This month's meeting of the Mid-Atlantic chapter of Mystery Writers of America will feature the launch of "Bad Cop, No Donut," a collection of tales of cops behaving badly. I am one of the 15 crime writers represented in the anthology, and one of the four who will be at the meeting. After the reception at 6:30pm we'll have dinner, followed by a panel discussion. We authors will answer questions tossed at us by the other mystery writers and super-fans who will be present. The group meets at the Embassy Suites Hotel in the Chevy Chase Pavilion, 4300 Military Road, N.W. Washington, D.C.
