Cozy Mystery Spotlights and Interviews
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...

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...
Fall is almost here, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it! The summer heat has
dug in its heels and driven me to a cozy air-conditioned corner with a
cold brew, a little spice and a honeymoon to boot—all of them, of course,
fictional. I enjoyed all three of this week’s feature mysteries that took me on
a tour from Monticello, to Seattle, to Pittsburgh, PA. And all three Read More...
I must be dreaming; otherwise Mary Kennedy wouldn’t be sitting in the Cozy
Corner answering all my questions. Yet a pinch of my arms proves I’m not in lala
land, but rather sitting at my computer absolutely thrilled to meet my long time
Facebook buddy, bestselling author of A PREMONITION OF MURDER,

It doesn’t matter where you are, what century you live in, or what culture you
embrace, you will always find a woman on a mission—to better her life, help
loved ones accomplish goals, or improve her community; she is driven to make a
difference. This week I have three women ready to put evil in it’s place. After
all, crime cannot be solved by man alone—but maybe, a woman hell-bent Read More...
Since I’m a secret readaholic who loves cloak and dagger mysteries, my choices
this week shouldn’t put you at death’s door or make you scream bloody murder.
They should make you want to step into the garden where time stands still for
your very own suspenseful reading gala. If you haven’t caught on yet, you will
when you see my top three choices of cozy reads this week.
Come on! The Read More...
Summer vacation doesn’t get any better than a little time off at the beach. But
I must have a couple cozy mysteries with me or I’ll get a little antsy—even if
there are no pests around. This month there are some awesome new releases you
are sure to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for a paperback, or an eBook for your
Kindle or Nook, I’ve got four great suggestions.
