Congrats to Pam Newton and Colleen Egan for taking out Sister in Crime Davitt Awards in different categories. I reviewed Colleen’s terrific ‘Murderer No More’ earlier on this blog, and Pam’s ‘The Old School was also the winner of an Asher Award and short-listed in the best first fiction category of the Ned Kelly Awards, and is also well worth a read. You can learn more about the book at Pam’s website –

The Sisters in Crime convention this year, SheKilda, had over seventy writer guests, and no doubt plenty of fascinating discussion.
