Executive Protection

By Larry D. Bergsgaard

 

Mr. Bergsgaard spent nearly thirty years in law enforcement. He began his career as a Special Agent with the U. S. Treasury and ended with retirement as a Special Agent In Charge at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Mr. Bergsgaard had the good fortune to experience assignments including undercover and covert operations, international criminal conspiracies, SWAT, and executive protection details to name but a few.

In the Executive Protection presentation, Mr. Bergsgaard will describe some of his personal experiences while participating in protection details of Presidents, Vice Presidents, their families, political candidates, and other VIPs. He will discuss some of the behind-the-scenes preparations and commonly used strategies and tactics. While ever mindful of not disclosing details that would jeopardize any protectee, Mr. Bergsgaard will share a rare insider’s account of what we view on television when a protectee being escorted by those men and women wearing the ubiquitous sunglasses.

Upon retiring, Mr. Bergsgaard began a new adventure taking pen in hand and writing novels. To date, he has penned and published nine novels and a collection of short stories. The foundation of his stories is largely based upon his investigative experiences although the names are always changed to protect the guilty. During his presentation, Mr. Bergsgaard will examine an account from his novel, Next Year In Jerusalem, when the First Lady and her son are attacked by terrorists.

All-Day Event!

Shannon Baker

Author of the Kate Fox Mysteries and the Nora Abbott Mysteries

 

Readers enter a novel to be transported to another world. Without deep point of view, the story becomes like something a stranger relates while you’re stuck together in a doctor’s waiting room. With deep point of view, readers dive into the story and lose track of themselves to see the world through your character’s eyes. What are tricks, tips, and craft to create this magical experience for your readers?

Join Shannon Baker in our morning session to discover how to entice readers with deep point of view. Every character, like every individual, has a unique view of the world. What they notice and how they interpret it—down to word choice—is vitally important. Learn how to keep your characters true to themselves and keep readers turning pages.

The afternoon workshop will have participants writing paragraphs about specific situations through the eyes of the same character. Through a series of writing exercises, participants will then explore how to filter story through their own characters. The exercises should demonstrate how, when presented with the same scenario—just like with people—every character will have a different take on any given situation. By the session’s end, participants should walk away with the tools for creating individuals and detecting stereotypes.

Shannon Baker is the author of the Kate Fox Mystery series set in rural Nebraska cattle country, and the Nora Abbott Mystery series, a fast-paced mix of Hopi Indian mysticism, environmental issues, and murder. Now a resident of Tucson, Shannon spent 20 years in the Nebraska Sandhills, where cattle outnumber people by more than 50 to 1.

Shannon is proud to have been chosen Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ 2014 and 2017 Writer of the Year.

A lover of the outdoors, Shannon can be found backpacking in the Rockies, traipsing to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, skiing mountains and plains, kayaking lakes, hiking, cycling, and scuba diving whenever she gets the change. Arizona sunsets notwithstanding, Shannon is, and always will be, a Nebraska Husker. Go Big Red!
