Southern Festival of Books

October means the Southern Festival of Books, the biggest, most important literary event in Nashville! Over 20,00 book lovers are expected to attend, October 12-14, downtown. Authors from all over the U.S. will be presenting.
I’ll be on one of the panels with other Sisters in Crime writers. Our topic is “Misadventures in Mystery,” the lengths to which a crime writer will go for realism and research. I’m sure  Lisa Wysocky, Kelly Oliver, and Karen Robards have had a few misadventures, as have I! It’s always fun to get together with the Sisters (and Misters).
Our panel is Saturday, October 13, 2 pm at the Nashville Main Library’s Banner Room.

It’s free, it’s fun, and you may get to see the next great American writer!

I write a little bit of everything - fiction, nonfiction, and sometimes even poetry. For twenty years I served on the English faculty at Nashville State Community College, where I taught composition, literature, and creative writing. I was editor of the literary magazine, Tetrahedra, for eight years, and it was one of the joys of my career to see student writers get their first opportunity to be published. I earned my B.S. in Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and received my M.A. in English from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee. My home is Nashville, close to my two daughters and their families. I like to play tennis and play the piano. Tuesday nights, I meet with a writers group that I've been in for more years than I will say!
