Creatures, Crimes & Creativity (C3) Con
The next Creatures, Crimes & Creativity Con is being held on September 8-10, 2017 at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center in Columbia, MD. Look for more information coming soon!
Our purpose is to gather readers and writers of all genre fiction; including mystery, suspense, thriller, horror, sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal etc.
We are thrilled to have New York Times Bestselling thriller author Peter Blauner as our first keynote speaker!
Peter Blauner started in journalism. He was a reporter for the Newark Star-Ledger and the Norwich Bulletin in Connecticut, and wrote for the New York magazine. In 1988 Blauner took a leave of absence from journalism and spent six months as a volunteer probation officer as research for his first novel Slow Motion Riot. It won the Edgar award, and was named an “International Book of the Year” in the Times Literary Supplement. For The Intruder, Blauner spent a year as a volunteer at a homeless shelter and visited the underground dwellings of “mole people” living beneath Manhattan’s Riverside Park. That novel was a New York Times bestseller. Blauner has been on the writing staff of three shows in the Law & Order franchise and was a co-executive producer of Law & Order: SVU. More recently, he has been writing as a co-executive producer for “Blue Bloods.” His next novel, Proving Ground, is scheduled for release in 2017.
