Frances Thorsen, proprietor of Chronicles of Crime and connoisseur of crime fiction, will talk about her work as story editor for some of the up-and-coming names in crime fiction. Story editing will be of interest to all editors, though Frances’s focus is on crime fiction. She will give editors tips on working with crime writers and things crime writers need to pay attention to, and will talk about the trends of crime fiction (what works, what doesn’t).

Frances is an instructor of crime fiction writing and works for various publishers and individual authors as a story editor of crime fiction.
