Jasmine as been first, Bulletin Editor, and then also Secretary of the Dorothy L Sayers Society, starting in 1995. I also answer as many as possible of the questions which come in to the firstname.lastname@example.org address, which has taught me a pretty good knowledge of Sayers and her works. I am also a member of the Margery Allingham Society, and a devotee of Golden Age detective fiction, but with fairly wide-ranging literary tastes.
