Private Eye Dialog: Making It Better

At 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, I’ll give a short talk called “Mime and Dialog” at Bouchercon  in Long Beach, CA.  The session will be in Harbor A of the Convention Center, with plenty of time for questions.

Don’t worry, I won’t show up with my face painted white.  The gist of the presentation is how to give dialog in our P.I., mystery and other crime novels a little more muscle.

No sit-ups will be required.  Steroid use is discouraged.  On the other hand, coffee and input from other writers are welcome.

If you can’t make the session, say “hi” in the hall.


M. Ruth Myers writes the Maggie Sullivan mysteries featuring a woman P.I. in the 1930s/40s.
