I write in two different genres. I’m currently writing a fiction mystery but I confess that I haven’t worked on it in a while. I also enjoy writing a non-fiction blog but, again, I haven’t been adding to it as consistently as I’d like.
I love writing mysteries because that’s my favorite genre to read. I like all mysteries but am partial to cozies where character development, and setting, are as important as the plot. Cozies are usually written as a series so I also enjoy the progression of the main characters (at least those who don’t get killed off).
A few writers that I prefer are: Janet Evanovich, Diane Mott Davidson, Sally Goldenbaum, Sheila Connolly, Linda O. Johnston, Charlaine Harris, Elizabeth Peters, Nancy Pickard and non-cozy authors Nelson DeMille, Harlan Coben and Mary Higgens Clark.
I enjoy writing my non-fiction blog posts for two reasons. First, it’s like an online diary where I can record some of the more memorable times in my life with those I love. Second, it allows me a creative outlet and is a lot cheaper than professional therapy!
What are some of your favorite authors and do you prefer to write in the genre in which you read?
