Sisters in Crime Presents Geoff Symon Forensics Talk

Thanks to our local chapter of the Sisters in Crime, we had a great seminar of Forensics for Fiction by expert Geoff Symon. For more than 20 years as a federal law enforcement special agent, Geoff Symon has been using his expertise and experience to put away the bad guys. Now he's begun lecturing and consulting with authors in genre fiction communities to help bring verisimilitude and meaningful detail to the depiction of crime and investigation.
What a great class it was. Those who write mysteries and crime should know the details of crime scenes and forensic evidence.
If you couldn't make the class, you can still get Geoff's books on various subjects.
Here's Edith Maxwell, local SinC chapter President and Lisa Haselton
They put this event together and made it a great day!

Here are books published by local Sisters in Crime members in the last year. 
Note the awesome cover for A Sharp Medicine, Top center on the left.

We had a full room of interested authors and guests





Geoff is an active, polished, and engaged speaker who likes to move around





While we got to sit and ask thousands of questions.





Then Geoff got to meet his new fans.
