Malice Domestic Highlights

Another Malice down! We’re getting back in the swing of real life, but thought we’d share the best and brightest moments from our time in Bethesda last week.

Edith: We all, including Accomplice Sheila Connolly, united for a panel at the Barnes & Noble the night before Malice started.

Sherry: It’s all about the people! I love seeing only friends and meeting new ones!

Jessie: I agree with Sherry about the people. It is such fun to catch up with friends and to make new ones.

Barb: The Best Contemporary Novel panel was a highlight for me I was on it with fellow nominees with Ellen Byron, Catriona McPherson, and Hank Phillippi Ryan, moderated by Shawn Reilly Simmons. Congratulations to the winner, the amazing Louise Penny. Catching up with my college friend Vida Antolin-Jenkins and meeting the super-impressive Kate Carlisle.

Wickeds

The Sisters in Crime breakfast honored quite a few past presidents (that is, Goddesses) for our 30th anniversary celebration. Many of us credit Sisters in Crime with our writing making it into publication.

Edith: It was such a treat and an honor that three of us were nominated for four Agatha Awards this year! Here are Barb, Jessie, and me before the awards banquet.

I met Elisa Varey, who won the bid on our Malice basket we put together for the auction. She came by my 5pm signing to say hello, and have me sign on of the books. Thanks for bidding on the Wickeds Elisa!

  1. It was great seeing you all this weekend. And the Barnes and Noble panel Thursday evening was a great way to kick it off! Congratulations on the nominations!!!

  2. Thoroughly enjoyable Malice, made even more fun by getting to see the Wickeds. And what a treat to sit at a banquet table with three of you! Thanks for the photo. 🙂

  3. So much fun, but not nearly enough time. Loved lunch with you all on Friday, but I thought for sure we’d get another meal in or more time to chat. I just never really ran into you after that. 😦 They need to make it at least a month next year, don’t you agree?

  4. What Mark said! It was wonderful to see you all, but so much of it was only in passing. Still, each one of you lights up a room, so that’s always nice. Looking forward to more from the Wonderful Wickeds!

  5. You all look great!! It was nice seeing all of the pictures on Facebook during your trip. I wish I could have been there. It would have been so nice to have met all of you.

  6. I’m with Sherry – seeing old friends and making new is the best part of Malice. Seeing all the Wickeds at your B and N panel was a great way to kick off the weekend. Are you all going to Bouchercon? (and that first photo is fun – it looks like Jessie is off to a very mysterious and dangerous handbag convention)

  7. Hello Ladies! I am officially not a new kid on the block after attending this years Malice. Thank you for the wonderful memories and time spent together. I truly see that we are one happy family. I enjoyed the panels & discussions over the weekend. Hope everyone traveled safely to home. I look forward to next years Malice.
