Next Up: Bill Crider

January 24th, 2010

If you haven’t gotten in yet on the discussion kicked off by Stephen Jay Schwartz (an outliner/advance plotter with a screenwriting background), go to the post directly beneath this one and weigh in.  Coming this Wednesday is our second guest, pantser deluxe Bill Crider.

Bill is the author of more than seventy novels and only the deity knows how many stories and articles, and the winner (twice) of the Anthony and Derringer Awards. He’s also been nominated for both a Shamus and an Edgar.  He’s got a lifetime of writing experience, and he’s generous with it.

In his other life, he was until recently the Chair of the Division of English and Fine Arts at Alvin Community College in Alvin, Texas.  Texas is also the setting of his long-running Sheriff Dan Rhodes mysteries, the first of which appeared in 1986.

You’re going to love Bill.

    I think I’ve heard of this guy, he was on a panel when I went to a mystery convention in Albuquerque, I think it was. Tony Hillerman was there. I never knew he wrote so many books, though. And in Texas they put English and Art in the same department? Goodness sakes.

    Derrick, Texas leads the way.
