I'll be leaving for Raleigh, North Carolina around midnight tonight to attend Bouchercon 2015, the world mystery convention. Even though this is my first Bouchercon, the organizers were kind enough to invite me to participate in the program!
I'll be a panelist on Lone Wolves & Loose Cannons in Thrillers with some wonderful writers. My fellow panelists will be: Andrew Grant, Ben McPherson, Bruce DeSilva, and Mick Herron. It's an early panel--8:30am on October 9th.
I'm looking forward to Bouchercon for many reasons (like being able to hang out with friends such as Mark Van Name), but given my law enforcement background and some of the straight-up crime fiction I've been writing lately, I'm excited to attend a mystery con.
