This coming Saturday—March 3—the Colorado Book Festival descends on the downtown Denver Public Library with over 100 authors and a whole day of talks and panels and writers with their books on hand to sale.

The day is organized by the Colorado Authors League but there is good representation from Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, including Chris Goff moderating a panel at 2 p.m. It’s called Why Mysteries Are Popular During Fraught Times and her panelists include Carter Wilson and Manuel Ramos.

We’ve got Chris on the podcast to give us a sneak peak about that very topic. She also talks about the tough situation she’s currently in with her writing career—she’d rather keep going with her new series of international thrillers but her publisher is encouraging another direction.

Chris Goff is the award-winning author of six mystery novels and two international thrillers. The bestselling Birdwatcher's Mystery series was nominated for two WILLA Literary Awards and a Colorado Author's League Award. Her debut thriller, Dark Waters is set in Tel Aviv amid the Israel-Palestine conflict and was a finalist for a Colorado Book Award, a Colorado Authors’ League Award and the Anthony Award for Best Crime Audiobook. Her most recent release, Red Sky, is set in Ukraine and Asia where DSS Agent Raisa Jordan tests the boundaries of diplomacy as she races to prevent the start of a new Cold War.
