Killer Nashville

For years, I’ve been hearing great things about the Killer Nashville readers/writers conference for mysteries and thrillers (in Nashville, TN). I thought it was time I went there. It’s too soon for specifics, but I’ll probably give a 3-hour talk about how to write a novel and another talk about how to write comic books (with examples from my Captain America, Spider-Man, and Wolverine comic books).

Oct. 31-Nov 2, 2019
Dallas, TX

Bouchercon is the world’s largest conference for readers and authors of crime fiction, which includes mysteries and thrillers. I registered to attend. It’s too soon to know my schedule, but I look forward to being there. Bourchercon gave me its Lifetime Achievement Award a few years ago. The conference fills early. To register, go to I’ll interview James Paterson onstage on Wednesday evening as an added attraction. We’ll discuss the literacy problem in the US.
