March 14. Mirth and Mystery with Diane Kelly. Want to make your mystery pack more punch? Humor could be just the tool you need to take your writing to the next level. In this workshop, Diane Kelly will discuss the many ways humor can make your writing more entertaining and engaging, regardless of your mystery subgenre. Diane will cover specific devices and techniques for adding humor to your manuscript, explain where humor can be the most effective and appropriate in your work, and review the main comedic character archetypes. Whether your work is light or dark, goofy or gritty, come find out what humor can do for you!
Diane Kelly is the author of the Death & Taxes white-collar crime series, the Paw Enforcement K-9 series, and the House Flipper cozy mystery series. Diane has studied humor extensively and taken a course in stand-up comedy, though she prefers the page to the stage. You can find Diane online at www.dianekelly.com, on Twitter and Instagram at @DianeKellyBooks, and on Facebook at her Author Diane Kelly page.
