Do you outline before you start writing your book or do you just plunge in and write by the seat of your pants?
Outliners Paul Draker and Steve Hockensmith will face off against Cara Black and Catriona McPherson in crime fictions’s version of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. This panel will be refereed byJanet Rudolph aka The Mistress of Mystery.
Writing about a character way different than you
Can you successfully walk in someone else’s shoes? David Corbett, Seth Harwood, Terry Shames, and Laurie R. King will discuss the pleasures and pitfalls of writing characters who are very different to themselves. This panel will be moderated by Kepler's favorite Keith Raffel.
4:00 p.m. - Mystery Trivia
Join us in teams of two to four and put your knowledge of mysteries to the test! There will be prizes. There will be snacks. There will be much raucous laughter. There might even be a trophy!
