Our annual Sisters in Crime evening is benefiting our Legal Advocacy Fund. We will begin the evening with coffee, tea and desserts. Then, we will have our local mystery writers discuss their books and how and why they write them.

The Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) works to challenge sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace. Our resources range from community outreach programs to backing of major cases. The authors this year are:

Susan Alice Bickford was born in Boston and grew up in central New York. After she discovered computer graphics and animation, her passion for technology pulled her to Silicon Valley where she became an executive at a leading technology company. She now works as an independent consultant and continues to be fascinated by all things high tech. She splits her time between Silicon Valley and Vermont.

Simon Wood is a California transplant from England. He is a former competitive racecar driver, a licensed pilot, a cyclist, animal rescuer and occasionally a P.I. He has won the Anthony Award and one of his books has been optioned for a movie adaption. He has also written under the name of Simon Janus.

Mary Feliz has lived in five states and two countries, but calls Silicon Valley home. Her writing contains elements of irony, serendipity, diversity, quirky intelligence and gentle humor.

Terry Shames was raised in Texas and graduated from the University of Texas. She currently lives in Berkeley. She is the current president of the Northern California chapter of Sisters in Crime. She is also a member of Mystery Writers of America and America and International Thriller Writers.

Kirsten Weiss worked overseas for nearly 14 years, on the edges of the former USSR and in Southeast Asia. She is interested in the effects of mysticism and mythology and how both are woven into our daily lives. She lives in San Mateo.
