Author Conversation: Lori Rader-Day & Libby Hellmann

Join Lori and Libby for a conversation about mysteries, the craft of writing, and why they're thrilled when people tell them they couldn't get any sleep after reading their books. Thirty-five years ago, Libby Fischer Hellmann left a career in broadcast news in Washington, DC, and moved to Chicago, where she began to write gritty crime fiction, and output that now includes twelve novels and twenty short stories. Her newest novel, Jump Cut, continues the Ellie Foreman series. She is also the author of the Georgia Davis PI series and three stand-alone historical thrillers. In 2005, Libby was the national president of Sisters In Crime, an organization dedicated to the advancement of female crime fiction authors. Lori Rader-Day, author of The Black Hour and Little Pretty Things, is a two-time Mary Higgins Clark Award nominee and the recipient of the 2014 Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Lori's short fiction has appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery magazine, Time Out Chicago, Good Housekeeping, and other publications. She lives in Chicago, where she teaches mystery writing at StoryStudio Chicago and serves as the president of the Midwest chapter of the Mystery Writers of America. Her third novel, An Elegant Hand, will be released in spring 2017.
