Once again New Jersey’s biggest little mystery conference is set to convene, this time from August 10-12 at the Marriott Renaissance in Woodbridge, New Jersey. Once again there will be workshops on Friday. (Watch this space for details.)
The Guest of Honor this year will be Meg Gardiner, thriller writer extraordinaire, whose work has been praised by the likes of Steven King and whose book, UNSUB, is even now being turned into a series on CBS.
Her latest book, INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE, is available wherever good thrillers are sold. You will, of course, want to come to the conference and get her to sign your copy.
The Toastmaster will be our own Roberta Rogow, author of four mystery novels in which the Rev. Mr. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) and young Dr. Arthur Conan Doyle collaborate as detectives, and two more set in post-Civil War New York City.
Her latest is MALICE IN MANATAS (Zumaya Publications, 2017), set in an Alternate Universe which she describes as “Last of the Mohicans meets Arabian Nights, with a Spanish accent.”
Roberta retired in 2008 from a 37-year career as a Children’s Librarian, leaving her free for writing, Sci-Fi costuming, and filking.
Volunteer! There are many little jobs to be done to help the conference run smoothly, and it’s a great way to make new friends.
