I received both an email and a blog comment a few days ago from Carolyn asking about Clarissa Watson. The gist of the letters is as follows:
“I haven’t noticed any mention of an excellent mystery author, CLARISSA WATSON. She wrote a series of books featuring painter and art expert Persis Willum. The books are intelligent and fun, so much so that I re-read them about every 5 years! Please give them a try if you like international intrigue and a heroine who loves art. I only wish she had written more of them.” AND “Do you have any suggestions on finding another author like Clarissa Watson? She wrote a series of sophisticated, witty mysteries featuring portrait painter and art expert Persis Willum in the 80’s. They are great books…”
Unfortunately, I haven’t read any novels written by Clarissa Watson, so I really can’t begin to suggest authors who are similar to her. I will be adding a page dedicated to her on the site, though.
The reason for this blog::: Are any of you familiar with Clarissa Watson, and if so, do you know of any authors who are similar to her? I would love to hear from you… via comment or letter.
Thanks a lot… I know that we can make this a cozier world if we want…
