I have once again added some mystery authors to the Cozy Mystery site. I really should get this done more often, since I know that some of you must be wondering what has happened to the authors who you have recommended as belonging on the site.
Here are the most recent five mystery authors who I have added to the site. In one case, there is one actual person holding the pen (I probably should say typing at the keyboard – however, holding a pen just seems to sound more “author-like” to me!) behind two of your recommended authors.
Kathy Aarons: Chocolate Covered Mystery Series
Michelle Serrano and Erica Russell are best friends who own the Chocolates and Chapters store in Maryland. Their store is a combination of a bookstore and a chocolate shop. (I usually don’t like to go shopping, but this shop would definitely entice me!) As an extra bonus, the books contain chocolate-making recipes.
Janet Cantrell (aka Kaye George): Fat Cat Mystery Series
Charity (Chase) Oliver makes delicious treat (in Minneapolis) for a living. Unfortunately, her overweight Tabby (Quincy) has been put on a diet by the veterinarian. However, Chase is willing to make some delicious cat treats for Quincy, since he is always scrounging around looking for his next treat. As a bonus in these Fat Cat mysteries, recipes for treats for people as well as cats are included.
Kaye George (aka Janet Cantrell): Imogene Duckworthy Mystery Series
Imogene is a waitress in Texas who is also a single mom. She lives with her mom, and wants to become an investigator. The first mystery in this series was nominated for the prestigious Agatha Award for Best First Novel.
People of the Wind Mystery Series
I bet you’ve never read a series with this sort of sleuth! Enga Dancing Flower is a Neanderthal woman/sleuth. The first mystery in the series was nominated for the Agatha Award Best Historical Novel.
Cressa Carraway Mystery Series
Cressa is a musician/conductor/sleuth.
D.E. Ireland: Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins Mystery Series
D.E. Ireland is a writing duo of two best friends: Meg Mims and Sharon Pisacreta. The series is loosely based on the characters in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, so of course, the series is set in Edwardian London.
Shirley Tallman (aka Erin Ross): Sarah Woolson Mystery Series
Sarah is an attorney in 1880s San Francisco, California. Tallman’s research shows there were only two other female attorneys in the area at that time. “We’ve come a long way, Baby!” is an expression that comes to my mind! As Erin Ross she writes romance novels.
