If you love thrillers, and live anywhere (even kind of) close to Arizona, then you just hit the jackpot– as this year’s Tuscon Festival of Books will host some of the biggest names in the thriller genre!
The two-day event, which is held at The University of Arizona, will take place on March 12-13. A ton of authors are going to be there, with nearly all of them scheduled to speak about various writing topics either on panels or during private workshops.
Here’s a rundown of some of the biggest names that are scheduled to attend, with links to their scheduled events page:
Some of the most interesting panels that I’ve seen so far are:
“Laying Down the Law” (Ace Atkins, C.J. Box and Kyle Mills) Saturday, Mar 12, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm.
“Politics is Murder” (Joseph Finder, Kyle Mills and Chris Pavone) Saturday, Mar 12, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
“Collaborating in Crime” (J.T. Ellison, Anne Hillerman and Kyle Mills) Sunday, Mar 13, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
“High Voltage Suspense” (Jeffery Deaver, Joseph Finder, Chris Pavone) Sunday, Mar 13, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm.

You won’t find three better thriller authors than Kyle Mills, C.J. Box and Joseph Finder. Getting those three guys, especially, is huge. I’d give just about anything to there, but my schedule won’t permit it. If you live near by and plan to attend, leave a comment and let me know which panel or workshop you’re most looking forward to checking out!
