Guest Blogger: Norma Huss

Location, Location, Location  by Norma Huss You know what they say about buying or selling a home. The three most important attributes of a home are location, location, and, of course, location. How about a mystery? Maybe location isn’t  all three of the top choices, but it does play an important role. When I wrote …

Guest Blog: “Thank an Author Day” – by Leslie Budewitz

GUEST BLOGGER: AGATHA AWARD WINNING AUTHOR LESLIE BUDEWITZ Thank an Author Day     I’d like to declare a new holiday: Thank an Author Day. Now I realize that coming from a writer, this sounds completely self-serving–because who doesn’t like to hear thanks? To hear praise, to hear that your work entertained someone, or helped them …

Musings on Malice by DHG

Malice Domestic XXIV has ended – amazingly!  As a dedicated cozy mystery reader (and writer), I have long realized that many of my favorite authors are Agatha winners and that the Agathas are awarded each year during the Malice Domestic Conference.  Research, a writer’s second best tool, revealed that Malice is one of the largest …

Toss in Those Red Herrings by Sally Carpenter

How can stinky fish help you write a mystery? “Red herrings,” a staple in classic/traditional mysteries, refers to false suspects and clues that the writer sets up to confuse the reader.

Guest Blog: A Passion for Chocolate-or Chocolate for Passion? by Judy Alter

MAYBE I SHOULD HUG YOU ……..by Debra H. Goldstein

When I turned 50, it was like a switch flipped and caused my knees to ache, my cholesterol to go sky high, and my upper arms to get a flabby chicken look. My kids gave me a bored look of sympathy, but my friends got it. No matter that we say 50 is the new …
