Crime Writing Workshop

Had a blast last night at Ukazoo Books in Baltimore, putting on my 30-Minute Crime Writing Workshop. I read from Dope Thief, as well as from classic and favorite novels by Elmore Leonard, Lawrence Block, Raymond Chandler, George V. Higgins, Max Collins and Christa Faust. Attending writers then worked on guided exercises from different crime scenarios, and I gave away a copy of Dope Thief.

It was a lot of fun, and the group did amazing stuff with the assignments. It made me wonder how much murder folks carry around in their heads all day, just looking for an outlet.

Thanks to Olivia Tejeda and the whole gang at Ukazoo for setting up an excellent event.
