Love this cover art by Chris Lang

November 2016 will see two of my stories appearing, along with those of 17 other Canadian crime writers, in the new anthology from Canadian Sisters in Crime.

A Death at the Parsonage

1823 England: When a not-very-well-liked clergyman dies a suspicious death while preparing his Sunday sermon, a quick-witted lady turns detective to come to the aid of her friend.

Family Traditions

Stuck in the kitchen on the biggest turkey-and-football day of the year, a long-suffering housewife takes a new look at sacred family traditions.

 

The launch….

Our big launch is on Sunday, November 27th at 2:00PM, at the fantastic Sleuth of Baker Street bookstore at 907 Millwood Rd, Toronto

Wine, readings, author signings and nibblies will all be happening. And of course, you can buy the hard copy there.

After a busy and exciting spring, having three new short stories accepted for crime anthologies, I got word in September that a FOURTH story has been added to the mix.

Historically Speaking: I’m thrilled to learn my story “The Lady’s Maid Vanishes” has been accepted for inclusion in the anthology, Mystery Most Historical , to be published in time for the 2017 Malice Domestic mystery conference.

More She-Bang: November 2016 will see two of my stories appearing, along with those of 17 other Canadian crime writers, in the new anthology, The Whole She-Bang 3

Swimming with the Guppies: My short story “Gossip” will be included in the next Guppy crime anthology, Fish Out of Water.

The Guppies are a Sisters in Crime group of writers whose first three anthologies all have a distinctly fishy flavour.


 The Lady’s Maid Vanishes

1931 in the Canadian Rockies. When her maid goes missing from the viceregal entourage while travelling through the Rockies, Lady Byng, wife of the Governor General, is determined to find out the truth.

Yes, it’s official. I’ve turned to a life of crime.  My short story “Poetic Justice” is being included in the newest  anthology from Canadian crime writers, The Whole She-bang 2.

Following the 2011 success of the first book, The Whole She-Bang, the Canadian members of Sisters in Crime decided to publish a second anthology of crime stories by Canadian writers, from first offenders to hardened veterans.

The Whole She-Bang 2

The Whole She-Bang 2

Editor Janet Costello and her crew have pulled together 24 stories ranging from cosy to noir, from deadly serious to dying laughing.  I’m thrilled to be included among such a talented crew of sisters and brothers.

What other writers are saying….

The Whole She-Bang 2 is wonderful! With accomplished short stories that range from hilarious to gruesome to downright unsettling, this is a collection sure to appeal to any taste. It does Canada’s female crime writers proud. —Louise Penny, New York Times Bestselling author

Thoughtful, well-written and above all, entertaining, this collection of short stories by established and up-and-coming crime writers is as Canadian as a polite little murder on a winter’s afternoon.    —Elizabeth J. Duncan, award-winning author of the Penny Brannigan series.

Are the stories in this new collection by Sisters in Crime ingenious? Check. Well written? Check.  A delight, a surprise, and unputdownable, story after story? Check, check, and check. If ever there was an anthology worth checking out, this is it.    Scott Mackay, Arthur Ellis Award winner for best short mystery fiction

You can buy a copy at The Sleuth of Baker Street, Toronto’s Independent Mystery Bookstore,

or order it online,  hard copy or e-book.

Release date November 20 2014..
