Her five books on business subjects include "Never Work for a Jerk", which was featured on the Oprah Winfrey show.

What we're about

We are a local subchapter of the national Sisters in Crime organization and consist of writers and readers of mysteries. Our monthly meetings include a business meeting followed by a speaker in the mystery field. Our guests have ranged from best-selling authors to agents and editors to those who work in law enforcement.

We have a critique group for writers and a book discussion group for readers. And while our name is "sisters", "brothers" are also welcome.

While joining this MeetUp group is free, please note that Sisters in Crime and Sisters in Crime Central Jersey are professional organizations that charge annual dues. There is no charge to try out a meeting at Sisters in Crime Central Jersey, but if you'd like to keep attending our monthly meetings, you will be required to pay dues at our current rate AND you must join the national Sisters in Crime chapter as well.
