COMPASSION, CONNECTION, AND INSPIRATION�

The path of a writing career can be rocky and twisty and full of dead ends. But it�s also well-traveled-and in Writes of Passage, fifty-eight mystery authors offer the secrets that helped them navigate their success. When you�re in need of an author�s roadmap, �pick up this book,� as Hank Phillippi Ryan says in the introduction. �Open it to any page. The sisters of SinC have shared their personal journeys-and they have many tales to tell.� These tales reveal the �Writes of Passage� every author encounters, and Sisters in Crime hopes these beautifully told experiences will guide you along your way.

Praise for WRITES OF PASSAGE:


�Every writer�beginner or bestseller�gets lost sometimes. Some days words don�t flow and the path is hidden. Writes of Passage is a magic-box of wise words for those cloudy days. Like a lunch-date with all your funniest, kindest friends, this book will remind you of the joy of writing, inspire you to stick at it and remind you that you�re not alone.� � Catriona McPherson, Agatha, Macavity and Bruce-Winning Author of the Dandy Gilver Series and the Anthony-Nominated As She Left It

�Writes of Passage is that centering book every author needs, whether multi-published or still striving, the one that captures our collective experience as writers with compassion, connection, and inspiration. Its insightful essays will surprise you and renew you every time you open it, for as long as your writer�s journey continues.� � Laura DiSilverio, 2014 President, Sisters in Crime; Author of the Lefty-Nominated Swift Investigations Series, the Mall Cop Series, and The Reckoning Stones (2015)
