Have you ever read a gripping news story or had a fascinating experience and thought, “This would make a great novel?” Anne Da Vigo, author of the new thriller, Thread of Gold, will show you how to craft a fictional work using actual people, events, and settings. This presentation, offered recently by Anne and other panelists at Florida’s Other Words conference, will include examples from her novel, inspired by a decades-old clipping from the New York Times. Bring paper and pen for a short writing exercise.
Anne Da Vigo is a former police reporter and newspaper feature writer. She is also a long-time short story writer and critique group participant. Her work has appeared in literary journals and won prizes for another upcoming thriller. Her first novel, Thread of Gold, was acclaimed as follows by Kirkus Reviews, “Stop the presses! An appealing crime fiction heroine is born.”
The California Writers Club–Sacramento Branch Networking Meeting is held the first Friday of every month at Coco’s Restaurant, 7887 Madison Avenue, Citrus Heights, at the corner of Madison and Sunrise, starting at 9 a.m. Meetings are free. Attendees pay for their own breakfast.
