Solving the Mystery of Mystery Writing
On Saturday, May 13, Writers Forum presents a duo of mystery authors, both with specialized experience as librarians, who will speak on the topic of mystery writing. Laura Hernandez and Sharon Owen will explain the mystery genre and all of its sub-genres, and offer tips on writing in the various crime categories, with examples from the presenters’ work and others.
Writers Forum President Laura Hernandez has won multiple writing contests with her legal novel manuscripts, and is actively marketing her books to agents. She is the current Shasta County Law Librarian, with degrees in Medical and Cultural Anthropology and a Juris Doctorate from Western State University College of Law.
Program Director Sharon Owen, writing as Sharon St. George, has a six-book publishing contract for her hospital-based Aimee Machado Mystery series with Camel Press of Seattle. Her fourth book will be released May 15, 2017. Owen is a former hospital librarian and medical staff coordinator with degrees in English and Theatre Arts from Western Connecticut State University.
