Our purpose is to combat discrimination against women in the mystery field, educate publishers and the general public as to the inequalities in the treatment of female authors, and raise the level of awareness of their contribution to the field.
Join us on Saturday, 8 March 2014, when author Larissa Reinhart will discuss humor in mysteries. Larissa writes sassy, strong heroines who, unfortunately, tend to get into desperate situations. Some of her stories are funny and others dark, but Reinhart is a believer in happy endings, even if it takes some time and wading through a lot of trouble to get there.
