OK, so I'm rarely in jeopardy, but I write woman-in-jeopardy novels—otherwise called "Modern Gothics"—and this is my blog. It will probably have lots of time between posts, but I'll try not to bore you. Welcome.

Making Plans: The Surrey International Writers' Conference

Registration has just opened for this year's conference in beautiful Surrey, British Columbia.

A 3 day event, running from Friday, October 21st through Sunday October 23rd, 2011, the Surrey International Writers' Conference has been called the best writers’ conference in North America by presenters and participants alike, and this year I'm honoured to be one of those presenters, joining ranks with an incredible group of authors, agents and editors, everyone from Diana Gabaldon and Anne Perry to Meg Tilly and Donald Maass.

And it's all taking place at the beautiful Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel, in itself a good reason to book an escape for the weekend!

I'll be giving talks on Dialogue and Research, and taking part in a panel discussion called "History Hints" with Jack Whyte, Margaret George, and Anne Perry.

There's also a Book Fair on Saturday evening that's free to the public, so even if you aren't a registrant this year, you still can come out and get books signed (or just say "hello").

Hope to see you there.
