Triangle Sisters in Crime Workshop: September 30

I’m so pleased to be one of the featured presenters at an all-day workshop hosted by the Triangle Chapter of Sisters in Crime on Saturday, September 30. I’ll be kicking things off with a morning session on bringing characters to life on the page, and additional sessions are led by great writers and great friends Ruth Moose and J.D. Allen, with a closing panel at end of day bringing us all on the stage with moderator Karen Pullen.

The workshop takes place at Western Wake Technical Community College, 3434 Kildaire FArm Road, in Cary N.C. The day’s programs run 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and registration is required.

Here’s a quick flyer on the program, or you can visit the website for more information and to register.
