THE WICKED AUTHORS BLOG just celebrated five years of blogging. At the start, the Wickeds only had three published books collectively; now each boasts at least one Agatha Award nomination. The Wickeds are comprised of six authors but at there are 12 different pseudonyms. A few of the series are set outside of New England. Visit the blog and join the conversation about all things mystery.

Jessica Ellicott lives in New Hampshire, knitting wool socks and enthusiastically speaking Portuguese with a shocking disregard for the rules of grammar. As Jessie Crockett, she writes the Sugar Grove and Granite State mysteries. Ms. Ellicott writes the Change of Fortune series as Jessica Estevao.

Sherry Harris started bargain hunting in second grade at her best friend’s yard sale. While her husband served in the Air Force, she honed her bartering skills across the country. Ms. Harris uses her love of garage sales, her life as a military spouse, and her time living in Massachusetts as inspiration for the Sarah Winston Garage Sale series.

Julie Hennrikus writes the Clock Shop series as Julianne Holmes, the Theater Cop series as J.A. Hennrikus, and the Garden Squad series as Julia Henry.

Edith Maxwell has been nominated for Agatha and Macavity Awards. Ms. Maxwell writes the Quaker Midwife Mysteries, the Local Foods Mysteries, and award-winning short stories. As Maddie Day, she writes the Country Store Mysteries and the new Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries. Ms. Maxwell is president of Sisters in Crime New England and lives north of Boston.

Liz Mugavero writes the Pawsitively Organic Mysteries, as well as the Cat Cafe Mysteries as Cate Conte.,

 Barbara Ross is the author of six Maine Clambake Mysteries. The seventh, Steamed Open, will be published in December 2018. Her novella featuring Julia Snowden is included along with stories by Leslie Meier and Lee Hollis in Eggnog Murder. A second anthology, Yule Log Murder, is coming October 30.

About Sherlock's Last Case

Take a trip to Baker Street with the legendary Sherlock Holmes and his trusted sidekick Dr. Watson, to solve the seemingly perfect crime. When a threat is made against Holmes' life by the son of his longtime nemesis, Moriarty, not everything is as it appears. The game’s afoot with equal parts hilarity and intrigue in the long-overdue Boston premiere of this murderously funny comedy-thriller, directed by Huntington favorite Maria Aitken (Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 StepsBedroom Farce).

Approximate run time: Sherlock's Last Case run approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes, including one ten-minute intermission. Please note: This production includes theatrical haze, a strobe lighting effect, and the smoking of cocoa shell cigarettes (100% nicotine free).

Maria Aitkin“I have spent an uneasy year away from the Huntington, working all the time, but feeling deprived of my true theatrical home. Now, thank heaven, I'm doing Sherlock’s Last Case in the fall – a brilliant and eccentric comedy – and I will be united with my favorite theatre in the world, staffed by wonderful people who anticipate my every whim. I can't wait.”— Maria Aitken
