My Mom always read Agatha Christie novels, and I could never get into them. Then I read a Stephanie Plum Novel, and shortly after, I saw a movie based on the same character. Stephanie Plum. I realized I liked Stephanie Plum-the character a lot.
Anyway, the book, Writing the Cozy Mystery by Nancy J Cohen–turned on a whole set of “lights” on in my creative brain. I can’t wait to read the “A Bad Hair Day Mysteries” by Nancy J Cohen.
If you are a writer, don’t miss “Writing the Cozy Mystery”. I know about the structure of writing, but it was “Writing the Cozy Mystery’ that connected all the “switches”.
Thanks, Nancy J Cohen! 3.75/5 stars for Writing the Cozy Mystery.
I’m pretty tough on my ratings; my four and five shelves have very few books on them. Bravo! Bravo! Excellent book. I can’t wait to get the paper copy from Amazon. Now, I’m going to read my first of the “Bad Hair Day Mysteries”. I don’t think “cozy mystery” conveys the real deal–the protagonist has to be someone the reader wants to get to know about her personal life while she solves murders! Thanks, Nancy J. Cohen!

Complete edits on Murder at Your Service, an original mystery that I plan to indie publish. (NOT DONE; put this project on the back burner.)
Implement marketing plan for Hanging By A Hair, #11 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries, due out in…
