Meet some local Vancouver-area authors at these Crime Writers of Canada events:
Thanks to Cooperation Housing in Fremantle, Western Australia for their kind review of Murder is Uncooperative. They had this to say in their newsletter:
“Merrilee Robson has drawn on her own co-op experiences to write an engaging mystery whose setting will ring true to anyone familiar with the housing co-op sector.”
I’m always happy to hear from readers but it particularly pleases me when housing co-op members tell me they find the book believable.

I have another short story out, just published in Over My Dead Body! online magazine.
I spent Sunday at Word Vancouver, a free literary festival held at the Vancouver Public Library’s central branch. Crime Writers of Canada members staffed an information table and participated in a panel on mysteries set in BC.
Here I am at the table with fellow @crimewriterscan members Iona Whishaw, Debra Purdy Kong, and Trine Bronken.
Here’s a list of the sessions I’ll be involved in:
Friday, August 11, 7 pm Keep Your Pantsers on as the Plotters Thicken
Saturday, August 12, 12 pm The Mystery of Mysteries
Saturday, August 12, 3 pm Absolute Mystery Basics
Sunday, August 13, 2 pm Elements of Suspense
Sunday, August 13, 4 pm Women of Mystery
I’m looking forward to it. The conference is sold out but I’m told they are keeping a waiting list. And the Merchants Room is open to the public, as are the autograph sessions on Saturday 8 pm in the Parkland Room at the Delta Calgary South. If you’re in Calgary on Saturday, August 12, stop by. I would love to see you.
A huge thank you to the lovely folks at the Indigo store @chaptersindigo at Broadway and Granville in Vancouver, who are doing a stellar job of displaying and promoting my Vancouver-based book, and keep ordering more as it sells. I’ll have to stop by and sign more copies.
I’m thrilled to say that Murder is Uncooperative is now available in Chapters Indigo stores across the country! Thanks to all of you who have bought my #coophousing book. It makes my author’s heart glow.
I’m very excited that the Central Ontario Co-operative Housing Federation is dramatizing Murder is Uncooperative as part of their Co-op Service Awards dinner. Rebecca and her fellow co-op members will be featured in a mystery dinner theatre performance on February 16. The event recognizes housing co-op members for contribution to their housing co-op, the greater co-op movement, or the larger community. I hope it is a fun evening and congratulations to all the award winners.
