The gentle Face of Crime


Recently, crime writer Catherine Aird, author of the Calleshire series, starring Sloan and Crosby, hosted a lunch for four other gentle, modest ladies of a certain age. They were Amy Myers, author of the Marsh and Daughter series and the new Jack Colby series (among others), Susan Moody, author of the Penny Wanawake and Cassandra Swann series (among others) Joan Lock, author of the Detective Inspector Ernest Best series (among others) and me. Amy's husband, Jim, took the picture and is very involved in the new Jack Colby series. To look at us, you'd never think we were such a murderous lot, would you?

Love the photo. And yes, I can imagine you talking about murder and mayhem.

What a nice photo! And can only speculate on the conversations going on over the table. :)

A lovely photo - and is that an empty wine bottle on the table...?(vbg!)

Thanks, all - yes it is an empty wine bottle, but I wasn't drinking! (Now, now, just because you normally see me drunk and incapable...) I was driving. :-(
