The event officially began Thursday, November 13, but activities related to the conference had started earlier in the week.
Author Patricia Coleman and I arrived early Wednesday morning. The temperature in Colorado was four degrees above zero. Stepping out of the airport into sixty degree temps and palm trees was a pleasant shock.
I was concerned that we were not in the main conference hotel. The Renaissance Hotel was four blocks away. When we checked in and looked out the window, we saw a wide brick pedestrian walkway extending from Ocean Boulevard to the conference venue. The well-lit walkway became quite familiar.
When we returned to our hotel, our third roomie, poet and author Maria Kelson had arrived. There was no late-night chatter. We were all exhausted from our travels, and the excitement of finally arriving at Bouchercon. I’ll tell you about kicking off my conference experience with volunteer duties in next week's blog.
