Sisters in Crime Grand Canyon Writers is a proud chapter of Sisters in Crime (SinC), an international organization of published and aspiring authors, readers, literary agents, editors, booksellers, librarians and other distinguished members of the publishing industry.

Sisters in Crime was founded in 1986 by a group of 26 female crime writers to help women overcome obstacles in publishing, and achieve recognition and equality in an industry that traditionally ignored them. Sara Paretsky served as the organization’s first president. Today, SinC has more than 4,200 members and over 60 chapters worldwide.

The Sisters in Crime Grand Canyon Writers Chapter encourages and supports all members—both Sisters and Misters—whether they are published or unpublished.  We welcome and support writers of all genres. Membership offers networking, guidance, educational events, professional development, support and mentorship. We proudly promote the recognition of women crime writers and all members.

Member Spotlight

Meet Paula Brierley. Paula Brierley began writing mysteries at the age of ten, entertaining herself “with the imagined adventures I would surely have if I ever got out of school”.  In addition to her passion for writing, Paula wanted a career in medicine. In nursing school, she met her future husband. In an amusing twist of fate, he was the last male patient she ever treated. “I transferred directly to OB/GYN after that, working there before starting a family and my writing career.”  

President’s Message

WELCOME! Thank you for your interest in Sisters in Crime Grand Canyon Writers. We are published and aspiring authors seeking other likeminded individuals who wish to engage, network and learn together with the ultimate goals of friendship and success – and writing those gratifying words when your manuscript is finished … THE END. We look forward to you joining us.

Michele Peters, President
