Writing the Cheat Free Mystery
There are all kinds of cheats and shortcuts writers can take when writing a mystery, but these methods can cheapen the genre and insult a reader's intelligence. In this presentation, author Gar Anthony Haywood covers all the ways to avoid such laziness and play fair with the reader in every possible way.
Gar Anthony Haywood is the Shamus and Anthony award-winning author of twelve crime novels, including the Aaron Gunner private eye series and Joe and Dottie Loudermilk mysteries. His short fiction has been included in the BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES anthologies and Booklist has called him "a writer who has always belonged in the upper echelon of American crime fiction." Haywood's next Aaron Gunner mystery, GOOD MAN GONE BAD, will be published by Prospect Park in Fall, 2019.
