Tracy Ward is another of my colleagues from Sisters in Crime. She has some great advice below and a super cool blog called Corsets and Cadavers. Check her out:
A former journalist and graduate from Humber College’s School for Writers, Tracy Ward has been hard at work developing her favourite protagonist, Peter Ainsley, and chronicling his adventures as a young surgeon in Victorian England. Her first book featuring Peter Ainsley titled, CHORUS OF THE DEAD, was published earlier this month. Her website can be found at www.gothicmysterywriter.blogspot.com. Tracy Ward is currently working on the second book in the Peter Ainsley mystery series. She lives near Barrie, Ontario with her husband, two kids and a brown, cocker spaniel puppy named Watson.
