Thrillerfest manages to keep getting better, year after year. I did the whole shebang this year–the FBI workshop, MasterCraft,

CraftFest, and the conference. It was a treat participating in the inaugural session of MasterCraft. My group worked with the fabulous D.P. Lyle, who facilitated an intensive critique of the attendees’ first ten pages.
|Panel: Writers’ quirks and superstitions|
On Saturday I took part in a panel hosted by Brad Parks. Our topic was writers’ quirks and superstitions. We had fun with the theme, and even got a bit rowdy at times. (I seem to be preparing to make a snarky riposte in the photo!)
A little later, I was interviewed by Jessica Mazo for MartiniProductionsNYC for their Author’s Chair sequence.
Now I’m back, and already looking forward to Bouchercon, which will be in my neck of the woods this year. Will you be attending Bouchercon? And who did I miss seeing at Thrillerfest? I couldn’t reset my west coast bio-clock and consequently faded early, so I didn’t hang out at the bar gatherings as much as usual this year!
