If all went according to plan, by the time you read this, I’ll be in Bethesda, MD, (or headed there) for Malice Domestic, a mystery reader’s conference. This will be my second Malice, and my second time in Washington, DC, and so, unlike last year, I have some idea of what to expect. I’m also hoping to get some sightseeing in. Last year, I saw the White House and the war memorials. This year, I’m planning on visiting Arlington.
So far, my schedule includes:
A Friday Breakfast with other members of Crime Writers of Canada.
A Friday Dinner with other members of Sisters in Crime — Guppy Branch.
A Saturday Breakfast with other members of Sisters in Crime International.
Saturday evening banquet, where I’ll be at the table hosted by Agatha nominee Jane K. Cleland. I love her Josie Prescott series!I’m sure there will be a couple of lunches in there, not to mention some time at the bar sipping on wine!
It’s not all about food and drink, though. I’m part of a terrific panel of authors on Saturday 3 p.m. to 3:50 p.m.
Doris Ann Norris: Moderator
Eileen Rendahl/Kristi Abbott
Judy Penz Sheluk
Book signing from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday: Homeward bound, exhausted, but hopefully filled with new ideas and inspirations, and the memories of time spent with old and new friends.
I’ll be posting pictures on my Facebook Page! Hope you can stop by and check them out. Update next Friday!
