R: What is the craziest thing you've ever done? Break into the high school. It was Saturday morning and I had left my violin at school. We found a window opened a crack and they boosted me up to get into the instrument room. I snatched my violin, piled up some tympani or tuba cases or something big and climbed back out. Monday, at school, they told us there had been a break in and money was taken from the office!
We never told what we did. Maybe the thief got in the window we left open, who knows? R: What do you hope readers will most take away from your writing? I want to entertain people. To take them away from the real world. I love to make people laugh. A county fair is involved, and a lot of butter.

There will be a third in this series. I may be able to finish up a nearly-done sequel in the Carraway series before I start number three. R: Are you a plotter or a pantser? I plot in the beginning. I have to have a framework to hang my words on. Inevitably, the characters and the plot take off and veer from my original plan, but the main parts are there for stability. R: Do you have any advice for beginning writers? A lot. Find other writers. For me, the other writers I rely on are the Guppy chapter of Sisters in Crime.
This was important to me when we moved from Dallas to the boonies and I left my book group and my critique group. The most important trait of a published writer, besides some talent and hard work and all that reading , is persistence. It is not at all easy to get published, if you want someone else to publish you. Just for Fun:. Night or Day? Dog or Cat? I love them both!
Beach or Pool? If you had said Mountain, I would choose that. Steak or salad? Can I have both?

Of Cats and Cozies….. Most of the mysteries on my bookshelf, I confess, are cozy mysteries. Remember the old Murder She Wrote series? The detectives in such stories are nearly always amateurs cue JB Fletcher sometimes retired lawmen or women. The majority of the detectives are of the female persuasion, and often hold jobs that bring them into contact with the other residents of their town. If there is violence, it happens off-screen…no grisly murder scenes depicted in any cozies!
Foul language is also kept to a minimum. The murders are generally members of or related to someone in the town wherein the murder occurs and the motives — greed, jealousy, revenge — often are deep rooted. Animal lovers are also well represented, as well, which brings me to my cozy mystery series, debuting in December from Berkley Prime Crime….. My series is the Nick and Nora mystery series. Nora is Nora Charles, ex-crime reporter turned restaraunt entrepreneur. Shortly thereafter, Nora finds a surprise waiting outside her door — a stocky, black and white cat.
Back in her hometown, Nora reconnects with old friends and makes some new ones, like Nick, the charming feline who seems determined to be her cat.
But not everything about Cruz is friendly. Writing for a local online magazine, Nora investigates the curious death of socialite Lola Grainger.
See a Problem?
Though it was deemed an accident, Nora suspects foul play. And it seems that her cat does too.
Apparently, Nick used to belong to a P. The coincidence is spooky, but not as spooky as the clues Nick spells out for her with Scrabble letters—clues that lead her down an increasingly dangerous path. Want to win a selection of my favorite cozies? Leave your name and email address in the comments section, and tell us why you love cozy mysteries!
If they feature cats so much the better LOL.
