Mystery People: 10 Year Anniversary.


Today is the 10th Anniversay of the launch on 13 March 2012 of the Mystery People Group held at Goldsboro Books in Cecil Court, London, courtesy of the wonderful David Headley to whom I owe much for the creation of the group, and also my lovely friend 
Ruth Dudley Edwards
 Without their support it would not have been possible, and I hope that they are both pleased with the success of the group.

  The group was set up to help promote crime fiction with the emphasis on new writers.
Over the years the regular newsletter has grown to 30 pages. It advises of the new books coming out, and includes, articles, interviews, crime fiction news from other parts of the globe, news of forthcoming crime fiction conferences and reviews of recently published books.

Its sucess is down to it's many regular contributors:
Peter Tickler who writes his Written in the Blood column
Carol Westron who writes of the Golden Age
Gitta Edelmann who gives us News from The Continent.
JIll Amadio who gives us the Writing Experiences of an Ex-Pat
Mary Mystery
for those of you in need of succour, help and comfort
and all my wonderful book reviewers.
