Authors Panel: Make Mine Murder

Join us for an authors panel featuring Connecticut crime and mystery writers. This panel, organized by Sisters in Crime--Connecticut, celebrates National Library Week!

Authors Panel: Make Mine Murder
Four Connecticut crime writers discuss how they write their books--where their ideas come from, how they plot the twists and turns, and how they develop their characters.

Panelists: Christine Falcone, Ang Pompano, Shari Randall, Korina Moss

Christine Falcone's short stories have appeared in publications such as ImagineLancrom Review, and Deadfall: Crime Stories by New England Writers.

She is a member of Sisters In Crime and Mystery Writers of America. She lives on the Connecticut Shoreline with her family and a dog, who is not nearly as well behaved as Bruno, the beloved canine in her novel.

Ang Pompano's stories have appeared in many anthologies, including the Anthony Award-winning Mystery Most Edible. His novel When It’s Time for Leaving was nominated for an Agatha Best First Novel Award. Diet of Death is his latest novel.
