Mystery-Thriller Saturday: An Afternoon of Chaos, Killing, Crime, and Kidnapping
Kepler's Books and Peninsula Arts & Letters presents:
Mystery-Thriller Saturday: An Afternoon of Chaos, Killing, Crime, and Kidnapping

Saturday, June 27, 1:00 - 5:00PM

Sponsored by Peninsula Arts & Letters, Kepler's Books, Mystery Writers of America (NorCal Chapter) and Sisters in Crime (NorCal Chapter)

Our first Mystery Thriller Saturday was such a good time we're doing it again. Two great panels and a chance to prove you know more about mysteries than our participating authors. Now that's a challenge you can't pass up!

Face-off -- Plotters Versus Pantsers
Do you outline before you start writing your book or do you just plunge in and write by the seat of your pants?

Outliners Paul Draker and Steve Hockensmith will face off against Cara Black and Catriona McPherson in crime fictions's version of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. This panel will be refereed by Janet Rudolph aka The Mistress of Mystery

It's Not Me, Babe
Writing about a character way different than you

Can you successfully walk in someone else's shoes? David Corbett, Seth Harwood, Terry Shames, and Laurie R. King will discuss the pleasures and pitfalls of writing characters who are very different to themselves. This panel will be moderated by Kepler's favorite, Keith Raffel

4:00 p.m.: Mystery Trivia

Join us in teams of two to four and put your knowledge of mysteries to the test! There will be prizes. There will be snacks. There will be much raucous laughter. There might even be a trophy.
