Jeffery Deaver Comes to Boston

The local chapter of the Mystery Writers of America hosted a day-long talk with noted author Jeffrey Deaver, who spoke on the craft and business of writing mystery/crime fiction in the current market.

Here's two posters showing covers of the books published this last year by MWA members.
With Mike Johnson and Don Kaplan as seated greeters.

Thanks to Hans Copek for putting the posters together.  
Hey, look at the second one down on the far right- 
why, it's the cover of A Sharp Medicine, my fifth Zack Taylor mystery.

Of course we had other celebrities, like the ever-wonderful Hank Phillippi Ryan, who later took part as a panel member.

Since the talk was early, first we had to have some breakfast to meet and greet each other.

That's Dave Zeltserman on the far right, trying hard to stay out of the picture...

 There were guest author books galore to buy, 

Preliminaries over, we took our seats for the talk.

 Jeffrey Deaver took the mic...

The talk was informative and thorough, so many just had to pick up a book or more.
Here's John McIlveen getting his copy.

And Tom Lyons, owner of the Book Fair, gets a pic with the guest of honor.

After lunch, the panel of authors talked about their work and lives.
L to R- Peter Swanson, Jeffrey Deaver, Hank, and Leigh Perry.
