What a whirlwind conference and trip. I’m giddy yet exhausted from all the joy and camaraderie that is Bouchercon. I have to say it was one of the best writer conferences I’ve attended in a long time and not just because the food in NOLA is ah-mazing! It was only my second Bouchercon and there will no doubt be more in my future. Crime fiction writers and readers are the best people I could ever hope to know. I feel blessed, humbled, and inspired.
Here are some pics:
Reading from FINN at Noir at the Bar After Dark – thank you Peter Rozovsky for the photo
Murder Under the Sun Panel with Jeffrey Hess, Michael Stanely, Annamaria Alfieri, and C. Michele Dorsey. Mysti Berry rocked it as moderator.
Lee Child moderated a Woman Taking Shots panel that was a conference highlight
A thrill to meet Walter Mosley for the first time.
Special thanks to Jonathan Brown, Sonia Brown, and Michael Pool for being my peeps during this conference. You guys rock!
I’ll be heading to N’awlins tomorrow for the biggest mystery conference and hope to see many of you there. Here’s where I’ll be for sure:
Noir at the Bar After Dark Wednesday Sept. 14 at 9pm at the VooDoo Lounge
Murder Under the Sun panel on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 4:30pm
After that, you’ll surely find me in the hotel bar, the book room, or Acme Oyster House which is right by our hotel – woo hoo! Cheers!
So I’ll be on the “Murder Under the Sun” panel at Boucheron on Thursday, September 15 at 4:30pm in LaGalleries 1.
Fabulous Mysti Berry is moderating (she’s fabulous because she was on my panel for LCC so I know) and I’ll be chatting with authors Michael Stanley, Michele Dorsey, Annamaria Alfieri, and Jeffrey Hess. We’ll be talking about what else but murder on the beach, in the desert, on a boat, or on safari. FINN definitely qualifies because what’s more sunny and murderous than the South Bay?
This is an actual picture of a N’awlins sunrise too! Thanks to Jon Jordan of Crimespree for the awesome pic.
