It’s that time of year again when mystery writers from around the world will all convene in one lucky city for the world’s largest crime and mystery conference, Bouchercon. And for those of you lucky enough to be attending who might be foolish enough to socialize with me, here’s a schedule of where to find me. Hint, it will mostly involve the bar!

Thursday, September 6th


“License to Snoop: Attending PI School.” in room “Royal 3AB”

I will be moderating this panel, which includes some of the biggest names in detective fiction. Join me for an amazing conversation with my fellow and former private investigators/authors:

Michael Koryta

Donna Andrews

Sean Chercover

Jack Sorren


Noir at the Bar, Marchlands in the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel

I will obviously be a spectator for this one, but find me with friend and fellow Noir at the Bar Dallas organizer/host for the Bouchercon 2019 edition Eryk Pruitt in the crowd, getting our drank on. Some of the biggest names in the noir genre are on the bill, including Lawrence Block, Christa Faust, Reed Farrel Coleman, Rob Hart, Hillary Davidson, and more.
