You know, I started thinking the other day, (my husband always likes it when I do that!) – am I more likely to try a new Cozy Mystery series by an author who is a woman, or would I look at both female and male authors in the same manner?
I know which authors fill my TBR (to be read) bookshelf, and I have to admit that there are a whole lot more women authors than men crammed into each tier of my TBR (To Be Read) shelf unit. I mean, I have male authors in my “favorites” group but there are, by far, a lot less of them than women authors.
Is it because women authors simply lend themselves to being “Cozy”-er than their male counterparts? Is it that several best selling male authors have “ruined it” for the other male authors by including their craziest male fantasies into every novel they publish? I mean, I can only take so much of the 007 graphic “womanizing” (and that’s a tame word for it!!!) before I simply say… “In your dreams, Buddy!”
Do any of you have definite preferences when choosing to try a new mystery author?
