Writing Mysteries: A Handbook by the Mystery Writers of America

Sue Grafton, Jan Burke, Barry Zeman, Mystery Writers of America

Writing mystery fiction can be a special kind of puzzle. In this new, revised edition of the Mystery Writers of America classic, Sue Grafton weaves the experience of today’s top mystery authors into a comprehensive mystery writing “how-to.” Writers will learn how to piece a perfect mystery together and create realistic stories that are taut, immediate and fraught with tension.

The book’s contributors include a “who’s who” of the mystery writing elite: Faye and Jonathan Kellerman on conducting accurate research; Michael Connelly on mastering characterization; Tony Hillerman on writing without an outline; Lawrence Block on overcoming writer’s block; Sara Paretsky on creating successful series characters; Tess Gerritson on writing the medical thriller; Ann Rule on the art of writing true crime. And many more!
