippi authors and artists at the 2010 Mississippi Picnic in Central Park East Meadow in the Mississippi Authors tent. Copies of Norths three novels will be available for purchase and signing.
The New York Mississippi Picnic was started in 1979 as the brainchild of a handful of native Mississippians living in New York City. The group joined together to create an event to highlight Mississippi’s attributes. The first picnic attracted some 500 individuals, and that number has steadily increased over the years; the 2010 picnic is expected to attract more than 2,000 picnic-goers! In addition to the picnic and live music, there will be a Mississippi Authors Tent where mystery and suspense author Darden North and others will have their work available for purchase and autographing.

Brief synopsis of Novels by Darden North, MD ...
HOUSE CALL While Dr. Knox Chamblee struggles to build a medical practice in Mississippi, an attractive nurse is found floating in a bloody bathtub and a doctor falls to his frozen death from a deer stand. The police suspect Dr. Aslyn Hawes, Chamblee’s female partner and nemesis, whose jealousy of the victims cloaks her in suspicion. As the investigation unfolds in House Call and a psychotic killer is to strike again, Chamblee’s career is sabotaged by reverse sexual discrimination.
POINTS OF ORIGIN In Points of Origin the death of a young woman costs Dr. Dan Foxworth his plastic surgery dynasty and his life. A medical school reject, Foxworth’s son Sher becomes a fireman, pitting him against an arsonist hired to torch the mansion of the same malpractice attorney who ruined his father. When the lawyer’s house explodes, the origin of the flames does not rest alone with the arsonist. Fierce retribution is unleashed as Sher Foxworth avenges his family’s destruction.
FRESH FROZEN After movie star Allyn Saxton survives a string of broken relationships, she enters a reproduction center to have a baby. Her plans of seclusion are misguided when an Internet spy breaks through the center’s security to steal her frozen embryos. But there is competition. A nearly-bankrupt policeman and his tormented wife are also patients, the wife so desperate for pregnancy that she plans to kill. Human reproductive tissue becomes a fatal commodity in Fresh Frozen.
