Novelist Anne Perry will not appear in person at the Central Coast Writers Conference this weekend, where she was scheduled to be the keynote speaker, conference organizers said. Because of an “unforeseen problem with her travel documents,” Perry could not travel from Scotland to the Central Coast for the conference and will instead appear via virtual technology for her three scheduled presentations, according to CCWC Director Judy Salamacha. These include “Anne Perry in Discussion with Victoria Zackheim” and “Women’s Voices” on Friday and the workshop “Plotting to Enhance Your Backstory” on Saturday. Perry is a Scotland-based novelist known for her two series of historical detective novels. She was named one of the London Times’ “100 Masters of Crime” for the 20th Century.
