THIRTEEN launched in print today


Mesdames Thirteen CoverThirteen, the Mesdames of Mayhem’s collection of crime short stories, had its print launch today at my favourite mystery bookstore, Sleuth of Baker Street. The store was packed with readers, and most of the 13 authors turned out to read from their stories. My contribution to the anthology, “The Sweetheart Scamster,” is a Pat Tierney tale of grey romance — with a twist.

My hat is off to mesdames Madeleine Harris Callway, Donna Carrick and Joan O’Callaghan for all the work they did  making Thirteen happen. And to Sleuth co-owner, Marian Misters, for the support she’s given Toronto crime writers over the years , and for hosting today’s launch.

There are so many people who support writers right in their own communities, and librarians are at the top of my long list. This week and last, I read from Safe Harbor and Black Water at two Toronto libraries with authors Nate Hendley and Sharon Crawford. The librarians at these branches did a wonderful job of promoting the events.  The next one will be on Monday Nov. 4 at Toronto’s Annette Street Branch where I’ll read with D.J. McIntosh, Terri Favro and Lisa de Nikolits.
