With all the buzz this month about the up-coming Arthur Ellis Short-list (Short List Events take place April 18, 2013 in cities across Canada), I’d be a naughty little Crime Writer if I didn’t pay homage to the CrimeWriters of Canada (CWC) and their exceptional work in raising the profile of the Crime Fiction and True Crime genres in our country.
