What we Rogues talked about, researched, and revealed in May…

May began with a flash—a Rogue Flash, that is. On the second of the month, we announced the winners of the April Rogue Reads Giveaway: Judith from Nebraska and Cindy Bower of Ohio won Fallen Creed and Death of the Black Widow, respectively. Happy reading!

Just a few days later, Chris Holm Went Rogue to scare the living daylights out of us with the science behind the pandemic in his new novel Child Zero.

Where’s a writer to go?

The first week wrapped up with advice from the Rogues in an Ask The Rogues. Eight Rogue Women Writers told us where they go when they need to “unstuck” a plot or find inspiration. Find out where inspiration strikes for our Rogues and tell us where you go to write in the comments of this installment of Ask The Rogues: You’re stuck? Oh, no! Where’s a writer to go?

The second Tuesday of the month heralded in ZJ Czupor with a new Mystery Minute about a best-selling author who lived a lifetime of contradiction and experimentation. She was born with a man’s name into an impoverished family in New Orleans. Wager any guesses on who she may be? Find out in May’s Mystery Minute: She Moved Our Collective Consciousness.

In the middle of the month, Rogue Tracy Clark found an old friend behind a bookshelf. She guides us through her reverie and the character’s impact on her reading and writing in My Old Friend, Harriet The Spy.
