What fun meeting C.J.Box, the guest of honor at Sleuthfest, this year in Deerfield Beach, Florida from February 25-28, 2016! The annual conference for mystery fans and writers featured many panels discussing (for example) killing by poison, the experiences of “black ops” (that is, mercenaries), how to plot a book, write dialogue, build suspense. Publishing a book was the topic of many panels, too, and writers with completed manuscripts could “pitch” them to an agent or editor (by pre-arranged appointment).  Watch for Sleuthfest next year, sponsored by the Florida Chapter of Mystery Writers of America!
