Looking forward to moderating Crime Writers of Canada’s Killing It With Style panel on Tuesday Dec. 12. I’ll be joined by four fellow crime fiction writers at Toronto Reference Library, who will share their insights on crafting their criminous tales:
Jass Aujla is the author of Next of Twin, which was released this year. Jass’s protagonist, Riah Arora, is a con artist who makes her living robbing marks. When she finds the identical twin sister she was separated from at birth, she plans one last, lucrative con.
T. Lawrence Davis's first crime novel, The Pale Horse, features an amateur sleuth who strives to clear a friend's name in a murder investigation, while his wife, the detective leading the police investigation, tries to build a case against her. The Pale Horse was a finalist in Crime Writers of Canada’s Best Crime First Novel competition this year.
Madeleine Harris-Callway is a veteran crime writer who frequently walks on the dark side. She’s the author of numerous works of short crime fiction, many of them noir tales. Three of the stories in her new collection, Snake Oil and Other Tales, were finalists for CWC’s awards of excellence.
Kris Purdy’s debut crime novel Paradise Pending was released this year. When its protagonist Jo Gasperi is invited to speak at a conference in Spain, she and her partner Dani look forward to a much-needed vacation abroad. But when Jo is taken to a hospital with chest pains, their dream vacation turns into a nightmare.
Hoping to see a great turnout of crime fiction fans and writers on Dec. 12! Toronto Reference Library is at 789 Yonge Street, a short walk from the Bloor-Yonge subway station. Our show begins at 6:30 p.m.
