do the dishes afterward), and scooping out settings for the second Sin City
But when I sat down to write only one setting from my trip stuck in Read More...

hero, who would drag his heroine unwittingly into his shadowy world Read More...

where real life experience colored my reading choices. But, over time, Iíve
grown to love
the second chance romance. There is something about a couple being so attracted

The essence of a cozy mystery, as I see it, is real life, with some components
stretched and exaggerated for effect.
