International Conference

From left: Mystery writer Terry Carroll, Science fiction writer Suzanne Church, Sci-fi writer and aerospace engineer Eric Choi, and yours truly Dennis Collins. We are shown here sharing our experiences dealing with small publishers.

It was another successful year for the Lambton County Library's Genrecon. This year's guest of honor was mystery writer and musician Rick Blechta. Rick has written six mystery novels and all of them include some part of the music world. Rick is a friendly fellow with a great sense of humor and an easy smile. You can see more about him at

I had the pleasure of participating in four of the panels that day. One of them was especially fun when the moderator (Jeff DeLuzio) assigned the audience the task of writing a paragraph or two based on selected photographs. Some of the offerings were professional quality.

After the conference we all gathered at a riverfront restaurant on the St. Clair River for cocktails and a fine dinner.

I'm looking forward to the first weekend in May next year when I can do it again.
