How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
A mystery requires a good deal of planning. There must be several suspects, and enough hints and clues scattered throughout the novel, without giving away the identity of the murderer.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write a lot and read a lot. Join writers’ associations. Find good, honest critique partners.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to place my free-spirited sleuth in an upscale community where she didn’t feel quite at home. This mystery is a tribute to Agatha Christie and the legacy she’s left to all mystery writers.
