Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference 2017

A Cat, a Recipe, and an Old Curiosity Shoppe: How to Write a Cozy Mystery                 This was the title of my author panel at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday 8-26-17. This is our group right before we began our session, which turned out fun and interactive. The panelists, in sitting order, are: Lois Schmidt (moderator) far right, Barbara Collins next to her, next Traci Andrighetti to my left, and Carol L. Wright to my right. Phyllis Gobbell was at the right end of the panel. This is the second panel I’ve been on with Phyllis. When Barbara Collins started describing her antique cozy series, I realized I’d read several of her books.

Prior to us getting together, Tom Wood stopped by to give Phyllis Gobbell and me a victory hug before we went in for the panel.

Clay Stafford interviewed the famous Max Allan Collins at a special lunch event earlier.                    

Parnassus Bookstore is the usual make shift Killer Nashville bookstore each year. I brought my books in for my signing only to find out this year they’d already ordered them from my publisher. Cool.



After the book signing, I went into the main lobby area of the Embassy Suites in Franklin, Tennessee for the drinks and snacks.

I’ve been going to the Killer Nashville Conference every single year since 2009. I feel so at home there and am already looking forward to going in 2018.
