S2.ep 6 Joanne Paulson

An interview with journalist, editor, crime writer, and the CWC representative of Saskatchewan, Joanne Paulson.

About Joanne,

J.C. Paulson thinks a mystery can — perhaps should — also be a love story.

Switching from fact (journalism) to fiction, it seemed a natural thing to combine the two. Evil versus good. Hate versus love. Think Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane, and a host of cozy mystery couples — not that her first three novels, Adam's Witness, Broken Through and Fire Lake, are very cozy.

Changing the world would be nice, too. Fiction allows us to swallow the bitter pills of social injustice and still (hopefully) be entranced, entertained and entangled in their solutions.

A rabid reader of mystery novels, J.C. Paulson has long admired the works of Dorothy Sayers, P.D. James and Ann Cleeves. She lives in a rambling bungalow on a quiet street in a Canadian prairie city with her husband.
