Short biography
Prime Crime owner Linda Wiken is a mystery writer and mystery fan. In 1995, in a move that put previous shopping sprees to shame, Linda and Mary Jane Maffini bought Prime Crime. Since then, every day has seemed like Christmas, although Mary Jane is no longer an owner, but rather a successful mystery author.

Linda is a longtime volunteer with the Ottawa Police Service and continues to write monthly articles for community newspapers. And sing in their choir. She is the co-editor of Cottage Country Killers, and her short fiction also appears in the other three Ladies' Killing Circle anthologies. Linda's eyes still light up when she comes across a new Canadian author. They also light up when she sees a Siamese cat. But that is neither here nor there.
