- Carole Price's debut TWISTED VINES is now available as an ebook on Kindle! You can get it right here.
- Join us on Monday, when we have Honored Guest writer H. S. Stavropoulos, who is also President of the Sisters in Crime, Northern California Chapter. As Helen notes, "I was born and raised in a small Greek village in the middle of Oakland, California. And that defines everything about me. I live and write at the intersection of those two vibrant and diverse worlds. The home of my forebearers and the land of my birth. Luckily, one nurtured the other and I have found my place in both."

Tricia's first book, The Territory, won the Tony Hillerman Award for Best Mystery. She is currently working on the fourth book in the series, Fire Break, featuring border town Chief of Police, Josie Gray. For more about the series, visit her website: www.triciafields.com
