Crime Bake! Where To Find Us


Jessie: Today is my day for a giveaway! The winner is invited to chose any one of my books: Drizzled with Death, Maple Mayhem, A Sticky Situation or my latest, Whispers Beyond the Veil. Leave a comment by midnight to be entered in the contest!

The New England Crime Bake is a wonderful writers conference put on by the New England Chapter of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America in Dedham, MA and we will all be there! Here’s where you can find us:

Edith: I’m the Volunteer Wrangler, so I’ll be buzzing around everywhere making sure my awesome volunteers don’t need anything. I’m excited to be on the “Researching and Writing the Historical Mystery” panel, Saturday, November 12 • 10:10am – 11:00am, with Jessie and others. You’ll certainly find me on the dance floor at the banquet. And I’ll be helping out at the Sisters in Crime New England table from time to time, as well.

Liz: I’ll be buzzing around all weekend too – and my panel is also on Saturday, November 12 at 10:10 – 11 a.m. on “The Challenges of Writing Multiple Series,” moderated by our good friend Lucy Burdette. Looking forward to it!

Barb: I’ll be around all weekend, too. It will be weird not taking my turn manning the Level Best Books sales table. Kim Gray and the new team of editors will be doing that. I’m especially looking forward to welcoming the debut authors at Death, Desserts, and Debutants on Friday evening at 9:00 p.m, and to moderating, “Creating Your Town,” with William Kent Krueger, Sheila Connolly, Leslie Meier, and Marian McMahon Stanley at 3:10 on Saturday.

Sherry:  Since I no longer live in New England, I can’t be on a panel. However, I will be attending lots of panels — I always learn so much. Plus, I’ll be attending the banquet and perhaps I’ll make an appearance or two at the bar! It’s always a great time!

Jessie: As Edith pointed out above, I’ll be on a historical mysteries panel on Saturday morning with her as well as Ang Pompano, Emily Arsenault and Toby Ball. I’ll also be appearign on a panel on Saturday at 1:45pm call Traveling in Packs with Lisa Haselton, Kate Flora, Kevin Flynn, William Kent Krueger and Hank Phillippi Ryan.

Julie: I’m leading a Saturday session called “Reading Like a Writer”. We’re going to discuss The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie. On Sunday I am MCing the “Wheel of Why”. Sort of a game show about plots. Will report back.

  1. Yes, we’ll be everywhere! I am very much looking forward to being on a panel with GOH William Kent Krueger tomorrow, and the “Wheel of Why” on Sunday. If it’s anything like the event that Julie created a couple of years ago for the Boston Book Festival, it promises to be very funny!
