John DeDakis, a former editor with CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, is the guest at this month’s meeting of the Charles County Chapter of the Maryland Writers’ Association.
This month’s meeting is scheduled for Jan. 15 at 7pm in Room 214 (not our usual 124) of the BI building on the La Plata campus of the College of Southern Maryland.
DeDakis has written mystery-suspense novels, Fast Track and Bluff. His third novel, Troubled Water, will be published in February.
For our meeting, he’ll combine two of his presentations, “From Journalist to Novelist (Or How I Learned to Start Making it Up)” and “How to Write a Novel,” a practical guide to lead you from the first glimmer of an idea to a published work.
