An editor and a reporter from the Mercury News and Bay Area News Group decided it would be fun to put together a group of mystery writers and see how well they did at getting out of an escape room. They reached out to Penny Warner and asked if she’d participate and get together some other authors. As a result, I was lucky enough to be included in a group that consisted of Penny, her husband, Tom, Margaret Dumas, Ann Parker, Carole Price, and Simon Wood. We were put in the Edison Room created by Palace Games located at the Palace of Fine Arts. We had a great time…and we escaped!
