OCC is the Orange County Chapter of Romance Writers of America. Weâ€™re romance writers. But some of us also are mystery writers. Writers of romantic suspense. Both.
Iâ€™m always delighted to attend OCC meetings, but Iâ€™m especially looking forward to the one next weekend. Why? Itâ€™ll be chock full of excellent research info for those of us who are mystery and suspense writers as well as romance authors.
First, I see that Debra Holland is giving a morning workshop on â€œCreating Fighting and
Self-Defense Scenes.â€ That should be fascinating. The chapterâ€™s published authors are even forgoing a Published Authors Workshop that morning to be able to attend Debraâ€™s presentation.
And then, in the afternoon, our guest speaker Dennis Kee, a weapons expert, will present a program on “Don’t Blame the Gun, Blame the Writer.” It sounds as if itâ€™ll be full of excellent information on weapons.
I had thought Iâ€™d be out of town next weekend, but fortunately my plans changed. Iâ€™ll be there! See you all soon–and Iâ€™m really looking forward to the June OCC meeting.
