Here I am completely outnumbered at the Mystery Writers of America panel at the Southern Festival of Books this past weekend. It was a lively, fun panel with Sallie Bisell , J.T. Ellison, Stacy Allen, and me, along with a great capacity crowd!
I think the crowds may have been a little down this year due to the incredible downpour (two days later and it’s still raining like crazy here), but it was still a wonderful weekend. If you’ve never made it to the SFB in October, you really should. Mark it down in your calendar for October, 2015.
Despite the downpour, we had a great panel today at the 2014 Southern Festival of Books. Nashville native/L.A. transplant Don Winston, Texan Ron Davis, and I did a panel called “Bringing Down The Devil: Three Thrillers. We had a near capacity crowd, a lively dialogue that made the ninety minutes go by like five, and lots of good Q&A.
