Last weekend, I heard from someone who gave me the names of thirteen new authors for the site. I know that thirteen is an unlucky number in the mystery book business, but, since I don’t write the cozies that I tell you about… then I consider thirteen to be a very lucky number… AND am hoping that of the thirteen new authors she recommended, a few of them fall right into the cozy mystery book style for which you are searching.
But, since I haven’t started working on these particular authors, let me take the time to tell you about a few new authors who I just posted. All of them were recommended by readers of the site… I haven’t been able to try out their books, but they sure do look interesting!

(I have included Dunn’s series in the Antiquing Theme, although, technically…)
Kaitlyn Dunnett: A lot of you are familiar with Kaitlyn Dunnett, but just might not be aware of the fact that Dunnett and Kathy Lynn Emerson happen to be the same author… with different series “between them.” As Dunnett, she is starting a new series which is quite different from the “Emerson series.” It is the Liss MacCrimmon Mystery Series, which features a member of a Scottish Dance Troupe in Maine. As Emerson, she has the very popular Lady Susanna Appleton Mystery Series, which features a 1600s herbalist. (That series is found in both the Historical Theme page and the Gardening Theme page.) She also writes the Diana Spaulding Mystery Series, which features a descendant of Lady Appleton as an1800s reporter. (Also found on the Historical Theme page.)
Lisa Lutz: Lutz writes the Izzy Spellman Mystery Series, which features a P.I. in San Francisco. Her first novel was nominated for three prestigious mystery awards: the Anthony, the Barry, and the Macavity Awards.
Hope McIntyre (aka Caroline Upcher): McIntyre (the pseudonym for her crime fiction) writes about something she knows first-hand… ghostwriting. Having been a ghostwriter (as well as several other professions—including editor) she now writes the Lee Bartholomew Mystery Series featuring a ghostwriter…
