To some, our desert may seem monotonous—saguaro after saguaro, with the occasional prickly pear. To these three Tucson Sisters in Crime fiction writers, our community and its surroundings offer endless ideas for conflict and crime—fictional, of course.
Spend a while with Kathy McIntosh, Susan Cummins Miller, and D.R. Ransdell, chatting about the short stories in SoWest: Wrong Turn and how the right setting can increase conflict. They’ll discuss what conflict is—and isn’t—and how setting affects not only conflict, but the characters, the plot, and the mood of the story.
