How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I write humorous mysteries, so there is plenty of fun along the way, with no violence on the page and no swearing – and, of course, I have to make sure everything ties up in the end.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t give up! You’ll get there.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started out reading Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers, Ngaio Marsh and Arthur Conan Doyle, and I go back to their stories time and again, both on the page and on TV and film. Miss Marple has to be one of my all-time favorite characters in a book! More recently, I have enjoyed mysteries written by Charlaine Harris, Alexander McCall Smith and M C Beaton.
With the Emily Castles Mysteries, I wanted to create stories that use some of the enduringly popular ingredients from the golden age of British crime writing.
