POISONED PEN PRESS
MYSTERY BOOK PUBLISHER PARTNERSHIP
 
Poisoned Pen Press was founded in 1996 by Barbara Peters, an ex-librarian who turned to a life of crime selling mysteries with her husband, Robert Rosenwald, and their daughter. Peters, who founded Scottsdale, Arizona's The Poisoned Pen, A Mystery Bookstore and More a decade ago, sees consolidations in the publishing industry as a terrible threat to cultural diversity and to the survival of the independent bookstore -- ultimately becoming a subtle form of censorship. Besides, she wants to sell books she likes.

Poisoned Pen Press 's mission has thus been defined as making available books, whether originals or reprints, for today's mystery audience. Its books are distributed through Baker & Taylor and Ingram and are available directly from the publisher and at mystery and general bookstores everywhere.

Todd McFarlane -- having an affinity for unique horror, mystery and suspense stories -- jumped at an opportunity to buy into a publishing company in Arizona which specializes in just that. The partnership with Poisoned Pen Press will allow Todd McFarlane Entertainment a first look at hundreds of stories in development from writers across the country. It is our hope that with so many story ideas at its fingertips, TME will be in an excellent position to reach the goal of becoming a successful production company.
