MUSE is the collective name for novelists Deb LeBlanc, Sarah Langan, Alexandra Sokoloff, and Sarah Pinborough. The four women met at WHC 07 and, despite coming from parts of the world as distant as the deep south and the UK, instantly recognised in each other a shared ambition, humour and drive along with of course a love of the, horror/suspense/thriller genres. An instant bond was formed, and after a flurry of emails, so was MUSE.The women are working on a very unique collaborative book project (soon to be announced), and will all be tutors at the 2008 Pen to Press Retreat in New Orleans as well as attending WFC 07 and WHC 08. They hope to undertake signing tours together and have a series of other exciting projects in the pipeline.
