Frequently Canadian authors have been told to set their stories in some generic or easily recognizable city in the US, to guarantee sales. Well, this panel has successfully defied those voices and set their works in a very recognizable Toronto. In conjuction with our friends at Crime Writers of Canada, we are very excited to be presenting the following powerhouse panel:

They will discuss their choices, their research, and the subsequent marketing landscape.

One of the Super Duper benefits of Sisters in Crime, is that we get funded access to a internationally renowned author speaking at our meetings. For 2019, we have the honour to be hosting Marcia Talley. An Agatha and Anthony award-winning author of sixteen Hannah Ives mysteries, including Daughter of Ashes and Mile High Murder, Talley is also the editor/author of Naked Came the Phoenix, a star-studded, tongue-in-cheek collaborative serial novel about murder in a fashionable health spa. A second collaboration, I'd Kill For That, is set in an upscale gated community. Her latest, Tangled Roots comes out this Spring.

Her short stories appear in more than a dozen collections including With Love, Marjorie Ann and Safety First, both Agatha award nominees, and the multi-award-winning story "Too Many Cooks,” a humorous retelling of Shakespeare’s Macbeth from the viewpoint of the three witches, from Much Ado About Murder, edited by Anne Perry. Her story “Driven to Distraction” won the Agatha Award, was nominated for an Anthony, and selected for reprint in two major collections including The Deadly Bride and 21 of the World’s Best Crime and Mystery Stories. Another story, “Can You Hear Me Now,” appeared in Two of the Deadliest: New Tales of Lust, Greed and Murder from Outstanding Women of Mystery, edited by Elizabeth George.
