This coming August, the Killer Nashville Thriller, Mystery, and Crime Literature Writer's Conference is proud to offer mystery and thriller lovers a chance to meet internationally bestselling author Anne Perry and award-winning author/forensic consultant D.P. Lyle.

Selected by "The Times" as one of the 20th Century’s “100 Masters of Crime,” Anne Perry is the author of what is arguably the longest sustained crime series by a living writer. Perry’s publishing career began in 1979 with THE CATER STREET HANGMAN, the first book in a popular series featuring Victorian policeman Thomas Pitt and his well-born wife Charlotte. In 1990, Anne started a second series of equally lauded detective novels. None of her books has ever been out of print, and they have received critical acclaim and huge popular success: over 26 million books are in print worldwide. Her books have appeared on bestseller lists in a number of foreign countries.

Cardiologist D.P. Lyle, MD is an award-winning fiction author, but he may be best known among crime fiction authors for his reference books for writers. These include FORENSICS FOR DUMMIES, HOWDUNIT FORENSICS, MURDER AND MAYHEM: A DOCTOR ANSWERS MEDICAL FORENSICS QUESTIONS FOR MYSTERY WRITERS, and FORENSICS AND FICTION: CLEVER, INTRIGUING, AND DOWNRIGHT ODD QUESTIONS FROM CRIME WRITERS. Lyle has served as a consultant for many novelists, as well as with the writers of popular television shows such as "Law & Order," "CSI: Miami," "Diagnosis Murder," "Monk," "Judging Amy," "Peacemakers," "Cold Case," "House," "The Glades," and "Pretty Little Liars." He is a winner of the Macavity Award and a nominee for the Edgar, Agatha, Scribe, and USA Best Book Awards.

Perry and Lyle will each have an interview, presentation and book signing on Saturday, August 24. Later that evening, attendees may join them at a special dinner in their honor with a performance by the Pink Cadillac Band with Mark Miller, formally of the Grass Roots.

Killer Nashville 2013 will be held on August 22-25, 2013 at the Hutton Hotel & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. As admission for the conference is limited, free literary agent introductions and other activities will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Killer Nashville, held annually on the fourth weekend in August, was created in 2006 by author/filmmaker Clay Stafford to bring together forensic experts, writers, and fans of crime and thriller literature. A truly international writers conference, the U.S. and three foreign countries have been represented by conference attendees.
