Panel at Thrillerfest

NEW YORK CITY (Sunday, July 11) – The panel discussion at Thrillerfest went much, much better than I’d feared. The topic was “Success or Failure: Which Teaches You More?” A topic so dull, I feared the number of people in the audience would not exceed the number of people on the panel.

But we drew more than 40, which was great.

Moderator Steven James did a terrific job leading the conversation.

The comment I heard over and over again was: “You guys were entertaining!”

Hey. There is nothing that drives me crazier than a bunch of mystery writers who actually take themselves seriously.

The other panelists were authors C.E. Lawrence, Deborah Ledford, Katia Lief and David Salkin.

Nice job, y’all.
