We are thrilled to have fellow Sister in crime (!) speaking to us this month about her new novel, The Orphan, an historical mystery, and do a short reading.

Sylvia is the author of the Dr. Rebecca Temple novels, one of which won an Edgar. The other two were nominated for major awards. Her historical novel, The Queen of Unforgetting, was chosen by Project Bookmark Canada for a plaque installation on their literary map. Six of her short stories have been shortlisted for Derringers and Crime Writers of Canada awards. Her new novel, The Orphan, an historical mystery, will be published May 15, 2024. She teaches writing to seniors.
