The Whole She-Bang
release date November 2014

Yes, itís official. Iíve turned to a life of crime. My short story "Poetic Justice" is being included in the newest anthology from Canadian crime writers, The Whole She-bang 2 .

Following the 2011 success of the first book, The Whole She-Bang , the Canadian members of Sisters in Crime decided to publish a second anthology of crime stories by Canadian writers, from first offenders to hardened veterans.

I had a ton of fun writing "Poetic Justice" and couldn't resist basing it on recent, crazy events in Toronto.

And now I'm in the company of twenty (!) other mystery writers. I can't wait to read the rest of the stories.

Where to buy The Whole She-Bang 2

Editor Janet Costello and her crew have pulled together 24 stories ranging from cosy to noir, from deadly serious to dying laughing. Iím thrilled to be included among such a talented crew of sisters and brothers.

What other writers are saying....

The Whole She-Bang 2 is wonderful! With accomplished short stories that range from hilarious to gruesome to downright unsettling, this is a collection sure to appeal to any taste. It does Canadaís female crime writers proud.
     Louise Penny, New York Times Bestselling author

Thoughtful, well-written and above all, entertaining, this collection of short stories by established and up-and-coming crime writers is as Canadian as a polite little murder on a winterís afternoon.
      Elizabeth J. Duncan, award-winning author of the Penny Brannigan series.

Are the stories in this new collection by Sisters in Crime ingenious? Check. Well written? Check. A delight, a surprise, and unputdownable, story after story? Check, check, and check. If ever there was an anthology worth checking out, this is it.
