John De Dakis
Wisconsin native John De Dakis, a senior copy editor on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, talks about how his 40-year career in journalism and other personal experiences have served as grist for two mystery novels. His riveting stories — Witnessing a car-train collision as a child, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, getting tear-gassed while covering an anti- Vietnam War riot at UW-Madison—leave no doubt that real-life adventures are a fruitful training ground for suspenseful fiction.

Books available for sale and signing at the event.
