The Mesdames love a good chat!


This weekend, four Mesdames of Mayhem — M.H. Callway, Melodie Campbell, Lisa de Nikolits and myself — got together with Vanessa Westermann to talk about our writing, and why and how we do it.

It was great fun to revisit how we came up with the animals we wrote about in the Mesdames’ most recent anthology 13 Claws, the Canadian settings — or not — in our fiction, and our advice to aspiring writers.

This is what we chatted about with Vanessa.  Check it out!

Vanessa Westermann is an avid crime fiction reader, a reviewer, a blogger, a former Arthur Ellis Awards judge and a writing instructor. She is also the author of a mystery novel, An Excuse for Murder, which she is currently sending out to agents and publishers.

Thank you, Vanessa Westermann, for hosting the Mesdames of Mayhem on your blog. And much success with you mystery novel.
