That’s right, you found us! We’re the Columbus chapter of Sisters in Crime, formerly known as Sisters in Crime-Columbus, Ohio. We’re a group of writers from just about every sub-genre – crime noir, cozies, horror, you name it. If it has a body count, it has a place with us! We ranged from published authors to new writers – all experience levels are welcome. We work to help each other out with critique sessions, schedule authors and other experts to come visit us, and even take the occasional field trip. The goal is to help our members become better writers and achieve their dreams of publishing their stories. Please take a few minutes to check out our coming events, some past events for a flavor, and get to know us!
Captain Kidd. Blackbeard. Pirates of the Caribbean. The Pittsburgh Pirates. You like pirates? Of course you do . . . who doesn’t like pirates? Probably some Yankees fan, like Rudy Giuliani, because his name starts with an ‘aarrrrrrr’ (shut up, that was hilarious). Anyway, since everybody likes pirates, you have no reason to not attend the Old Worthington Library on Saturday, May 26, from 12:30 – 2:00 and converse with our monthly speaker, Steve Goble. Steve is the home-grown Ohio author of THE BLOODY BLACK FLAG, and THE DEVIL’S WIND (coming out in September, 2018). Both books feature a reluctant pirate protagonist who solves murder mysteries in the early 1700’s off colonial America . . . a plot device so cool it’s got antifreeze in its veins. Steve is a debut author who’s also a local journalist for USA Today, a former speaker at the recent Murder and Mayhem Conference in Chicago (with Gillian Flynn and Jeffrey Deaver), and just for fun he has Godzilla as his spirit animal. In short, he has tons of experiential advice to pass on to new authors which you don’t want to miss. So bone up on your pirate lingo and fancy sword skills and spend some quality time with a few of your faves (and join us for lunch afterwards, per usual). Oh, and keep writing.
