Celebrate Cozy Mystery Day with me!

Celebrate Cozy Mystery Day with me!

September 15 is Cozy Mystery Day! Why, you may ask? Because it is Dame Agatha Christie's birthday, and she is widely regarded as the creator of the cozy mystery. A cozy mystery is generally regarded as a mystery with an amateur sleuth like Miss Marple or Murder She Wrote's Jessica Fletcher, who uses her wits to solve a mystery before the proper authorities. The genre consists of clean reads (no sex on the page, no blood and gore, no f-bombs) that can be enjoyed by all ages. ...

Will your next read be a brozy?

Will your next read be a brozy?

A brozy? What's that? Brozy is a new mystery subgenre that is gaining momentum. You may have heard of a cozy mystery, a light entertaining mystery in the tradition of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple or Murder She Wrote. Usually a female protagonist, no gore, no swearing or sex on the page. The amateur sleuth usually has another job, hobby, or interest, and maybe pets. ...

Why doesn't she leave?

Why doesn’t she leave?

I've had some comments from readers of the Reg Rawlins Psychic Investigator series who express disgust or frustration with Reg for having anything to do with Corvin Hunter after becoming aware that he is a predator, and one who has repeatedly made promises that he hasn't kept. I thought maybe this would be a good opportunity to open up a discussion about why those who are abused stay with their abusers for so long. Why don't they just leave? ...
