You could be forgiven for not recognising how the two items in the title of this blog go together. In a rational world, they probably don’t. But I’m a writer, so rational doesn’t stand a chance against imagination, nor in this case, reality; and odd things happen when you go to conferences.
Suppose I should start for the top. Hello, I’m GB Williams. I write crime fiction. I’m even getting published later this year, but that’s not what this blog is about. Like a lot of writers, I attend writing conferences, and the most recent was CrimeFest 2017 in Bristol. When you hop between panels, paths cross, you meet people.
