As the program chair for the Public Safety Writers Association annual conference, I am so proud of the great caliber of speakers we're going to have. Every day I'm going to tell you about one of them.
Today, I want to tell you about our keynote speaker, Simon Wood.
His topic will be: “Creating Suspense.”
Simon Wood is an ex-racecar driver, a licensed pilot and an occasional private investigator. He shares his world with his American wife, Julie. Their lives are dominated by a longhaired dachshund and five cats.
He's had over 150 stories and articles published. His short fiction has appeared in a variety of magazines anthologies, such as Seattle Noir, Thriller 2 and Woman’s World. He's a frequent contributor to Writer's Digest. He's the Anthony Award winning author of Working Stiffs, Accidents Waiting to Happen, Paying the Piper and We All Fall Down. As Simon Janus, he's the author of The Scrubs and the forthcoming, Road Rash. His next thriller, Disgruntled, will be out next April. Curious people can learn more at www.simonwood.net.
I've met Simon and he's a most friendly author.
