Killer Nashville Conference

I'm thrilled to be the guest of honor, along with Hank Phillippi Ryan, at this year's Killer Nashville International Writers' Conference



After a couple of years under wraps, I'm excited for the opportunity to meet readers and fans, and to connect with other writers.


The Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference was created in 2006 by author/filmmaker Clay Stafford in an effort to bring together forensic experts, writers, and fans of crime and thriller literature.


Over the years, the Killer Nashville brand has expanded to include much more than the annual writers’ conference, and has become the premier forum for all genres incorporating mystery, thriller, and suspense .



The conference will be held on Thursday, August 18 through Sunday, August 21.


It's been a while since I've participated in a book signing event, so I'm eager to get off Zoom and meet readers and fans in person.


Book signings at Killer Nashville are open to the public.






I will be signing books at the following times:

  • Friday, August 19 at 11:00am, 1:20pm, and 5:00pm

  • Saturday, August 20 at 11:00am.

In addition to offering the keynote address––What Writers Really Need to Know––to kick off the conference on Friday morning, I will also be participating in the following panels:

  • Writing Suspense (Friday, 1:50pm)

  • To Plot Or Not To Plot (Saturday 9am)

I'm honored to be interviewed by Clay Stafford on Friday at 12:30pm




In other news...

I'm busy putting the final touches on my next manuscript and will have more news soon––including the cover and title of next year's thriller! Look for a newsletter coming at the end of August.


That's all for now!
