Faculty member, Book Passage Mystery Writers Conference

Corte Madera, CA

Co-chaired by Cara Black and David Corbett, this is the premiere conference of its kind, focused entirely on students and offering an immersion program with faculty from across the crime writing spectrum. I’m on a couple of discussion groups, and available for informal mentoring, coaching, and critiques. A few spots were open as of this writing. For more information:


Note to book club planners: Holding a book event built around France’s beautiful countryside can be a popular topic. Whether members are recalling past trips, planning for upcoming ones, or daydreaming about one of the world’s most popular host countries, book clubbers enjoy sharing  ideas as well as discussions about the character of small towns and the off-the-beaten-track treasures they may hide. Let me know if your group is interested in reading one of my Burgundy books and having a Vive la France! event.
