Susan Spann - Writing a Killer Mystery 

This time on the podcast we welcome back RMFW Writer of the Year Susan Spann, author of the forthcoming The Ninja’s Daughter.

Susan is giving a master class at Colorado Gold in September and she’s here this time to give us a sneak peek of that class, Writing a Killer Mystery.

Susan talks about the key elements every mystery writer needs—the crime, the sleuth, clues, the setting, how to ramp up tension and much more.
