Deb Richardson-Moore to Visit the Upstate SC Chapter of SinC September 1, 2016

It’s not often that the Upstate SC Chapter of SinC gets to welcome an author, pastor, and newspaper writer. Deb Richardson-Moore fits this bill. As an author, Deb wrote the novel, The Cantaloupe Thief, released in June and a 2013 memoir, The Weight of Mercy. As a pastor, Deb serves the non- denominational Triune Mercy Center in Greenville, where she works to make homeless parishioners feel respected, loved – and deserving of a pastor who dresses up for them, even in high heels. As a writer for The Greenville News for 27 years, Deb covered art, theater, general features and religion.

For more information on Deb, skip to the bottom of this post.

Sisters in Crime meetings are open to readers and writers of all genders and genres. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 1, at The Runway Café, 21 Airport Rd, Greenville, S.C.
