Sisters In Crime

Attended my first Sisters In Crime meeting for the Chicagoland Chapter this past Saturday, October 15th at the Schaumburg Library. This meeting featured Chicago-area mystery authors leading workshops on various aspects of the writing craft: creating memorable characters(Gail Lukasik); handling point-of-view(Michael Allen Dymmoch); crafting suspense(Patricia Rosemoor-my former writing instructor at Columbia College) and writing killer opening scenes(Clare O’Donohue).
Great to see my Weaving Dreams colleagues there: Michelle May, author of The Circle City Mystery Series, and Sue Myers, author of Deception. Looking forward to the next meeting.
