 In Memoriam

It is with deep sadness that we note the loss of three of our colleagues in crime writing this year.

Prentice Bill squareBill Prentice (1952-2022)

For thirty years, Bill worked as a freelance writer. Starting with television scripts and segueing into policy papers and international finance, it was as if he was always meant to write a critically acclaimed financial thriller and become the Treasurer of Crime Writers of Canada. He certainly made a home for himself with CWC.

John Worsley Simpson (1944-2022)simpson jw

A past Director for Toronto/Southwestern Ontario Region, and an active member and supporter of Crime Writers of Canada, John was the creator of the critically acclaimed Harry Stark series of Canadian crime fiction novels, comprising eight books.

Blair MichaelwebsiteMichael Blair (1946-2022)

Michael Blair was a past president of CWC and active in the organization even when he wasn't on the board. Michael retired from crime writing a few years ago, but he is fondly remembered by all who knew him.
