For the last three days, I’ve been at the Public Safety Writers Association Conference in Las Vegas at The Orleans Hotel and Casino. I delivered a presentation on including the FBI in your novel, and also served on a panel about writing short stories. One of the contributors to our Women Warriors book, Michelle Perin, submitted her story in the writing competition and won! Kudos to Michelle. Her story describing the time when she was a police dispatcher while her police officer husband was involved in a shooting, was both compelling and touching.
Also, another contributor with two stories in the book, Amy MIchalik, won an award for a screenplay she wrote about Mexican drug cartels. She created a documentary that now looks like will possibly be picked up for a movie. Well done Warriors.
