Which comes first, which is more important – plot, place, or people? Or does it matter? Each of Patricia Skalka's three mysteries began with a different source of inspiration. The first book, "Death Stalks Door County," grew from the setting (place); the second, "Death at Gills Rock," from the characters (people); and the third, "Death in Cold Water," from the idea or story concept (plot). In this craft talk, Skalka will trace the development of each novel from its starting point and, using these as examples, show how she gradually broadened the scope of the stories until they combined all three critical elements into the completed narratives. This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited to 18 participants.
