On Wednesday, April 29, the Mystery Writers of America hosts a symposium where you can hear the Edgar nominees talk about their craft. I’m incredibly honored to be moderating one of the panels, which will be on the topic of Creating Characters That The Reader Can Relate To. Don’t we all want to know the answer to this?
There will be five fabulous authors on my panel, and I’d strongly recommend reading their books, and following them (and perhaps attending the panel!)
