Bouchercon, Long Beach 13-16 November 2014

I had a great time at Bouchercon in Long Beach, catching up with old friends and making new ones – it’s like being at a wedding, except that everyone is a writer or reader of crime fiction. It’s so much fun! I was on a panel discussing humorous mysteries with Melodie Campbell, Sharon Fiffer, Sue Ann Jaffarian and Diana Killian. The panel was moderated by Terry Shames who had just won a Macavity Award for her first novel, A Killing at Cotton Hill.

Bouchercon is the biggest crime writing convention in the world and is held in a different city each year, usually in the US. Next year it’s in Raleigh, North Carolina. Details here.

Bouchercon is organised and run by volunteers. It's a tremendous amount of work - each year the convention is attended by around 1800 people! I'd like to thank everyone who helped make this year's event such a great success - and all the people who are already working on Bouchercon 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
