Nikki Trionfo to Present on Writing Mysteries Into any Genre
Lurking intrigue keeps pages turning, even if there’s not a dead body in the drawing room next to a rolling pin. All genres benefit from a sense of wonder and puzzlement. Mystery author Nikki Trionfo will teach tricks learned from agent Josh Geztler about doling out teasing information, handling clue-threads and red herrings, and tying up a mystery’s loose ends. Even if your story isn’t a crime novel, give your readers a satisfying finish to the teasers that make them pick your book up off the shelves in the first place.
Nikki Trionfo lives in Riverton, Utah with five kids, a CrossFit-training husband who writes computer code, and lots of hip hop background music. Her teen murder mystery SHATTER won grand prize in LDStorymakers’ First Chapter Contest and first place in League of Utah Writers’ YA manuscript category. She’s the Public Relations Director for the largest writing conference in Utah, Storymakers Conference, and used to handle their after-hours parties. Alongside Heather Clark, she hosts free writing webinars on YouTube at #50FirstChapters. Other notable stuff includes an honorable mention in Writers of the Future and a spot in Utah Horror Writer’s short-story anthology. This all sounds really serious, but if you run into her, she gets down. Truly.
