Entitled “Mastering Crime Fiction: A Whodunnit How-To,” the conference features guest speakers including authors Catriona McPherson, Timothy Hallinan, Mark Sullivan and Graham Brown, who will discuss various aspects of writing crime fiction.

The nonprofit organization will also honor writer Jenn McKinley as Guest of Honor during the Saturday luncheon. McKinley is author of a variety of cozy series, such as Sugar and Iced in her Cupcake Mysteries, and in her London Hat Shop Mysteries, her latest Death Of A Mad Hatter.

Also available for a $20 additional fee this year is a one-on-one critique of the first 15 pages and a synopsis by a Desert Sleuths published member. Participants will meet the Desert Sleuths member on Aug. 15, where writers will have the opportunity to bring their work for a personalized critique, which will be sent to the writer within two weeks following the conference.

Registration, which includes appetizers on Friday evening, a continental breakfast and plated lunch on Saturday, is $100 for members; nonmember registration is $125.

Sisters in Crime Desert Sleuths Chapter is part of an international organization that promotes professional development and advancement of women crime writers to achieve equality in the industry.
