One Day Mystery Conference in PA

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Always wanted to go to a mystery conference to meet authors?

“Murder As You Like It” is a one-day conference for mystery readers/fans and writers. It’s a chance to rub elbows with your favorite authors (I’ll be there) and to meet new ones.  Authors will talk about writing their novels and you’ll have a chance to ask questions. You’ll have a chance to get “up close and personal” during Author Speed Dating (each author will go to a table where they will talk with readers about their books. After a few minutes, the authors move to the next table). There will be panels, lunch, and book signing opportunities, too.

When?  September 26th.

Early registration (which includes lunch) until 9/1 is just $25.

For more information, check out this flyer. 2015 Conf Reg Brochure for Authors Websites

Hope to see you there!


When Research Turns Into Life Tips

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

In preparation for the writing phase of each new book in my Amish Mysteries series, I take a trip down to Lancaster County, PA for research. Each time I go, I come away with greater knowledge of the Amish. This last trip, however, had me leaving with new ideas for my life.

I tell how and why over at Amish Wisdom in this post.
