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.

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

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

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 Without Sisters in Crime, I would not be published.
