Tami Hoag Named as 2016 Writers’ Police Academy Guest of Honor

Tami Hoag named as 2016 WPA guest of honor


The Writers’ Police Academy is pleased to present our 2016
Guest of Honor, international bestselling author…
Tami Hoag!

With eighteen consecutive New York Times bestselling thrillers to her credit, Tami Hoag has more than 40 million books in print, published in more than thirty languages worldwide. A favorite of readers and critics alike, richly drawn characters and sharply written dialogue are the hallmarks of her work along with fast-paced plots and accurate police procedure.

Tami does not appear often so this is indeed a rare treat.


*The WPA is deeply committed to offering writers the finest and most authentic behind the scenes police, forensics, firefighting, and EMS training available anywhere in the world.

To further our goal of helping writers “get it right” we’ve moved to an international law enforcement training facility in Green Bay, Wi. Besides, we needed a spot to land our helicopter (doesn’t everyone?).

Wait, there’s more!

We’ve “doubled down” and made it possible for you to further enhance your WPA experience by choosing the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center as our event hotel.

The Green Bay Radisson is a modern hotel featuring multiple restaurants and the Oneida Casino where, after a fun day of cops and robbers, high speed pursuits, shootouts, and homicide investigations, you can choose to hang out with your friends at either or all of several bars, enjoy live entertainment, or play a few hands of blackjack. If that’s not enough there are plenty of slot machines to keep you busy!

So come for the ultimate research adventure at the WPA, or turn your trip into a weeklong fun vacation. Either way, the 2016 Writers’ Police Academy is THE experience of a lifetime!

We do hope to see each of you there.
