As I said, the conference was wonderful. My interview with Margie Orford went well, and she was so interesting to talk to. My other panels were great too. I sat in on a few others as well: one talking about writing for TV, another on balancing crime-writing and motherhood (not that I have any plans, nosirree), a third featuring forensic specialists talking about how they'd go about processing a crime scene and analysing evidence. But perhaps the best aspect of any event like this is catching up with old friends and making new ones, and I'd like to say thanks and hi to all those people :)
In other news, the page proofs of Silent Fear are finally done and on their way back to the publisher (which is why it's taken me a week to write about the Davitts!) and I'm working hard on book 6. And I'd better get back to it! But before I go, if you're an aspiring writer check out my friend Ian Irvine's blog, where he's discussing the truth about publishing and sharing his top tips on storytelling too.
