Another Contest: MOTHERHOOD IS MURDER
Speaking of Carolyn Hart, she just sent me an email saying she has extra copies of Motherhood Is Murder, featuring novellas from her, Mary Daheim, Jane Isenberg, and Shirley Rousseau Murphy. She'll sign them and send them to the 10 (count 'em, that's T-E-N!!!) Meritorious Mysteries readers who send me a reason that proves the title. Just a few lines will do. Please put "CONTEST" in the subject line and include your name and snail mail address. Good luck!
I'm supposed to be retired, but I keep busy as a media escort and editor of inSinC, the Sisters in Crime journal.
I read about 200 mysteries a year and have been reviewing and lecturing about mysteries for nearly 25 years. I enjoy moderating crime fiction panels at panels across the country.
I often host mystery authors and book them into stores, libraries, and other venues in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.
If you live in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina, you may want to subscribe to "Triangle Mystery" where I operate a list-serv alerting folks to upcoming mystery events and happenings. I post bookstore and library events as well as schedules for authors who are visiting with me. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Join" button.
