I belong to the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group (LVWG) (located at www.glvwg.org). The members provide critique expertise, as well as networking and conference opportunities. I have just joined Sisters in Crime (SinC into a good mystery) and its New England Chapter Scarlet Letters (www.sincne.org). I believe the fact that I will always be a New Englander at heart qualifies me for a NE Chapter! Once a Mainer, always a Mainer. As a struggling first-time author, I look forward to my interactions in each forum.
