Deep Discussions with Crime Writers of Canada

The Gales of November: more than a literary device!

In between recurring power outages across BC, CWC social media guru Erik d'Souza managed to get three Western Canadian crime authors together online on a recent Friday afternoon for The Western Wing, ep. 5 Smashing Stereotypes. Follow me, international crime sensation Tara Moss, and crime radio whiz Alan R. Warren through our sometimes windblown discussion of true crime, disability, and challenging character stereotypes in our books. 


Video descriptor: We see a Zoom screen split into four panels. 

The first shows Erik D'Souza. He wears a collared white shirt and glasses, and has dark hair. He is wearing ear buds.

The second panel shows Tara Moss. Tara is a tall white woman with long dark salt and pepper hair. She is using her wheelchair, Nyx, and is wearing a grey top and dark red lipstick.

The third shows Alan R Warren, a white man with grey beard and a baseball cap, with shelves of books behind him.

The fourth panel shows Jayne Barnard, a short white-haired woman with red glasses and a straight-necked burgundy sweater. She wears a nasal cannula for oxygen delivery.

  Since 1999 Tara Moss has written 14 books, published in 19 countries and 13 languages. Her latest is the internationally bestselling historical crime novel The War Widow. The sequel, The Ghosts of Paris, hit stores in the USA, Canada, Australia and NZ on June 7, 2022
