"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."

"I could not be more excited to share this interview with you all. I attended an incredible writing conference "When Worlds Collide" in Calgary, this past August. There were so many fantastic speakers present. So, I was thrilled when I reached out to one of the speakers that truly resonated with me, and inspired some changes to my own writing process. Please give a very warm welcome to SG Wong. Grab a hot beverage, take a seat and dive into her "Meet The Author" interview."
