SG Wong is the creator of the Lola Starke series of novels and of the Crescent City short stories, written in the tradition of the hard-boiled detective genre, with two-fingers’ worth of noir and a liberal sprinkling of magic and ghosts thrown in for good measure.

SG Wong has been a finalist for the Arthur Ellis Awards, in the Best First Novel and Best Short Story categories, as well as a nominee for the Whistler Independent Book Awards. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and works in a lovely blue office where she can often be found staring out the window in between frenzied bouts of typing.

With fellow Edmonton author, Janice MacDonald, and Calgary author/editor, Axel Howerton, at the launch of the crime fiction anthology, AB Negative (Coffin Hop Press, 2015).

Janice MacDonald was the first to set a mystery series in Edmonton. Her Randy Craig novels are fun, fast-paced, and grounded in the titular character's intelligence and sense of humour. Start with Sticks + Stones.
