I spent the weekend at the Columbus (OH) Writer's Conference. Every time I attend one of these things I feel like maybe, just maybe, someday I'll be able to write my way out of a paper bag. The conference was not Mystery specific, but there were several good workshops on the art of writing the crime scene and forensics. The star of the show was Lee Lofland Lee has got a new book out that is flying off the bookshelves, Police Procedure & Investigation: A Guide for Writers from Writer's Digest Books.

If you want to learn how to write a realistic crime scene this is the book for you. Congrats Lee, and good luck with the novel!

Thanks for the kind words, Terry. As always, the Columbus conference was a lot of fun.

I can't wait to read your book. I've just added it to the top of my to-read pile. You're next after James Patterson's new book.

I hope to see you again, soon.

I seond the recommendation. Saw him in Portland and had a great time at both his workshops. He has a great sense of humor but also tells it exactly as it is, a bonus for those of us who need to know the details. Get his book. It is one of the best I've seen in a long time.
