Welcome! Capitol Crimes is the Sacramento, California chapter of Sisters in Crimes, an international mystery writers organization. We offer networking, advice and support to mystery writers. Founded by double Anthony winner, Terris McMahan Grimes in 1996, we are authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, librarians and fans bound by our affection for the mystery genre and our support of those who write mysteries.
