Join a discussion; read about Route 66 and novel settings
The Big Thrill, the online publication of the International Thriller Writers is hosting an open discussion: “Are men’s mystery/suspense novel plots more thrilling than women’s?”
You can join the discussion by logging on here: The Big Thrill. Join me and three other mystery writers to talk about potential bias against women writers and ethnic themes in mystery novels.
On another subject: How does the setting of a novel influence the story? I went to journalism school at Fresno State University in the San Joaquin Valley of California. Recently the Kings River Life Magazine, which covers the valley, published an article of mine about how settings inspire mystery writers and how Route 66 plays a part in “Death in Nostalgia City.”
