Mary Jane Maffini


aka Victoria Abbott, The Ladies' Killing Circle

Mary Jane Maffini is a lapsed librarian, former co-owner of Ottawa's Prime Crime Mystery Bookstore, member of the Ladies Killing Circle, and author of the Camilla MacPhee mystery series, the Fiona Silk mysteries, and now the Charlotte Adams mysteries. Her short stories - most of them indicating a deep mistrust of little old ladies - can be found in all six Ladies Killing Circle anthologies, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Iced, Cold Blood V, Storyteller Magazine, and other popular publications.

Although like many of her characters she is a native of Nova Scotia, MJ now lives in Ottawa with her long-suffering husband and two princessy miniature dachshunds.
