We are thrilled to have international thriller author K.J. Howe back to speak at our Sisters in Crime monthly meeting. This time her topic will be on Self-Editing.

Originally from Toronto, Howe found success in the corporate world before earning a Masters in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She has been nominated and won several writing awards, including three Daphne du Maurier Awards for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense. She is also the Executive Director of ThrillerFest, the International Thriller Writers’ annual conference held every July in New York City.

While writing The Freedom Broker, which focuses on elite kidnap negotiator Thea Paris, Howe researched the dark world of kidnapping, interviewing former hostages, negotiators, hostage reintegration experts, special forces operatives, and K&R (Kidnap and Ransom) insurance executives. The next in the series, Skyjack, takes Thea Paris from Nairobi to London and involves the CIA, the Vatican, the Sicilian mob, and a secret stay-behind army from the Second World War.
