Join highly-acclaimed crime writers Ellen Crosby (The Angels’ Share) and Art Taylor (The Boy Detective & The Summer of ’74 and Other Tales of Suspense) as they discuss their newest books, creating complex characters, and writing crime fiction.

“Crisp and elegant. The disparate plot threads come together in an exciting and satisfying conclusion. Crosby knows how to keep the reader guessing.” – Publishers Weekly

“’English 398: Fiction Workshop’ is the academic short story I didn’t know I wanted, but want it I did indeed. How [Taylor] weaves contemporary social issues into his stories without seeming contrived is a true gift.” —Kristopher Zgorski, BOLO Books
