…. Now that it’s on the Deadly Ink website, I can officially announce that I will be the 2015 Fan Guest of Honor, Aug. 7-9, at the Hyatt in New Brunswick, NJ. I’m planning to speak about how I’m a fan because I’m a writer. And became a writer because I’m a fan. I’m in august company (in August): Brad Parks is Guest of Honor and E. F. Watkins the Toastmaster. http://www.deadlyink2014.org/Authors.html

Join me and other NJ authors (and publishers!) at the first Belmar BookCon, Pyanoe Plaza (the brick pathway at Main Street and 9th Ave), Belmar, NJ. Sunday, Oct. 12, 10am-4pm. I’ll be selling, signing, and shmoozing. And if you sometimes need to write something by hand, I have pens (imprinted with my website/blog address, of course).
I’m very excited to have been asked to be on a panel at Bouchercon in Long Beach, CA, on Sat., Nov. 15, 4:30-5:30. I feel as though I’ve been asked to present an Academy Award.
The panel is called “You Say Traditional, I Say Cozy: Exploring the Boundaries of the Classic Mystery Novel,” and is moderated by Sarah Chen. I share the table with John Billheimer, Paul Bishop, Linda Joffe Hull, and Eric James Miller. It’s one of the first times I’ve been on a panel about cozies that has more men than women panelists.
