Are you going to Bloody Words?

If not, why not?

Bloody Words is the Canadian mystery convention.  It is held in Toronto every second year, and in other Canadian cities in intervening years.  As far as small conventions go, it is definitely one of the best, packed with a line up of panels and events for established authors, beginning authors, and readers. A chance to hob-nob with some of your favourite Canadian crime and suspense authors and meet new ones.


in 2014 , the Canadian Guest of Honour is... ME! Although all types of crime novels and non-fiction are celebrated at Bloody Words, the theme this year will be Historical Mysteries.  As you know I am the author of the Klondike Gold Rush series, and my standalones have a strong thread of history running through them, in a dual narrative format.  World War II in Scare the Light Away and Burden of Memory, and the American Revolution and Loyalist Settlers in More than Sorrow. 

I am really looking forward to Bloody Words, June 6 - 8 in Toronto and hope you'll join us.  Here's the link with all the details.
