Farewell, Women of Mystery

I've been blogging at Women of Mystery for more than six years now, but the time has come for the blog to come to an end. It was a wonderful experience to work with fellow Sisters in Crime ~ such talented writers. I will miss the blog, but it means I will be able to focus on my own blog and concentrate on my writing. I would certainly be open to joining another group blog, so if any mystery/crime fiction group blogs are looking for another blogger, give me a shout-out.

The eight years of blogs from Women of Mystery will remain available online. I'm grateful for the experience, and especially thankful for the assistance rendered by Laura K. Curtis and Clare Toohey when I first joined in 2009.

I will also miss our regular visitors and blog pals. Hopefully, they will Google the various Women of Mystery to continue to follow some of us.



I have some happy news to share: On December 13, 2015, an anthology named Crooked Holster: Ritual, edited by Sandra Kohls and Jo Young, was published in the UK (although it's available in the U.S. Amazon as well), and my story, "A Spontaneous Decision" is among the crime fiction stories included. Crime Fiction author Louise Welsh has written the foreword.

I'm currently the President of Long Island Sisters in Crime. We meet monthly at 66 Austin Blvd., Commack, at 12:30 p.m. Established and Emerging writers interested in mystery, thriller, crime fiction and related genres are welcome to join our group. Although the name of the group is Sisters in Crime, we certainly welcome Misters and Brothers! You can attend a few meetings to see if this is the group for you. If so, dues are to be paid at the National Sisters in Crime and the local chapter as well.

Long Island Sisters in Crime can be found on Twitter as @LI_SinC and on Facebook.

You can find me on Twitter and Instagram under katcop13. I'm on Facebook as Kathleen Gernert Ryan.

  1. Sorry for the inexcusable delay, Charles! I'm so used to the WoM blog and I have to re-orient myself to my private blog! Thanks for being such a great blog-pal to WoM. We enjoyed writing our posts and getting feedback from such wonderful folks such as yourself. I must get my rear in gear and start posting here on a regular basis! Hope all is well with you and your family.
