Ladies' Killing Circle
The Ladies’ Killing Circle, a dynamic group of six Canadian women, first joined forces as a critiquing group and then as the editorial board for a series of popular short story anthologies. They began with The Ladies’ Killing Circle (1995) and followed with Cottage Country Killers (1997), Menopause is Murder (l999), Fit to Die (2001), Bone Dance (2003), When Boomers Go Bad (2005) and ended with, Going Out with a Bang (2008). Stories from each book in the series have been finalists for Arthur Ellis Best Short Story Awards and three won the covetted first prize. The books have launched the successful solo careers of several contributors. The six killer ladies are Joan Boswell, Vicki Cameron, Barbara Fradkin, Mary Jane Maffini, Sue Pike and Linda Wiken and they all contribute to the blog, http://www.mysterymavencdn.blogspot.com
When seven award-winning women authors with crime on their minds join forces the result is seven anthologies in just over a decade. In these stories from the first anthology, The Ladies' Killing Circle, everyone has secrets and sometimes murder is the only way to keep them safe.
Let the ladies slay you!
