Join Me at Summer School

Feb 07, 2011

The University of Toronto has asked me to lead its one-week intensive Mystery and Suspense course this summer, July 4-8.

Previous instructors of this course include Peter Robinson and Giles Blunt, a group I’m honoured to be part of.

We’ll cover everything from the history of the genre to ways of making your writing more, well, mysterious and suspenseful.

I hope you’ll join me!
