And here at the beginning of her reading from Beyond Faith at SinC Toronto. This time PI Dana Bowman is confined to a photograph Sharon is holding.
Another SinC reading photo is on the Beyond Faith page. Scroll down the page.
And also here at the Ontario Librarian Association convention February 2 at Metro Toronto Convention Centre (Hint: Channeling PI Dana Bowman)
Beyond Faith offers secrets, lies and death with a connection to the Catholic Church, set in small-town and big-city Ontario. It’s a great story with a great pair of unlikely protagonists (a brother-sister pair of twin investigators), twists, surprises and Sharon Crawford’s distinctive tone and shining dialogue. Recommended for any detective-story fans yearning for Ontario-based tales.
– Nate Hendley, true-crime author (Steven Truscott: Decades of Injustice and The Big Con)
