Welcome Sisters (& Siblings) in Crime

“Where the Upper Hudson Crime and Mystery Community Connects”

The Upper Hudson Chapter of Sisters in Crime is open to everyone who reads or writes mysteries. Mavens of Mayhem is a chapter of the international organization Sisters in Crime. We are authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, and librarians bound by our passion for the mystery genre and our support of women who write mysteries. We welcome Sisters and Siblings in Crime from anywhere who have an interest in the mystery community.

Mavens of Mayhem

It’s impossible to over-emphasize the importance of belonging to a professional writers’ association like SinC. Without Sisters in Crime, I would not be published.

Carol Pouliot

I belong to Sisters in Crime because it lifts up women writers and offers opportunities to celebrate their work, as well as offering networking opportunities.

K.A. Laity

If I go a few days without writing, it feels like part of me is missing. I can't imagine doing anything else and I wouldn't want to.

Catherine Bruns

At my 1st Maven's meeting I learned: you have as much chance of getting published as you do of getting hit by lightening AND there are no failed writers, only writers who give up.
