Need some tips on building character? (The fictional kind, that is, not your own.) Join Sisters In Crime Sunday, January 10, 2016 at 2:15 to hear mystery writer Janice Hamrick for a fun and interactive session about the elements of creating rich and memorable characters.
Janice Hamrick is the author of the Jocelyn Shore mysteries and winner of the Mystery Writers of America/Minotaur Books First Crime Novel award. She recently took a year’s sabbatical to live in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she spent her time researching her next mystery series. (It is true that a great deal of that research took place inside pubs, but an author must be willing to make sacrifices for her art.)
Sisters in Crime: Heart of Texas Chapter meets monthly on the second Sunday at 2:15 p.m. at the Yarborough Branch Public Library. Speakers include published mystery authors and technical experts who help writers craft better mysteries and readers enjoy what they read. Meetings are free and open to all.
Sisters in Crime is an international organization of women and men whose mission is to promote the professional development and advancement of women crime writers to achieve equality in the industry.
