From September 8 – 11, 2022 I’ll be at Bouchercon at the Downtown Hilton in beautiful Minneapolis, hanging out with writer and reader friends who I’m sure also will be excited to be attending a live crime writing conference.  I’ll be participating in two panel discussions:

Thursday, September 8, from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. in the Marquette Ballroom 2 & 3 the panel is BURYING THE LEDE:  MYSTERIES WITH JOURNALISTS.  Vera Chan will moderate a discussion among Curtis Ippolito, K.L. Murphy, Rich Zahradnik and me.

Friday, September 9 from 4:15 – 5:00 p.m. in the Marquette Ballroom 4 & 5, the topic is MOONLIGHTING: THE PI TRADITION with Anthony Bidulka, Reed Farrel Coleman, Cheryl Head, Delia Pitts and me, with J.D. Redman herding us cats.

Otherwise I’ll be sitting in on plenty of other panels and presentations and doing lots of socializing, too.

From November 11 – 13 I’ll be at New England Crime Bake at the Hilton in Dedham Massachusetts.  More details to follow, but on Friday night November 11, I’ll be wrangling a panel called TRUTH OR LIE?, during which a group of distinguished writers and a well-known reviewer may respond to my questions with true stories or they might just make stuff up.

I’ll also be coordinating the recognition for debut authors at Crime Bake. At last count there were ten, and we look forward to applauding them on publication of their first novels this past year.


If you would like me to come to your library, coffee house, community center, or book group to speak about my work, please drop me a note at and we’ll set it up!
