SinC & CWA Events

This first couple of weeks of February has been brisk with events—fun times! And I’m looking forward to talking writing and short stories and more at two more events this week.

First, on Thursday, February 10, at 7 p.m. PST (that’s 10 a.m. where I live on the East Coast!), I’ll be chatting about short fiction with the Puget Sound Chapter of Sisters in Crime—and specifically with Alice Boatwright, who will be moderating the discussion.

And Alice is also leading the show two days later for a panel hosted by the North American Chapter of the Crime Writers Association: “Staying Published” with Cathy Ace, Sheila Lowe, Marty Wingate, and me on Saturday, February 12, at 1 p.m. PST. (That’s 4 p.m. for me, I keep reminding myself—or maybe I should just move to the West Coast?)

Looking forward to all this—and here’s a full list of upcoming events ahead too:
