Bright Heroines in Dark Times
Six authors of mysteries involving courageous and tenacious heroines will examine the allure of mystery, crime, and suspense. Women write more than one half of all mysteries, are 68% of all mystery readers, and are especially drawn to female protagonists. Why are so many women drawn to the mystery genre, as readers and writers, and what makes a compelling heroine?

Join She Writes Press publisher, Brooke Warner, and authors Michelle Cox (A Ring of Truth), J. L. Doucette (Last Seen), Jennifer Dwight (The Tolling of Mercedes Bell), Judith Newton (Oink), Amy S. Peele (Cut), and Kate Jessica Raphael (Murder Under the Fig Tree) for a lively discussion of these questions and of their novels, which span a wide range of styles and subspecialties within the mystery genre. They will also share their journeys to publication.
