My panelists are:
(Voracious, Shattered Roads)
Alice has an interesting background in science and paleo-climatology, and she has traveled to wild places around the globe, so I’m sure she will have much to say about the accurate portrayal of “place” in fiction.
I’d also like to find out how she landed her sweet gig of writing books for Star Wars, Buffy and Supernatural!
(House of Homicide)
Eileen actually lived in a house that was haunted by the serial killer who created the specters, so ghost questions will be directed to her first.
Interestingly, when the house was put up for sale, it sparked a bidding war and the house sold for $111,000 over the asking price!
(Murder Casts a Spell, Murder Lifts the Spirits)
Margaret was a lawyer in her previous life, so we’ll delve into writing witchcraft as a lawyer. That should be interesting!
She calls her books cozy crime novels.
(The Red Chair, the Grey Door and the Black Dress, and more than a dozen short films).
Danna began writing after a car accident left her faced with the challenge of relearning basic skills due to cognitive impairment. That interests me since I have resumed writing after suffering a stroke two years ago. Danna says she began her TV show to improve her speaking skills, and now she has two popular segments airing in Sacramento and has won awards for a dozen short films, as well as publishing a three-novel series.
And what do readers demand from paranormal suspense books?
The conference is next weekend, so I’ll report back here shortly and let you know how it went.
Thank you in advance for your comments!
