Gather on the shores of beautiful Green Lake with others who love a mystery. Meet and learn from five award-winning mystery authors. Author D.C. Brod will approach the myth to plotting and writing engrossing fiction. Authors Ted Hertel and Gary Warren Niebuhr will open the doors to your week of mystery adventure. Film expert Terry Faherty takes you on a fascinating examination of the clues and helps solve the mystery neither Chandler or Marlowe could solve. For those fans of the "cozy" mystery novels, we have author Maggie Ley-Hertel help fill you in on all the details. Enjoy an up-close-and-personal interaction with these authors and discussions of all things mysterious.
