An essay on 'The Canadians'

something to read while you wait for SNOWED

Art Taylor hosted contributors - including me! - to the 2023 Bouchercon Anthology to talk about their approach to the first two pages of their stories - it's an interesting perspective and was a lot of fun to write.

A short bio plus links

I write upmarket mysteries - short and long, funny or dark. I am crazy about classic movies. I'm a sucker for social history. I like to paint and doodle tiny things, and don't get me started on sandwiches. I used to write knitting patterns for my blog, Hugs For Your Head - visit on Saturdays to read about whatever new rabbit hole I've been down. You can also find me on Instagram, or e-mail me to say Hello.
