S5 E100: The Mesdames of Mayhem, In the Spirit of 13, ft: Cheryl Freedman

Join us weekly for this great series of short interviews with the authors who make up our collective, the Mesdames of Mayhem, and our “Coming Soon!” anthology, In the Spirit of 13.

This week we feature Cheryl Freedman, a 25-year veteran of the Canadian crime-writing scene and a long-time freelance editor of crime fiction, Jewish mysticism, memoirs, academic papers, and more.

Cheryl was the first executive director of Crime Writers of Canada and occasional chair of the Bloody Words Mystery Conference and the Bony Blithe Light Mystery Award. She takes the occasional stab at writing mysteries that reflect her interest in ballads and folksongs, cross-cultural folklore and mythology, and ferrets.
