"Because she is a Canadian-based author, I first met SG Wong at the Bouchercon in Toronto. (And those headed to Left Coast Crime – Vancouver, be sure to say hi to SG.) Unlike with some authors, where you just pass them in the hallway and say hi, or you see them on a panel and signing event, with SG, it was different. She was one of the co-heads of our Pub Quiz team. A team that also featured, among others, Dru Ann Love, Judy Bobalik, and Deanna Raybourn. Now, we lost – and I still say it was the fault of the multi-part questions – but that doesn’t matter. We had a blast and I am thrilled to introduce you all to SG Wong as part of the Composite Sketch profile series."
