This weekend: Left Coast Crime in Portland


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
Friday 1:30-2:15pm
Meg Gardiner (Moderator)
Lisa Fernow
Darrell James
Frances McNamara
Carole Sojka

Been There, Wrote That: The Game Show
Saturday 1:30-2:15pm
Gar Anthony Haywood (Moderator)
Hilary Davidson
Meg Gardiner
Timothy Hallinan
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.
