I had the pleasure of being on a mystery author panel last evening at Towne Center Books in Collegeville, PA. The writers all belonged to the local chapter of Sisters in Crime. There was quite a range of talent there. Elena Santangelo, an Agatha winner, writes historical paranormal mysteries. J. J. Murphy launched his Algonquin Round Table mystery series with a book centering on writer Dorothy Parker. Jane Shaw writes YA mysteries. The audience was very well read when it came to mysteries. I was even able to sell a few books. Speaking of YA literature, I was wondering how adult authors make teenagers in their stories sound authentic in terms of speaking style and vocabulary. I don't have any young people at home, so it's difficult for me to listen to adolescents without being called a stalker. Just wondering in case I decide to write in this genre.
