Mystery in the Midlands • July 25

I’m so excited to be part of this year’s Mystery in the Midlands—which I’d planned to attend in person but which made the decision to move online as a virtual event. And what a line-up!

Below is the information from Sisters in Crime, co-sponsoring with Mystery Writers of America. The virtual event is on Saturday, July 25, and I’ll be part of a panel on short fiction with John Floyd and Tara Laskowski.

Title: “Mystery in the Midlands”

Date: Saturday, July 25, 2020

Time: 10:00 am – 2:30 pm EDT

Presenter: Charlaine Harris, Jeffery Deaver, Gigi Pandian, and many more; and facilitator: Dana Kaye 

Cost: $FREE 


Mystery in the Midlands, a mid-summer conference sponsored by the Palmetto Chapter of Sisters in Crime and the Southeastern Region of Mystery Writers of America,  was scheduled to be held in “Famously Hot” Columbia, South Carolina on Saturday, July 25, featuring guest of honor,  Charlaine Harris, and an array of guests. Then, the pandemic hit! What to do? 

Our scheduled guests were too wonderful to cancel Mystery in the Midlands, so we decided to go virtual via Crowdcast with a half-day workshop moderated by Dana Kaye. Now, any member of SinC and MWA can participate in Mystery in the Midlands for FREE

What better way to beat the heat of July than spending time in your air-conditioned home or sunbathing outdoors listening to Charlaine Harris? She’ll be joined by John Floyd, Tara Laskowski, and Art Taylor (short stories), Alexia Gordon, Toni L.P. Kelner, and Gigi Pandian (paranormals), and Charlaine Harris, Dana Cameron and Jeffery Deaver (novels to screenplays).
