Mystery and Crime at Wolfe Island

Jamie Tremain had a fabulous week-end on bucolic Wolfe island . The largest island of the Thousand islands on the St Lawrence River. We were greeted warmly after a twenty minute ferry ride and escorted to the local school for a terrific workshop given by Barbara Fradkin.She even made us work. A short walk to our next venue and we settled into the United church for readings from a varied group of authors.

Picture on the right /left to right is Gloria Ferris, Barbara Fradkin, John Moss,Pam Blance, Vicki Delaney and Liz Lindsay. Pictures in no particular order.

Question and answer time with Barbara Fradkin moderating. A very elegant Violette Malin to the left of the picture. Andrew Pyper, next to Barbara is either deep in thought or has nodded off. Ian Hamilton had an urgent call and the ladies would never miss a photo op.

Liz had a date with Alfred Hitchcock before we left the island. 

Lovely w/e at Scene of the Crime. Met old friends and made some new that we had a giggle with. They know who they are. Well organized event and the planners and volunteers are to be commended.

If you don't hear from me in a while I will be busy reading the books I bought. Our trip home took three hours so we had lots of time to chat about the new book. If I'm not reading I hope to be writing.
