I'm running around these days with a number of things to do, so writing a piece this week is proving a bit difficult. Still, I guess I can use this occasion to mention something I'll be participating in, an event put on by the Mystery Writers of America New York branch. It's CrimeCONN Express 2, so named for a crime writer conference normally held in Connecticut. This year, for the second year in a row, it's virtual, with a moderator talking to three crime fiction writer (or publisher) panelists.
The description for the event reads "What we can learn from writing about places - or time periods - in which we don't live. It’s a big universe out there, and international crime writing has never been more rich and mind-bending. How learning about crime in Paris, or Stockholm, can inform your story set in, for example, a small New England town."
I'm looking forward to talking with these three and I'll do my best to keep things engaging and lively. It's a free Zoom event, but you do have to register to watch.

If you have an hour free Thursday evening, hope you can join us.
