Word on the Street

I’m looking forward to Word on the Street on Sunday, September 20th, in Lethbridge, AB. I’ll be at the Crime Writers of Canada table and participating in two events.

At 1:00 PM, I emcee Grab a Coffee with Killer Some Writers, featuring readings and conversations with mystery authors David A. Poulsen, Garry Ryan and Sharon Wildwind. At 2:00 PM, at It’s Not CSI: A police sergeant and mystery writer’s perspectives, Police Sergeant Robin Klassen and I discuss how a mystery writer approaches writing about crime and police work, what the day to day life of a police officer is like and how fact and fiction differ.

When I’m not at presenting or at the CWC table, I’ll be checking out the festival’s featured guests: Kelley Armstrong, author of numerous fantasy and paranormal books, Maureen Jennings, author of the popular Murdoch Mysteries series and Sharon Johnston, wife of our Governor General, who will recount the struggles of veterans adjusting to life in Canada after WWI.

Let’s hope for warm, sunny weather and a fabulous turnout at this sixth year of the Lethbridge festival.
