Plymouth Readers Packed the Library

Tom Combs, Timya Owen, Brian Lutterman, Jessie Chandler, Lorrie Holmgren and Midge Bubany at the Plymouth Public Library

It was standing room only at Plymouth Library Tuesday, March 26 as enthusiastic mystery readers turned out for our Twin Cities Sisters in Crime Panel Discussion, “Ripped from the Headlines.” I joined Timya Owen, Brian Lutterman, Jessie Chandler, Tom Combs and Midge Bubany in talking about the ways that real life events inspire our fiction.  A friend’s real life adventure in the lava fields on the Big Island in Hawaii gave me the idea for a scene in Homicide in Hawaii. I shared this and many other ways I find ideas.  Thanks to all the readers who came.
