Mystery Lovers Unite

I am a member of Sisters in Crime. It is an eclectic group of mystery writers (published and unpublished) and fans.

Sisters in Crime was founded by Sara Paretsky and a group of women at the 1986 Bouchercon in Baltimore.
There are chapters all over the US and in Canada, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. I am part of the Northern California Chapter. They coordinate events where writers sign/read from their works as well as perform community service.

If you are an aspiring mystery writer, you may find their workshops and conferences useful. I attended an exciting luncheon with a forensic pathologist. Besides the informative, and graphic, presentation, she took any and all questions regarding murder and death.

If you are a mystery fan, you get the chance to see the mystery writing process from the inside, meet some writers, and participate in great activities like the upcoming GHOST WALK (more on that later in the week!)

I will be attending the Hollywood Conference to see if anyone wants to make Annie Kincaid into a screen star.

Don't forget to enter the PORTRAIT CONTEST. It only takes a minute to send me an email!! Also, check in at for all the latest and greatest news. We are adding links and fun stuff regularly!
