Sisters in Crime is a national organization dedicated to supporting women mystery writers. The public is welcome to join this monthly meeting. Katy Munger's subject: First Things First: Writing the Best Book You Can Write. She will help us decide why we want to write this particular book, what success means, how to capture & find our voice, and which viewpoint to choose to make that happen. She'll focus on making the most of the written medium rather than attempting to put television on pages, and review mistakes that writers who were raised on movies and television often make. The talk will be useful not just to people who have not yet started a new book but also to those who are currently working on one.
Katy is a North Carolina-based author of the Dead Detective series, writing as Katy Munger (Angel of Darkness) and as Chaz McGee (Desolate Angel and Angel Interrupted); the Casey Jones crime fiction series writing as Katy Munger; and the Hubbert & Lil mystery series, writing as Gallagher Gray.
