Carol Crigger's Writing Pages

C
An Idaho native who resides in Washington, Crigger writes fiction set in the northwest, which she thinks is underrepresented in western writing. She is currently concentrating her efforts on her China Bohannon stories, a historical mystery series set in Spokane, Washington. A Spur Award finalist in 2007 for short fiction (Aldy Neal’s Ghost,) and again in 2009 in audio (Letter of the Law,) Crigger has also served several times as a Spur Award judge, moderated panels at the WWA conventions, and writes book reviews and occasional articles for Roundup Magazine. She pitched for and won the 2005 WWA convention which was held in Spokane, when the hosts were local members. She’s been a proud WWA member since October, 2000.
