O.C. Sisters in Crime November Meeting
At this month’s meeting of Orange County Sisters in Crime, attendees will hear from local author-members who will discuss and read from their latest published writings.
“Our OC authors give so much of themselves to our chapter, it’s nice to be able to support them in this forum,” says president Gayle Carline. With a nod to the year’s previous meetings, which featured guest authors and experts in fields of criminal justice, she adds, “Now it’s our authors’ turn. We have many authors in our chapter who are doing exciting things.”
The meeting will be held on Sunday, November 27 at 2 p.m. in Irvine.
Featured Local Authors
Participating writers – whose works encompass traditional and self-publishing – include: Jill Amadio (the Tosca Trevant mysteries); Nancy Churchill (“A Deliberate Lie”); Seamus Beirne (“Breakout from Sugar Island”); Cynthia Weitz (“Feisty Old Ladies”); Donna Lear (“Crimson Gold”); Barbara DeMarco Barrett (whose short story is included in the anthology “USA Noir”); and Greta Boris (“The Wine and Chocolate Workout” and the forthcoming 7 Deadly Sins series). Gayle Carline, who authors the Peri Minneopa mystery series, will moderate the discussion.
The chapter meets in the Community Room of the Irvine Ranch Water District, at 15500 Sand Canyon Ave., Irvine.
