New Featured Author-in-Residence: SJ Rozan
We have important news about the Novel-in-Progress BookCamp to share. We have a switch in the featured Author-in-Residence. It turns out that Reed Farrel Coleman, who had been scheduled to teach, has a new book launching that same week that he has to attend to (congrats, Reed!).
But he helped secure an immediate & amazing replacement: Reed’s own mentor, SJ Rozan, a two-time Edgar Award winner!

SJ Rozan’s work has won multiple awards, including the Edgar, Shamus, Anthony, Nero, and Macavity, and also the Japanese Maltese Falcon. She’s written fourteen novels, thirteen under her own name and one, with Carlos Dews, as the writing team of Sam Cabot. Many of her dozens of short stories have appeared in various “Best Of” collections, and she’s edited two short-story anthologies.
Based in New York, she teaches and lectures widely including in New York at Crime Fiction Academy (http://centerforfiction.org/forwriters/crimefiction/) and during the summer in Assisi, Italy at Art Workshop International (http://www.artworkshopintl.com/) and has been a Master Artist at The Atlantic Center for the Arts and a Writer-in-Residence at Singapore Management University.
Her newest book is Sam Cabot’s Blood of the Lamb.
Praise for her novels:
“Okay, listen up: This woman can write! S.J. Rozan paints with the full palette of the human heart, using depth, detail and nuance of character that I haven’t seen since Raymond Chandler. (Yes, I mean it.)”
– Robert Crais on Winter and Night
“S.J. Rozan can write sentences that make my jaw literally drop. She’s as good a prose stylist as I’ve seen in a long, long time.”
– Dennis Lehane
“Smart, crisp writing… remarkable sense of place… a sumptuous feast for jaded palates.”
– The New York Times on A Bitter Feast
“A transcendent novel… Rozan’s soaring imagination is breathtaking.”
– Jeffrey Deaver on Absent Friends
