ETSU’s Office of Professional Development will present the Buffalo Mountain Writers Workshop for Mystery Writers on Sept. 20, from 6:30-8 p.m. and on Sept. 21, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in Room 101 of Rogers-Stout Hall.
The program will focus on writing mystery fiction, including pieces for magazines and journals, as well as mystery novels.
The workshop features Molly MacRae, author of the recently released national bestseller “Dyeing Wishes.” She is a long-time writer of mystery fiction who has published short stories in “Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine” and four mystery novels. Her fifth book, scheduled for release in early 2014, is the third in her Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery series published by Penguin Books.
“Last Wool and Testament,” the first book in MacRae’s Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries, won the 2013 Lovey Award for Best Paranormal/Sci-Fi Novel, was named the “Suspense Magazine” Best of 2012 and was Salt Lake County Library’s Reader’s Choice Award Nominee.
In addition to writing three books over the past two-and-a-half years, MacRae is employed full-time at the Champaign (Ill.) Public Library. She previously lived in Johnson City and Jonesborough, where she was director of the Jonesborough-Washington County History Museum and manager of The Book Place.
The registration fee is $65. For more information, call (800) 222-3878 or visit www.etsu.edu/professionaldevelopment.
