About the Event
Are you a plotter, pantser, or plantser? Why can't you be all 3?
Do you love Agatha Christie or Flavia De Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley? Do you dream about getting away with murder between the covers of your own novel? Join author Shannon Symonds and get an inside look at the methods she uses to craft a mystery. You will come away with enough knowledge and tools to write a mystery of your own.
Shannon Symonds writes in an old house by the sea, where her 6 children, their children, and 30 or 40 of her closest relatives, and dogs come and go constantly. She loves laughter, a good mystery, running on the beach, deep sea fishing, and bonfires.
Shannon has worked for over 20 years as an Advocate serving survivors of abuse alongside law enforcement, as a home visitor supporting new mothers, and on other causes she is ridiculously passionate about. Shannon has been a hybrid author since 2014. She authored 263 articles for Deseret Digital Media under her name and with her daughter, blogs for Hilary Weeks Billion Clicks project, the Operation Underground Railroad’s volunteer newsletter between 2017 and 2020, and published her first book with Cedar Fort in 2017. Shannon received the Oregon Trial Lawyers Public Justice Award 2002 for the Tiffany Alvera Case that changed housing for victims nationally, and the 2002 Star Advocate Commendation from the Oregon Department of Justice.
