Women of Mystery and Thriller

Women of Mystery and Thriller

Jun 02, 2018, 5:00 PM - 5:45 PM

Location: 1E10

There’s a long history of women in mystery from Agatha Christie onward, but the thriller world has tended to be more male-dominated.  Come hear these fierce women writers talk about how that is changing and how their work crosses genre and convention.  The authors on this panel have a broad range of experiences writing male and female detectives and P.I.’s, creating characters for novels as well as television, and keeping a series character going over a number of books.  In this panel, they’ll discuss their inspirations, research, and writing habits, all of which contribute to the sometimes dark, twisty, and even sexy paths they lead their readers down.
