The next meeting of the Melbourne Chapter of Florida Writers Association is Wednesday, November 20th, 7-9 PM at Palm Bay Hospital, 1425 Malabar Rd. NE, Palm Bay, in the Cafeteria-Private Dining Room. (**see MEETINGS page for directions) 

7-8 PM  Program: “Confessions of a Crime Writer” by Carla Norton, FWA member

Carla is a novelist and bestselling true crime writer. Her recently released debut fiction, The Edge of Normal, won last year’s Royal Palm Literary Award for Best Unpublished Mystery. This year, the novel is in print across the globe and is earning starred reviews. Carla’s other books include two true accounts of notorious crimes: Disturbed Ground, which is available as an e-book, and Perfect Victim, which has remained in print for over 20 years. Perfect Victim is a true story of kidnapping and prolonged captivity. It was put on the reading list for the FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit and became a #1 New York Times bestseller. That extraordinary story also inspired Carla’s new crime fiction.
