Virtual Event: Cameo Conversations: An Inside Look at Fiction, Journalism, and the Mysteries of Both!

with Hank Phillippi Ryan

How does an Emmy-winning reporter become a best-selling author of fast-paced murder mysteries? And how does a just-the-facts journalist add mystery fiction to her resume–and juggle being a reporter, an author, a wife and a grandmother? Hank Phillippi Ryan has managed to mix the worlds of fact and fiction–in an amazing career from radio reporter to Rolling Stone Magazine to undercover investigations at Boston's WHDH-TV. The craziness, the fun, the stress–and how she ended up where she is at age 70.

Hank Phillippi Ryan is a USA Today bestselling author of 12 thrillers, winning the most prestigious awards in the genre: five Agathas, three Anthonys, the Daphne, and the coveted Mary Higgins Clark Award. She is also the on-air investigative reporter for Boston's WHDH-TV, with 37 EMMYs and dozens more journalism honors. Book critics call her “a master of suspense.” Hank’s newest book: The Murder List, an Agatha, Anthony and Mary Higgins Clark Award nominee. Coming Aug. 4: The First to Lie and the Publishers Weekly starred review says "Stellar… Hank Phillippi Ryan could win a sixth Agatha with this one."
