Quick update… Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet lately, but as I have mentioned before, I live in San Antonio… which has been having some of the worst weather it has seen in decades over the last week or so. Well, long story short, we’ve had power and internet and other utility problems, so I’ve more or less been trying to ride that out instead of fighting to get online. We were never in any actual personal danger… the worst we have seen in our household is a few days without running water, which we were thankfully prepared for by the time it hit, and that the situation was upsetting enough to our poor dog Cocoa that she was ill for a few days. Still, we’re all alive and fine now, and I hope that all my fellow Texas residents have “weathered the storm” as well as we have.
Anyway! It seems like the worst of that is past. I thought that since I haven’t been online a bit lately, I should also write up something more on theme about Cozies, so… Normally I might not mention the sort of thing below, just sort of do it in the background, but still, it’s more cheerful than just complaining about power outages.
Anyway (again…), I’ve added a pair of new pseudonyms to existing site authors. First, Anna Gerard (aka Diane A.S. Stuckart and Ali Brandon) writes the Georgia B&B Mystery Series, which stars Nina Fleet, B&B owner in a historic Queen Anne house in Cymbeline, Georgia. As Stuckart she writes the Leonardo da Vinci Historical Mystery Series. The series features Dino, da Vinci’s apprentice, and is set in the late 1400s. As Brandon she writes the paranormal Black Cat Bookshop Mystery Series.
I’ve also added Elizabeth Logan (aka Camille Minichino, Ada Madison, Margaret Grace, & Jean Flowers), who writes the Alaskan Diner Mystery Series, which stars chef Charlotte “Charlie Cooke”, returning to her home town of Elkview, Alaska, to take over her mother’s diner. As Madison, she writes the Sophie Knowles Mystery Series which features a college professor/beader/sleuth in Massachusetts. As Minichino she writes the Periodic Table Mystery Series which is also set in Massachusetts, with several books taking place (as trips) in California. As Grace, she writes the Miniature Mystery Series which is set in California. And as Flowers she writes the Postmistress Mystery Series, which features Cassie Miller as its sleuth.
