If you are just starting your first mystery or think you’ll someday write a mystery…a reader who enjoys mystery or an already published author…a librarian or bookseller…publisher or publicist or other specialist…we’d love to have you join us. All our members belong to at least one of these categories.
At our monthly meetings, you’ll find the answers to questions, encouragement you’ve been seeking, and support you need. Here on our website, you’ll find information about our meetings and events, member and author websites and information about their books.
You’ll also find links to our parent organization, Sisters In Crime. Every member gains access to loads of valuable resources and links to the latest industry information and news, global support, on-line critique groups through the Guppies Chapter for the Great UnPublished, and other resources to make your reading and writing more enjoyable and profitable.
Joyce Lavene, Chapter President.
