Crime Fiction Comes to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Imagine an entire conference filled with mystery fans and authors for four days of crime fiction awesomeness. Well, that's Bouchercon and it's happening October 4-7 in Cleveland, Ohio. I haven't been to Cleveland since I was a kid, but I am headed to Ohio for this event. The opening ceremonies will take place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - in fact, we'll have the whole place to ourselves. What a great place for a party.

The Guests of Honor include one of my all time favorite authors, Elizabeth George, and one of my mother's, Mary Higgins Clark. I'm also looking forward to meeting Toastmaster, John Connolly.  There will be author filled panels on subjects ranging from everything from short stories to writing about exotic locations in thrillers to where authors get their ideas. Other authors attending include Karin Slaughter, Robin Cook, Val McDermid, Michael Connolly, Lee Child, Lisa Black, Catriona McPherson, Kate Brady and Linda Fairstein.


  1. This is going to be such a fun weekend!! Can't wait for all of my Sleuthsisters to roll in town.

  2. I'm really looking forward to the opening ceremonies at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
