Four Crime Writers and Nine Bottles of Wine

The pictures pretty much say it all. Barbara Fradkin, Mary Jane Maffini and I ventured into the woods of Quebec for a couple of days at R.J.(Robin) Harlick’s cabin. Food, wine (and lots of it), laughs, dogs, walks, book talk, publishing-industry talk.

I’ve said before that what I like best about being a crime writer is the other crime writers. I have made so many great friends.
Weather was good except for a downpour the second morning. We were able to both sit outside for lunch, and have a fire in the fireplace in the morning and evenings.


  1. Sounds like loads of fun. Love the cabin. I have to ask, out of the 9 bottles which was the best?

  2. I'm not sure Mary Jane is quite safe sitting on the stairs like that. Considering the company's she's in, it wouldn't take more than just a little push ....

  3. Mason, I brought two bottles from Prince Edward County. The Reisling from By Chadsey's Cairns winery was excellent.
