Noir at the Bar – LA versus Seattle!

I’m excited to team up with my fellow crime fiction Angelenos to do battle against the Emerald City scribes. It’s on, baby! It’s all happening this Saturday, August 5th at the Hotel Sorrento in downtown Seattle in the Dunbar Room. Will “the Thrill” Viharo is our esteemed host / referee.

Hope to see you there!

Will Viharo interviews me on Digital Media Ghost

I’m up today over at Digital Media Ghost talking about my influences and why I write what I write.

DIGITAL MEDIA GHOST – INTERVIEW WITH SARAH M. CHEN

Will “the Thrill” Viharo is a prolific and talented writer and the host / organizer of Noir at the Bar in Seattle. I’ll be there August 5th at an epic LA v. Seattle read-off!

Thank you, Will, for the opportunity and interview!

 

IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY 3 DAYS…

Noir at the Bar Seattle was a blast! I met so many talented and friendly writers like Brian Thornton, Michael Pool, Will Viharo, Frank Zafiro, Robert Dugoni, Jim Thomsen, Vince Keenan, and Eric Johnson. Of course, Danny Gardner is always great company and a fabulous reader. I’m glad I didn’t have to read after him. I’m forever grateful to Michael Pool for organizing such a fun event and hopefully I’ll be back next year when my novella CLEANING UP FINN (which I read an excerpt from) comes out! Cheers!
