Though I was beginning to become angry with it, because the three wouldn't leave Tucson! I was going to go to the Hillerman Conference (I didn't win BTW). I paid for a chapter conference with Judith Van Gieson. I kept that. We spoke this morning.

It was a very helpful time! She re-energized the novel, bringing me focus. Like using two POVs because both characters (Natty B and Dia) are great characters. So I can't wait to work on it in Paris!

Looking for an online mystery writing class/mystery writers conference

As I've mentioned, I am seriously madly in love with my mystery novel in progress: Snaketown. I am looking for a mystery writers conference which is about new writers. I don't want an agent or schmooze one.

Looking for a decent mystery writing class. Gotham? Seems like a factory. Also, doesn't seem to read students work. Somewhere else? I don't want to go back to school.

Am I dreaming? All suggestions gratefully received and appreciated!

wow. A screenplay is quite an undertaking. I've never attempted but have a good friend in PHX that's just finishing one. I applaud you!
Did you get some of that monsoon dump last night? Wondrous, isn't it?

Sorry this took me so long to reply. I've had some sign in issues with my Crimespace account.

Do let me know if you are returning to Tucson!

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”
Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.
