For those of you who are “regulars” to the Cozy Mystery site, you know that every once in a while I add new authors to the site. These are always authors who you all have told me “belong” on the site. Of course, as I have not read the authors (if I had, they would probably already be on the site!)

Linda French French writes the Professor Teodora Morelli Mystery Series, which features an nontenured history professor in Seattle, Washington. French is a professor of history in Washington state…
Ron Goulart Goulart pens the Groucho Marx Mystery Series. This series is based on Groucho Marx, a “real person” who was an actor and comedian in the 1930s+ Hollywood.
Susan Hill Hill writes the British police procedural called the Simon Serrailler Mystery Series. The series begins with Serrailler being a Chief Inspector and follows him as he is promoted to Detective Chief Superintendent. (Reportedly Not Cozy) Hill also writes Stand Alone mysteries.
Betty Webb Webb is an ex-journalist who teaches creative writing. She writes the Lena Jones Mystery Series, which features a private investigator in Arizona. Webb also writes the Gunn Zoo Mystery Series, which has, as its sleuth, a zookeeper in California. (Both series are reportedly not cozy)
Don Yarber Yarber writes the Kip Yardley Mystery Series. This series features a Los Angeles private detective who used to be a highway patrol officer. Yarber states that his books “do not use a lot of graphic sex scenes, foul language or deeply disturbed psycho-babble”…
