News and Reviews for Sara Elliott Sommerville
After moving to the Savannah area, I have become involved with several
writers’ groups. ..
The Savannah Writers Group meets two nights each month. Members of the group write from many different genres: poetry, short stories, novels, screen plays and autobiographical material.
Sisters in Crime was founded many years ago, by female mystery authors from all parts of the world. The group meets annually near Washington, DC, at a large conference called Malice Domestic. They also participate in the American Library Association Annual Meeting.
Last summer I was invited to participate in ALA by greeting librarians in the SIC exhibit booth. I signed many of my books and met dozens of librarians.
My mysteries are available in the Live Oak Library System of the Savannah Area. While in Augusta, I did readings at several libraries, and have been asked to do the same here in the Savannah Area.
Life is good!
