Those of you who know me also know that I write in multiple genres, which currently include paranormal romance, romantic suspense and cozy mysteries. And I’m not the only one!
Last weekend I attended Malice Domestic, an annual conference held in Bethesda, Maryland, for readers and writers of cozy mysteries. It was delightful, as always. I was on a panel about pets in mysteries, and also participated in Malice Go Round, where readers sit at tables while authors, two at a time, sit down with them and get to talk about their work for two minutes apiece. Exhausting, but fun! That was in addition to parties and hanging around at the reception area talking with people and more.
One of the fun things I also got to do was to meet with several of the people who will be fellow panelists with me at July’s RWA National Conference! Yes, we’re all attending both kinds of conferences this year. Our RWA panel topic will be From White Collar to Red Herring, and we’ll be talking about our non-writing professional experiences not only for plotting, but also for managing our writing careers.
