Washington State University Vancouver’s Professional Writers Symposium introduces students and guests to award-winning writers from a variety of literary genres. On Thursday evenings from February through April, six Northwest writers will speak about the trajectory of their careers including their achievements and setbacks. Gain insight into the writing process and the ways these artists intersect with their creative communities. You may even find new ways to navigate your own literary career path.
Doing the Mystery Dance
Chelsea Cain is the New York Times best-selling author of the thriller detective novels “Heartsick,” “Sweetheart,” “Evil at Heart” and her latest, “Kill You Twice.” Pitting detective Archie Sheridan against serial killer Gretchen Lowell, these mysteries, set in Portland, Ore., combine taut psychological character studies with adrenaline-driven plots. Translated into 25 languages, two of these novels have been named among Stephen King’s top 10 favorite books of the year. “Heartsick” is now in development for television on FX.
“With Gretchen Lowell, Chelsea Cain gives us the most compelling, most original serial killer since Hannibal Lecter,” said Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club.
