This weekend I’ll be attending Left Coast Crime 2015: Crimelandia. I am excited that I’ll get to attend this excellent crime writers’ conference, held this year in one of my favorite cities, Portland, Oregon.
Most of the time I’ll be hanging out talking about mysteries, thrillers, and suspense novels with readers and other writers. To reiterate: this is my ideal weekend.
I’ll also be taking part in a couple of panels.
She Said, She Said: Writing the Female Protagonist
Meg Gardiner (Moderator)
Been There, Wrote That: The Game Show
Gar Anthony Haywood (Moderator)
D.P. (Doug) Lyle
The first panel should offer plenty of lively discussion. The second panel should be a hoot. To quote our moderator: “The purpose of the panel is to test how well you know your own work, and to see how many laughs a room full of people can get at your expense when you can’t remember a damn thing about your last book, let alone the one you wrote three years ago.”
If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, drop on by.
