My political career starts this week

imagesI threw my hat in the ring . . . and no one kicked it out, so I was elected President of the central Virginia chapter of Sisters in Crime for 2014. (This is a national organization for female crime writers and readers.) We have an active chapter that draws people from much of the state for monthly meetings, field trips, and critique sessions, including visits to police headquarters, gun ranges, and conferences. I’m looking forward to a fun year in office!
