Event: Malice Domestic, May 3-5

malice 2

I’ll be part of several events at this year’s Malice Domestic Convention, May 3-5 at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, Maryland—thanks in part to my story “When Duty Calls” being an Agatha Award finalist for Best Short Story!

  • On Friday, May 3, at 10 a.m., I’ll take part in my first “Malice-Go-Round”—billed as “like speed dating, with authors.” (I’ll start practicing my pitch soon.)
  • On Saturday, May 4, at 10 a.m., the panel discussion “Make It Snappy” will feature this year’s nominees for the Agatha Award for Best Short Story: Dana Cameron, Sheila Connolly, Barb Goffman, B.K. Stevens, and me (!!!). Steven Steinbock, a good friend and gifted critic, will moderate.
  • Saturday night at 7 p.m. is the Agatha Awards Banquet—wish me luck! (Last I heard, I’ll be hosting a table, too. Folks signing up for my table should expect bourbon of some sort as party favors… and free-flowing wine, of course.)
  • On Sunday, May 5, at 11:15 a.m., I’ll be taking the moderator role at the panel “Murder With A Little Education on the Side: Mysteries That Tackle Social Issues,” with John Billheimer, Joan Boswell, Donis Casey, and Edith McClintock.

Looking forward to the whole program—and to seeing so many fellow writers, readers, and friends throughout the weekend! —Art Taylor
