Sleuthing at Sleuthfest

Sleuthing at Sleuthfest by Debra H. Goldstein
When I was a kid, my parents encouraged me to attend youth group, leadership and other educational conferences.  I loved them because invariably these gatherings enhanced my knowledge base and provided me an opportunity to meet new people.  The same proved true during my legal career and now as a writer. 
Writing conferences technically are divided into two groups:  those that are fan based and those that are craft oriented.  For me, participating in panels and talking to other writers and fans results in any differences blending.  Recently, I attended Sleuthfest in Florida.  There, I had the opportunity to moderate a panel, be a panelist, interact with many writers and readers, and become acquainted with members of the Guppy chapter who’ve merely been names on a List Serv. So, here’s a bit of my “Sleuthing at Sleuthfest:”

  1. The panel on Small Towns was great! Had a wonderful time at Sleuthfest catching up with the Gups and taking in all the informative sessions.
