Melodie Campell gets called names! The Toronto Sun called her “Canada’s Queen of Comedy,” and Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine dubbed her the “Canadian literary heir to Donald Westlake”. We just call her awesome.

Join Melodie Campbell as she shows you how she does it (with examples) and breaks down the various types of humour you can include in your own work or merely enjoy in your reading. So whether you’re a reader or a writer, Melodie’s presentation promises to be filled with wit and wisdom.

Winner of 10 awards, including The Derringer (US) and the Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence, she has multiple bestsellers and was featured in USA Today. Her publications include over 100 comedy credits, 16 novels, and 60 short stories, but she’s best known for The Goddaughter mob caper series.
