I sat through the Tea and Cozy Panel and those women scared the hell out of me. Oh! Waaay more than joksters over at the Killer Thriller Panel. We had a retired parole officer who called interpol, oh sure, who's not chums with interpol? The Moderator is a retired physicist who makes quips to her male counterparts, "Oh I did't know there were male physicists." Seriously, the cojones on that one! And one of the panelists proclaimed "It's not illegal to kill imaginary people!" and "I've thought about killing someone with a cell phone...yes."
I think I, like a lot of people, thought 'well those cozy mystery writers aren't they a quaint bunch'. Yea, I was wrong. If I go missing anytime soon, please check these ladies alibi's first.
