Left Coast Crime Conference Was a Blast

It has taken be several days to decompress from the Left Coast Crime Conference held this last week in Phoenix. I had the pleasure of speaking with many mystery fans and authors and participating in numerous events. I like collecting sound bites at conferences. Here are a few for you:

“Being an athlete is a moratorium on growing up.”

“Write what you want to know.”

When commenting on writing standalone versus series, Thomas Perry said, “One at a time is good fishing.”

“Writing is like digging a hole with your face.”

“Mysteries are writing to heal the world.”
