Partners in Crime, the San Diego chapter of the national organization Sisters in Crime, welcomes best-selling author and local resident Alan Russell as speaker at our next meeting.
His subject will be What Comes After ‘The End?', a discussion of the writing and publishing process using his experience publishing fifteen books, including his latest, Gideon’s Rescue, fourth in the Gideon and Sirius mystery series.
Publishers Weekly calls Russell "One of the best writers in the mystery field today.” Russell is the award-winning author of fifteen mysteries that have ranged from whodunits to comedic capers to thrillers to psychological suspense. Coast to coast critical acclaim has greeted Russell's novels. The New York Times says, "He has a gift for dialogue," while the Los Angeles Times calls him, "A crime fiction rara avis."
