Why I chose a food blogger for my mystery series

Recently I was asked why I chose a food blogger for my amateur sleuth in my mystery novel. The amateur detective in a cozy mystery tends to have a fun career (wedding planner, interior designer, baker) or an interesting hobby (knitting, quilting, gardening) and it’s an important hook for the series. When I set out to write The Uninvited Corpse I decided to make my amateur sleuth, Hope Early, a food blogger and in the video I explain why.

 

 

If you’re interested in cozies I found two websites that have extensive information on series published. The first one is Cozy Mysteries Unlimited and the second one is Cozy Mystery. If you’re a reader of cozies, what is a favorite profession or hobby of an amateur sleuth? If you don’t read cozies, what type of books do you prefer? I love reading across genres and I’m always looking for my next good read.

That’s right, I went Live

In March I took the BIG leap of going Live on Facebook. Yes, it was a little scary. Okay. A lot scary. 🙂 But I survived. I’ve since learned how I can share Facebook Live videos here on my website so that’s what I’ve done. I know, I’m so techy. LOL. Only took a month.

In this video I talk about my second draft process. I hope you enjoy it.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
