At the Scene of the Crime

Hello, friends! I’m so excited about this week. Tomorrow, I’ll be skyping with a group of YA readers in Prescott, Arizona. And this weekend, I’m appearing at the Scene of the Crime Mystery Festival on Wolfe Island, Ontario. I’ll be there with DJ McIntosh, John Moss, and Thomas Rendell Curran, as well as the deliciously named Ladies Killing Circle.

I love Scene of the Crime. It’s friendly, informal, and it includes a church-ladies’ dinner that usually ends with pie. The first time I went, I was an aspiring writer and I went at the encouragement of my friend Jay Ridler. I met – gasp! – Real Live Authors, who were approachable and funny, and with whom we all went for drinks afterwards. So I’m especially thrilled to be going back this year as one of the authors. I will do my best to be as engaging and welcoming as they all were to me. If you’re in the Kingston area, please come! It’ll be delightful.

    Thank you so much, Ms. Lee, for visiting our book group. I had such a wonderful time, and all of your stories and all that you shared was most interesting! I cannot wait for the fourth book, and I look forward to receiving your letter. Thanks again! I had a blast!

    P.S. For the record, I think you would have been an incredible history professor.

    Thank you for skyping with my teen book club! I really enjoyed learning about what a middle class teenager would do during the Victorian Peroid. I’ve read the Agency series and I can’t wait for the fourth!

    Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to sit and speak with the reading group. They were so inspired by you and thoroughly enjoyed speaking with you.

    Hi, I just read a teen mystery called Secret Letters by Leah Scheier, and couldn’t resist sharing it with you. Brilliantly written (and w/ a Victorian setting too)! If this is a new genre, I hope it continues. It has all my favourite things in it (Victorian, mystery, and female protagonists). Hope your 4th book is going well.

    And just wanted to say how much I love the Agency Series! It was actually recommended to me by my Victorian lit professor from Queen’s University.

    Cheers,
    Alicia
