I'll be on a panel at BoucherCon 2013 -- billed as the world's leading convention for crime fiction writers and readers -- to be held in Albany, New York from September 19-22. My group will be working with the topic "Nobody Knows but Me" about the all the unseen things that authors enjoy or suffer through in writing a novel. For Fall Line, it was about fifteen years of occasional daydreaming and four years of researching, writing, rewriting, revising, cutting, and editing before the book took its final form. You can hear more about it at BoucherCon starting at 1:50 p.m. Saturday, September 21. Find out more about my panel and the schedule here.
