The Doyennes of Southwest Mystery with Nevada Barr, J A Jance and Margaret Coel. I have always enjoyed Barr's Anna Pigeon series set in various National Parks. The settings are so well described that I feel like I have already been to the parks or would now like to visit. A few of the magnificent parks, used almost as another character, include Guadalupe Mountains, Mesa Verde, Yosemite and Big Bend and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. There are several chances to see all three of these authors, so you can see which time slot fits with your plans.
Killing Me With A Smile with Craig Johnson and Dana Stabenow. A friend just recently got me hooked on Craig Johnson's series featuring Wyoming Sherriff Walt Longmire. I enjoyed the self-deprecating hero for both his humor and his outlook on life. I'm looking forward to making my way through the series. Johnson also will take part in a solo presentation Longmire & Me and another panel Death in the Desert. Stabenow is also scheduled for Who Dunnit? Plotting the Mystery.
Other Cultures, Other Crimes also sounds intriguing. This is a panel of three authors that I'm not familiar with: Hilary Davidson, Simon Wood, Alan Jacobson. Every year, I discover at least one author that I stumble upon by chance.
Strong Female Sleuths with Becky Masterman, Hilary Davidson and Jenn McKinlay.
Keeping it Cozy with Lisamarie Jelderks, Rebecca Hale and Jenn McKinlay.
