Ottawa Author Brenda Chapman plays Bad Girl for Bloody Words X

Ottawa, ON- For those interested in murder, thrillers, bad girls, and yes, even forensic dentistry, the Bloody Words X Mystery Conference will be just their cup of tea. Canadian and U.S Mystery authors are converging on Toronto to celebrate 10 years of top notch mystery books and their authors.
 The conference, being held May 28-30 at the Hilton in downtown Toronto, has attracted special guests Giles Blunt, Deon Mayer and the Master of Ceremonies, Lynwood Barclay. Ottawa author Brenda Chapman will be sitting on the Bad Girls panel to discuss the characters in her new book In Winter’s Grip.

 “The character of my book, Maja, is a female protagonist who really pushes boundaries. That’s why I was thrilled to be asked to be part of the Bad Girl panel. It’s a chance to talk about what really makes women tick and how their roles in mysteries are gaining strength in the genre,” says Chapman, whose mystery In Winter’s Grip from RendezVous Crime is due out this September.
Brenda is no stranger to mystery conferences, and attends at least a few each year both in Canada and the U.S. She is the author of four books in the Jennifer Bannon mystery series for children. In Winter’s Grip is her first adult mystery and is already garnering accolades from other authors in her genre.
 “It is exciting to be part of the Canadian mystery writing scene during a period when our work is gaining national and international prominence,” says Chapman.
