My husband and I drove from the L.A. area. It's a seven to eight hour drive, mostly through desert. I love desert landscapes. Maybe it's because I was born and raised in Southern California, but the desert resonates with me.
So, some photos of a great event. The first three photos were taken by Leslie Pape. I snapped the last four.
The "Blood and Guts--Violence in Crime Fiction" panel with L to R: Zoe Sharp, Cara Black, me, and Rebecca Cantrell
"The Seamy Side of Paradise: California Crime" with L to R: Thomas Perry, me, and T. Jefferson Parker.
"Against the Odds: Women in Jeopardy" with L to R: Juliet Blackwell, Wendy Corsi Staub, me, and Libby Fischer Hellman.
