Author Andrew Welsh-Huggins
The Art of Revision
“Is There a Draft in Here?”
Columbus, Ohio-based mystery author Andrew Welsh-Huggins will join us in October to share a few of his thoughts on the art of revising mystery fiction in three … or maybe seven … or sometimes 11 — or more — easy steps.
Andrew Welsh-Huggins is the author of seven mysteries featuring Andy Hayes, a former Ohio State and Cleveland Browns quarterback turned private eye. Welsh-Huggins is also the editor of the Columbus Noir anthology, featuring 14 short crime stories set in Columbus, Ohio. In addition, his short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Mystery Weekly, and Mystery Tribune. He also has penned two nonfiction books — No Winners Here Tonight, the definitive history of the death penalty in Ohio; and Hatred at Home, about the prosecution of three Ohio terrorist friends.
His story, “The Mailman,” included in the 2020 anthology, Mickey Finn 21st Century Noir, Vol. 1, is an International Thriller Writers 2021 best short story nominee. His “Long Drive Home,” published in Tough magazine, was included in the “Other Distinguished Mystery Stories” category in The Best American Mystery Stories 2019; and his story, “The Murderous Type,” won the 2017 Al Blanchard prize for best New England short crime fiction.
By day, Welsh-Huggins is a reporter for the Associated Press.
