About Beverley Bateman

Murder, mystery and romance fills award-winning, Canadian author, Beverley Bateman's life. She loves to plot, kill and hopefully baffle the reader. Her nursing and public health nursing background helps with some details, and administering a community care facility program had her investigating and directing investigations into irregularities and sometimes a death. She even has court experience.

What's Up This Month

Writing News

I hope some of you have checked out at least parts of my website. One of the workshops offered at the RWA convention is Newsletters. I’m hoping I can get to it, and get in. Then my plan is to do a newsletter. The class is on Wednesday before the conference officially begins, so I’m hoping to make it. Hopefully you’ll sign up to get it. I’m only looking at doing one about every 3-4 months.  


The Fourth Victim, first in The Foundation series, is finished and at the editor. It should be back around the end of the month and then it’s time for another edit. In the meantime I’m starting work on The Liability Wife, book two in the series.   


I’m attending the Romance Writers of America’s National conference from July 20-23. Kiss of Death, my writing chapter, has an all day workshop on July 17th. The Denver Field Office of the ATF will be sending Special Agents knowledgeable in many areas including explosives, bombs, firearms trafficking, criminal profiling, financial investigation and the K-0 program, plus a few more to talk to us and answer all our questions. And then July 18th is the Kiss of Death, writing contest awards, The Daphne’s, with writers, authors, editors and agents and sooo much chocolate. 


I’m also going to see a lot of writing friends that I haven’t seen since last year. Lots of fun – can’t wait. When I get back I’ll share some information from some of the workshops.

Enjoy your summer.
