Podcasts Features Women Mystery and Crime Novelists

Thanks to Scott Montgomery, the crime fiction coordinator at BookPeople, and the Sisters of Crime Heart of Texas chapter, an association devoted to promoting awareness of the contribution of women mystery writers, I have interviewed a number of women mystery writers this year.  In celebration of these writers and a couple I found on my own, I decided to post podcasts of all of these interviews.  This collection of writers have featured plots covering everything from murder of  a world renowed chef to a couple of marijuana growers trying to discover the identity of a headless corpse found in their front yard.  I hope you take time to enjoy these interviewed broadcast on KAZI Book Review, then go out to buy the book:
