FEATURED SPEAKER

Jamie Mason

Jamie Mason Headshot

 

Mason is the author of the highly acclaimed, THREE GRAVES FULL, MONDAY’S LIE, and her latest, THE HIDDEN THINGS, all from Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books. THREE GRAVES FULL, about how a regular guy must scramble when a body is discovered on his property—and it’s not the one he buried there. THREE GRAVES FULL was recently optioned to Sony Pictures Entertainment. Mason will discuss her inspiration for these suspense-filled mysteries, and her journey from that first word on paper to TV option.

 

Jamie Mason was born in Oklahoma City and grew up all over the Washington, DC area. She’s most often reading and writing, but in the life left over, she enjoys films, Formula 1 racing, football, traveling, and, conversely, staying at home. Jamie lives with her husband and two daughters in the mountains of western North Carolina.
