Welcome writers and readers! We are the Sacramento, California chapter of Sisters in Crime, an international mystery writers organization dedicated to enhancing visibility and representation of diverse voices in the genre and across the marketplace. 

October Meeting

Paranormal Panel

Dänna Wilberg will moderate a panel of paranormal authors, at least 1 psychic, and will discuss how to include paranormal elements in your stories, and how to get it right. Panelists include Jessica Cline, Elaine Faber, Erin Burrell, Casi McLean, Eric Gates, Linda Schooler, and Joseph Ernest Martin. Each Author will have 5 minutes to introduce their work, the paranormal elements, and why they chose the genre. Each psychic will be given 5 minutes to introduce themselves and talk about their work, and how they chose their vocation. After introductions, Dänna will proceed with questions to open discussion, followed by questions from the attendees.
