I am off to Bouchercon, AKA “Murder at the Beach” in Long Beach, California, the world’s largest mystery convention. This is my first time attending so I’m very excited!
Guests of Honor include Simon Wood, J.A. Jance (love her!) Edward Marston & Eoin Colfer. The fabulous Jeffery Deaver is getting the very well deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.
Other authors in attendance include lots of my favorties – Michael Connelly (I’m not stalking him, I swear!) Charlaine Harris, Ivy Pochoda (one of my favorite debuts ever) Linwood Barclay, Gregg Hurwitz, Cara Black, Hank Phillippi Ryan (her latest is one of Library Journal’s best thrillers of 2014,) Laurie R. King, Michael Sears, Barry Lancet, Steph Cha, Sheldon Siegel, Marcia Clark, Duane Swierczynski, and Lee Child (and yes, I am stalking you!)
There are lots more, I’m not kidding – see everyone who is signed up here: http://www.bouchercon2014.com/attendees.php
I will be Tweeting, Facebooking and posting about my experience so stay tuned!
