The Mystery in Romance Writing, and the Romance in Mystery Writing

The Sisters in Crime chapters of San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles invite you to a special discussion with Heather Graham and Marcia King Gamble on July 11 at 3:00, Pacific Time.

What are the essential elements? Heather is a bestselling author and has written more than 200 books. She’s been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Romance Writers of America, as well as a Thriller Master Award from International Thriller Writers. She’s written more than 200 books.
