The January meeting for Mavens of Mayhem Chapter of Sisters in Crime Mystery Writers will be held on January 14th, 10:30 AM with Program starting at 11:00 AM, Bethlehem Public Library in Delmar, NY.

Our speaker is John Mullins. John is a retired detective, a member of Cobleskill Writers and is writing his first mystery novel. I am taking his self-defense course being given in Duanesburg in January because I think it sounds terribly interesting. Especially because he goes beyond the physical part of self-defense and into psychological and legal aspects.

As you already know, the law protects your right to defend yourself, your property and others from attack. But it is important to know how much force you are entitled to use or you may find yourself facing criminal charges.

Whether you are writing a full-blown scene about a violent attack or have the need to actually protect yourself, knowledge is the key.

Learn the most important things you can do to defend yourself at the January meeting.

I will mail out a complete agenda before the meeting, however I felt it was important to clarify the meeting date as it is different from the usual meeting date.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
