Today on the BWL website I write about Bouchercon World Mystery Convention. https://bwlauthors.blogspot.com/
My turn today on the BWL Blogspot. https://bwlauthors.blogspot.com/ I discuss ‘When Your Novel Takes a Wrong Turn.’
I’m excited about my short story publication in
the Cold Canadian Crime Anthology, to be released in May.
Here’s my latest article in Opal Magazine, about my choices and experience of setting my novel-in-progress during the COVID-19 pandemic. https://opalpublishing.files.wordpress.com/2022/02/mar-owm_2022.pdf?mc_cid=a42af0ac2b&mc_eid=85ed6ddd3f Scroll down to page 29, but don’t forget to read the interesting articles along the way.
I’m excited that my short story, A Deadly Flu, will be included in the Crime Writers of Canada 40th Anniversary short story anthology, Cold Canadian Crime. Stories submitted had to be set in Canada and include something cold. Mine is set in a cold Calgary December during the 1918 influenza pandemic. I especially enjoyed exploring the parallels with our current pandemic. The anthology will be released in May 2022, when it will hopefully be warm outside. I look forward to reading the stories written by the authors listed in the CWC website. https://crimewriterscanada.com/ Scroll down and click on Cold Canadian Crime: The Big Reveal.
Today on the BWL website I write about my romantic birthday dinner last December in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. https://bwlauthors.blogspot.com/ Enjoy!

I’m excited about my Calgary Public Library online event tomorrow night, Wednesday, Jan 26th.
Books and Ideas: How Canadian Mystery Novels Connect us to our Country’s People, Places, and Stories
Mystery novels are fun to read, but crime fiction set in Canada teaches us about our country. Join Calgary mystery author, Susan Calder, in a lively conversation with Margaret Hadley, University of Calgary Instructor Emerita of English. They’ll discuss how Canadian crime novels portray our unique characters, regions, history, and contemporary life.
