As I type this the Olympics are in full swing and there is an uproar, rightly so, over the way the media is treating the female athletes. If you don’t know about it, it is in regards to their degrading comments that have nothing to do with the women’s athletic abilities.  Sadly, this is not new for women.

Not for women athletes.

Not for women crime/mystery/thriller writers.

Recently, an article in The Atlantic declared, rightly so, that women writers are dominating the crime/mystery/etc. market with books that have twisty, emotional characters that reek havoc on the supporting cast. The author, a male, admitted to reading and enjoying these type of novels. It’s nice to see that these writers are receiving some of the attention they deserve.  I can only hope this continues and translates to better book contracts for women authors.
