Attending Left Coast Crime is one of my favorite activities of the year. This year it will be in Reno, Nevada--an easy train ride away. For information on may panels and other participation, see http://www.leftcoastcrime.org/2018/index.html.
This is where Mystery Writers of American gives out announces the prestigious Edgar Awards. I've always wanted to attend this gala event in New York City, and decided this is a good year. I can't wait to share in the excitement!
I'll be on the East Coast the week of April 23 attending the Edgar Awards Banquet on Thursday, which meant it would be a quick hop to the fabulous Malice Domestic Conference in Bethesda, Maryland. For information: https://10times.com/malice
