The Great Killer Nashville starts this Thursday night and runs merrily through Sunday. I’ve been a participant for a long time, and this year, I’m sure, is the best. I’ll be presenting a talk entitled “Using Foreshadowing, Flashback, Dreams and Other Literary Techniques in Detective Novels” which aims to disprove the commonly held myth that detective novels are somehow second rate and can’t be considered fine writing. I’ll be presenting on Friday, August 22, in Broadway Ballroom C/D, Session 15, from 1:45-2:45. I look forward to seeing everyone who has visited my past sessions and all new people too.
