Wickeds on a Stick at Bouchercon!

As we said on Wednesday, Jessie, Liz, and Barb couldn’t make it to Bouchercon this year, so the other Wickeds oh-so-graciously, took them on a stick.

Wickeds, what did Jessie, Liz, and Barb get up to at Bouchercon?

Answer: A lot! 

The Wickeds set off from Northern Virginia with Barb Goffman behind the wheel, Donna Andrews riding shotgun, and Shari Randall and Sherry Harris as backseat drivers.

  1. I particularly liked attending Crime Bake on a stick. I hadn’t been that thin ever before. It made the limbo contest much easier.

  2. This is GREAT! I love the Wickeds..the books they write…intrigue me..the stories they tell..make me think….but..the sense of humor….LOVE IT !!!! Keeps me coming back…!!!

  3. Thanks so much to Sherry, Edith and Julie for taking me to Bouchercon on a stick! It’s obvious I has a marvelous time. Next year in New Orleans, I hope to be there in the flesh.

  4. Wow, I’m tired just looking at everything the Wickeds on a Stick got to do. I’m jealous of their trip!

    Attending a mystery convention next year is on my list. Now, to see if it actually happens or not.

  5. Thanks for having me. And thanks for all the books for me to read. Nothing better then when sitting near the pool! This was a blast. But I think I need a dresser.
