If you’ve followed the blog for awhile, you know how foundational the New England Crime Bake writers’ conference is for the Wicked Authors. Some of us met there. Some of cemented our friendships while spending time there. All of us moved from hopeful wannabe writer to published author as a part of this community, moving from one side of the panel table to the other, as it were, in a rite of passage.
This year all of us will be at the conference hotel in Dedham, MA. Please come up and say hello when you see us floating by.
Specifically, you can find us in the following places.
Julie and Barb have pre-recorded online sessions for the conference. They will become available before the conference and will stay accessible for conference registrants for 90 days afterward.
Tuesday, October 25, Julie Hennrikus‘s (Julia Henry‘s) online session, entitled, “Starting Your Book: Inspiration, Ideas, Implementation,” is currently available to conference registrants.
Tuesday, November 8, (Today), Barbara Ross‘s online session, entitled, “Story Structure for Crime Fiction,” will be released.
Saturday, November 12, at 9:00 a.m., in-person, Jessie Crockett (Jessica Ellicott) and Edith Maxwell (Maddie Day), will appear on the panel, “Historical Mysteries.”
Saturday, November 12, at 11:45 a.m., Edith Maxwell (Maddie Day) will be signing the anthology, Deadly Nightshade: Best New England Crime Stories, along with the other authors who have stories in the book.
Sherry Harris will be at the conference, in and out of sessions, in the hallway, and the bar. Liz Mugavero (Cate Conte) will also be at the hotel. Please be sure to say hello.
It’s the first time the six of us have been together since covid, so we’re excited. Yes, we’ll be sure to take a photo.
