Past, Present and Future Events

Left Coat Crime 2019, Vancouver, Canada Memories

My March trip to Vancouver, BC, Canada was filled with great, and not-so-great experiences. Meeting writers, new readers, and fans is always the high point for me, and this conference was no exception. I enjoyed greeting those I knew, like Catriona McPherson, Simon Wood, Anne Cleeland, and Susanna Caulkins, and introducing myself again to those I met on Facebook or admired from a distance like James Ziskin, Carola Dunn, Lori Rader-Day, and Dru Ann Love. I also met my encouraging and supportive co-panelists Dale Berry, Margaret Dumas and Laura Andersen on my very first panel.

My friend, writer, and mentor Margaret Morse, and I, hosted a Banquet table and met an amazing group of readers. It was wonderful to hear how each of our guests related to our books.

On the downside, I caught a cold while I was there, which escalated into Bronchitis after I got home, and possibly the flu. It didn’t make me feel any better to discover I wasn’t the only one!

Malice Domestic 31, May 3-5, 2019

I will be attending my first Malice Domestic Conference in Bethesda, MD in less than two weeks. Luckily I’m beginning to feel human again, and expect to have a wonderful time. I won’t be traveling with Margaret this time and may just sit back and enjoy the hubbub. But please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself! I’ll be participating in my second-ever panel:

About Wendy Fallon

By day I am a technical writer, and by night and on weekends I am an artist and creative writer. Having lived in Phoenix, AZ with my husband Tim for 23 years, I find the urban wilderness in which we lived to be endlessly fascinating. Our home was tucked up against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal slashing across the base of the mountain provides inspiration for paintings, drawings, and sitings of wild coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards and constant change.
