My weird weekend
Many thanks to Ayo, Lizzie and Sara at Mystery Women for setting this event up, looking after us all and for your tireless efforts to promote our genre.
It was great to meet and spend time with such a warm and friendly group of authors ...

Between us all, I reckon we're going to spawn a whole new sub-genre based on this last weekend ...
