Where to Find Me at Bouchercon

Are you headed to Albany for Bouchercon this week? I’ve been looking forward to it since… well, since last year’s Bouchercon in Cleveland ended. If you make it to this year’s edition of the world’s best crime-fiction conference, please look me up. Here’s where to find me:

Thursday, Sept. 19th, noon-12:55pm: I’m moderating “She’s Got a Way — Methods of Murder,” a panel with Meredith Anthony, Matthew Clemens, Chris Ewan, Helen Smith, and Sarah Weinman. Um, I get to talk to some terrific writers about ways to kill people? It’s a dream come true! (Room 2)

Thursday, Sept. 19th, 3pm-3:30pm: I’m doing an Authors’ Choice panel with authors Robin Spano and David Whellams. Since the titles of the real panels were taken from Billy Joel songs, we stole “My Life,” since we’re talking about using real life in your fiction. (Room 5)

Friday, Sept. 20th, 10:20am-11:15am: Never mind that it’s Friday morning. The panel is “Night is Still Young — Going Dark: The New Noir” moderated by Reed Farrel Coleman and featuring Dick Lochte, John Rector, Todd Robinson, Jason Starr, Duane Swierczynski, and me. Just don’t ask us what noir is, okay? (Room 1)

Saturday, Sept. 21st, 2:30pm-3pm: Noir at the Bar Albany! Okay, it’s not actually at the bar — it’s in Room 5 — but Eric Beetner has lined up some fantastic writers to do some ultra-short reads. And we’re giving away books! The talent includes  Owen Laukkanen, Johnny Shaw, Les Edgerton, Matt Coyle, Lisa Brackmann, Travis Richardson, Terrence McCauley, Anonymous-9, Josh Stallings, and me. (Room 5)

One more thing: on Sunday, Sept. 22nd, from 3pm-4pm, I’ll be at Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine’s booth at the Brooklyn Book Festival. I’ll be signing copies of the November issue, which features my story “Darkness in the City of Light.”
