Event #4: New Female Voices in Crime — Saturday March 12, 1:00 to 2:30 pm
Kristi will give our crime fiction audience a chance to have an exchange with a real genre bending author. The creator of the Ava Lee series Ian Hamilton says of Kristi’s protagonist Owl – She is an archaeologist, renegade, fantasy game player and thief who lives in a wacky world populated by dragons, nagus and vampires. She is Owl, and we meet her the first time in Owl and the Japanese Circus, a book that’s fast-paced, humorous, action-filled and completely original, Kristi writes about herself – ‘Besides writing, I’m also a scientist. I have a BSc and a MSc from Simon Fraser University in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and a PhD in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. My specialities are genetics, cell biology, and molecular biology, all of which I draw on in my writing. In other words she is a brainiac! CUFFED will join Kristi and Owl on their wild ride chasing vampires and dragons in an Indiana Jane style adventure.
