Cozy Mystery Spotlights and Interviews
For Women’s History Month, I felt it was only fitting to pay homage to the
female authors of the past who continue to captivate mystery readers across
generations. With their boundary-breaking literature, these women have
influenced and motivated a multitude of incredible female authors who continue
to expand upon their foremother’s legacy. To celebrate their achievements, I
asked a few women currently making history in the mystery genre about the female
inspirations Read More...
It’s almost here! Can you feel it? Can you smell it in the air? Well, you can
definitely see it in all the fresh new cozies popping up everywhere! Take a
moment in your day to stop and savor the mysteries—they’re bright, they’re
charming, and they’ll lead you on an exciting chase for a killer.
Missy Dubois is the definition of southern charm in the small town of
Bleu Bayou, Louisiana. She’s got sass and spunk, with a style everyone wants—and
Sandra Bretting has brought her to life in a most entertaining way with her Missy Dubois
I was elated when Ms. Bretting agreed to sit down in our Cozy Corner and Read More...
As a reader, book covers catch my eye. As a writer, titles draw me in. My three
features this week were complete head-turners that had me hooked at first sight.
From the natural born enemies of MISSION IMPAWSIBLE , to
cozy southern charm of WAR
AND PEACH, to the wispy fresh breezes of the Oregon Read More...
January is one of those months I find myself snuggling up in front of the fire
with a good book instead of doing my grocery shopping. A good cozy mystery beats
bundling up in layers and driving to the grocery store feeling like the Michelin
Man stuffed inside a clown car any day. And if it means my family has to eat
frozen pizza again, so be it. They’ll survive until the temperature rises Read More...
It’s almost time to sing Auld Lang Syne and as I reflect over the blogs I’ve
posted for 2016, I realize what an amazing year I’ve had on the Cozy Corner. I’ve had the
incredible opportunity to interview authors whose experiences and careers are as
varied as the mystery genre they write. Many thanks to Fresh Fiction and the
generous writers Read More...
Kym: “Today I have the pleasure of sitting down with Charli Rae
Warren in her hometown of Hazel Rock, Texas for an interview. Charli is a
kindergarten teacher who came back to Hazel Rock after a twelve-year absence!
She’s also an imaginary friend of Read More...
What better way to celebrate Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, than by
featuring a few of my favorite e-book authors and publishers! I find it very
appealing to help self-published authors, indie publishing houses and smaller
publishing houses who focus on the e-reader (two are also available in print
format) while being rewarded with murdously fabulous mysteries! From a recent
release, to a current release, I then finished with a soon Read More...
November is an important month for our country. It’s a month of freedom and
expression. It’s a month of giving thanks to the men and women who’ve served our
country in the military. And it’s a month to celebrate the unity between the
Pilgrims and Native Americans—a spirit of giving that is the core of America’s
foundation. I’d like to give thanks to the many authors who’ve Read More...

talented and vastly loved throughout the world of mystery writing. Please

Halloween doesn’t have to mean adding inches to your waistline, although that
certainly is a delicious way to celebrate the holiday;) Our cozy authors,
however, have given you another outlet for that addictive gene dying to take
over—and it’s better for your weight, better for your teeth, and much better for
your mind! Skip the sugar, and the corn syrup, and possibly the Hershey’s all
together this Halloween, or at least Read More...
There are a few things that are an absolute must in the world of cozy mysteries,
but first and foremost are the animals. A quirky, troublesome pet defines the
genre—at least for me it does. I look for the image on the cover, a hint of a
fur baby in the title or the series, and absolutely eat up the pages where the
characters spend time with their ever loyal pet(s). Whether it Read More...
