The popular Mercedes Murdock Yardley is returning this month to give us her take on joining and using critique groups. (Hint -- she's in favor of them.) Last time Mercedes presented her talk was very well received, and she has been invited back virtually by popular demand.
Here is Mercedes writing about herself:
Hi. I’m Mercedes. I have two broken laptops, three kids, a husband and no time to write, although I try my very best. I like to write stories. I like to write poems. I like to write essays and sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they aren’t. I’m the author of the short story collection Beautiful Sorrows, the “serial killers in love” novella Apocalyptic Montessa and Nuclear Lulu: A Tale of Atomic Love, the BONE ANGEL trilogy, Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy, and the Bram Stoker Award winner Little Dead Red. I specialize in the dark and beautiful.
