The Greater St. Louis Chapter of Sisters in Crime is dedicated to helping every writer achieve the dream of publication. It is a place for men and women to find camaraderie and encouragement. Our main goal is to create an active, non-competitive atmosphere for writers, readers, and other lovers of the mystery genre.

             Congratulations to our members and their books published in 2017!
