Book Passsage Mystery Writers Conferece

Friends and readers in the Bay Area: join me at Book Passage!

I’m excited to announce that I will be attending the 21st Annual Book Passage Mystery Writers Conference in Corte Madera, California. Held at one of my favorite bookstores, the conference will provide a great opportunity for mystery writing fans and authors to gain some insight into the craft from their favorite writers and the many accomplished faculty members attending this year.

I hope you can attend. I will be speaking with William Petrocelli, author of The Circle of Thirteen, at the Event Room on the first day of the conference, Thursday, July 24th at 5pm. The event will be moderated by author Tim Maleeny.

As always, I’m looking forward to attending the conference and hope to see you there!

For more information regarding the conference, please visit the Book Passage website.
