I was honored to moderate a panel called, "Writing From the Headlines" with authors Pamela Callow, Diane Fanning, Ryan David Jahn, Karen E. Olson, and Rick Reed.
I was thrilled to finally meet in person the fabulous Patti Abbott.
I met a new friend, author Catriona McPherson. What a sweetheart!
Glad to see folks I've had the privilege of meeting before, at last year's Bouchercon in San Francisco, or at book signings in New York City, such as Brad Parks, Joelle Charbonneau, Barb Goffman, and of course seeing another fellow New York Sister in Crime, Clare Toohey.
Plans are underway for Bouchercon 2012 ~ in Cleveland, Ohio, October 4-7.
