Saturday, August 1 the Virginia Writers Club Annual Symposium will be held in The Dickinson Fine & Performing Arts Center at Piedmont Virginia Community College in Charlottesville, Virginia. From 8am to 3pm the agenda includes panel discussions, workshops, a book fair and signing.
Renown Virginia author, Diane Fanning, will be a panelist for the session titled “Crime Does Pay,” along with nonfiction crime author, Dan Moldea. Fanning is the author of 23 traditionally published books. She has been honored as a nominee for the coveted Edgar Award, as well as the Defender of the Innocent Award from the Illinois Innocence Project for her part in exposing evidence which allowed a wrongful conviction to come to true justice.
Subjects of her true crime books include such high-profile crimes as the Michael Peterson murder case in North Carolina (Written in Blood), the Caylee Anthony case in Florida (Mommy’s Little Girl), and the Virginia murder of Jocelyn Earnest (Under Cover of the Night).
Fanning’s fiction includes the Lucinda Pierce detective series set in Virginia, and her latest World War II era series set in Oak Ridge, Tennessee during the Manhattan Project (Scandal in the Secret City).
Born in Baltimore, Diane Fanning spent years in Virginia before moving to Texas where her writing career took shape, and recently returned to Virginia living in the scenic area near the Blue Ridge Mountains. She has appeared regularly on the Today Show, 48 Hours, 20/20, Forensic Files, Snapped, the Biography Channel, Investigation Discovery, E!, and the BBC, as well as numerous cable network news shows and radio stations across the States and Canada.
