Colored and Invisible

Last week, Sara Paretsky wrote a great article about the lack of diversity in mystery. I shared my thoughts on this issue (surprise, surprise) with The Life Sentence. In the essay, I say so many things, including:

"If you’re a writer of color and you attend Bouchercon, Malice Domestic, or any of the writing conferences, you already know that there are more robots on Mars than there are colored folks in the banquet room."

What are your thoughts?

  1. Hi Rachel<

    I was looking for the article you wrote and the website link seems to be down, is there somewhere else I can view the essay?

    Thanks
