PRESENTER: Mark Stevens
Friday, May 5, 4:30-5:30

What ingredients do you need to write a mystery? What are the so-called "rules"? What do you need to know before you start? What are red herrings? What is the importance of side-kicks? How do develop clues? How do you keep the reader entertained? How do you keep the reader from guessing "who done it"? Mark Stevens will cover the core elements of the mystery genre and shed some light on the rules. If you don't know the rules, of course, you can't break them.
