Malice Domestic - Great Success

We're got back late Monday from the Malice Domestic Conference in Bethesda, Maryland after a great weekend. It was great catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. I got to moderate a panel on Saturday, spend time at the Sisters in Crime and Raleigh Bouchercon (2015) booths, and having meals with lots of my favorite mystery authors and other friends.

Six of us from NC rode up on Amtrak together on Thursday and shared a taxi to the hotel. We laughed almost all the way. Our Triangle SinC president, Karen Ponder blogged all through the trip, but I was too in ambitious to even try that! This is Karen with Marcia Talley.

I did make a lot of photos, especially of the cool shoes folks wore.

Closed and peep toes—sparkles and plain


Those that hurt just to look at them (she said they hurt to wear them, too!
And red, red, everywhere!

Authors in the Triangle

Great authors are coming to the area. I hope to see many of you at one (or more) of these great events!
