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Grand Canyon Writers Chapter encourages and supports all members—both Sisters and Misters—whether they are published or unpublished.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.

Find out how to become a member, join us for one of our informative, monthly meetings held on the second Saturday of each month, our signature Fireside Chats, or attend one of our upcoming special events.

Member Spotlight

Meet Veronica Hassenger.  Veronica Hassenger fell in love for the first time at the age of ten.The object of her affection? Mysteries. Specifically, the first mystery she ever read, Agatha Christie’s Murder in Mesopotamia

Her interest in creative storytelling increased with every novel she read—and was matched by a passion for music and zeal for the study of health and science. What’s a person to do? Well, why not do it all? And, Veronica did!
