Welcome!

This site is dedicated to promoting our local mystery writers in Orange County, and adjacent California regions.

Do you love reading a good mystery novel? Do you write mysteries? We meet the fourth Sunday of every month to learn about and discuss all things about crime fiction.

OUR NEXT MEETING

Sunday, July 28, 2pm at the Irvine Ranch Water District*
15500 Sand Canyon Ave.
Irvine, CA 92618-3102

At 2 p.m. Writers/Readers Forum

Our writing/reading discussion group will talk about: Do It for Love: A Look at the Role of Love in Mysteries

At 3 p.m. Author Joe Ide

Our guest speaker this month, Joe Ide, is of Japanese American descent and grew up in South Central Los Angeles. Joe’s favorite books were the Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories. The idea that a person could face the world and vanquish his enemies with just his intelligence fascinated him. Joe went on to earn a graduate degree and had several careers before writing his debut novel, IQ, inspired by his early experiences and love of Sherlock. Joe lives in Santa Monica, California.

His three IQ novels, IQ, Righteous and Wrecked, have each received great reviews.

“Joe Ide is the  best new discovery I’ve come across in a long time.” Michael Connelly

“Having read all three of Joe Ide’s novels about the young Sherlock Holmes of the ’hood, Isaiah Quintabe, I am pleased to say that his third novel, Wrecked, is the best one yet.Thestakes are higher, the suspense more intense, and the addition of a budding romance provides more character depth. Read it, enjoy it, and then impatiently wait around for the next one like the rest of us.
—Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, author of Mycroft Holmes and Coach Wooden and Me
