Sisters in Crime: Stealing from the Dead: Ideas and Where We Get Them
You don't need to be an international spy to write a page-turning thriller! A panel of four mystery authors, who are members of the New England branch of Sisters in Crime, will tell you how they put a new twist on an old plot, search newspapers, visit courtrooms, and learn to discover storylines right in their own neighborhoods. The four panelists include authors Deborah Doucette, and Kate Flora, Arlene Kay, Clea Simon.
Coralie Jensen is a graduate in English from University of CA at Berkeley. She speaks at libraries and bookstores about her mystery series set in Tuscany, L'Oro Verde and Il Pane Della Vita, her historical suspense Winter Harvest, and Lety's Gift and Passup Pont both set in Canada.
