This was a small, but lively conference full of panels of great mystery authors like Harlan Coben, Leslie Glass, and Denise Swanson, along with lots of fans and aspiring writers-a perfect starter convention! I entered the short story contest and won first prize for my story PAYING THE PIPER. The stories had to take place in New Jersey and use a pen or ink as a clue.
