What’s New to the Cozy Mystery Site

May 16, 2015
I’ve added a few more authors to the Cozy Mystery site! Most of these were recommendations from Cozy Mystery readers like you. Thank you! (I can’t believe it has taken since 2006 to finally add a Arthur Conan Doyle page to the site!)

Amanda Carmack writes the Elizabethan Mystery Series, which revolves around then Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth I) and her musician, Kate Haywood. She writes romance novels as Amanda McCabe and Laurel McKee, which have earned her many award nominations. Amanda lives in Oklahoma with two cats and two dogs.

Largely responsible for popularizing detective fiction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Arthur Conan Doyle was the author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle held two knighthoods – a Knight Bachelor of England, and a Knight of Grace of the Order of Saint John, both earned for his humanitarian work as a volunteer doctor during the Second Boer War. Though Sherlock Holmes was by far Doyle’s most popular work, Doyle came to consider the detective with a surprising amount of ambivalence, famously slaying him off and later resurrecting him due to fan demand.

Formerly a lawyer, Shamini Flint quit her job to be a full time mom, and later became an author. After starting out with the Sasha Series and Diary Series children’s books, she went on to author the Inspector Singh Investigates Mystery Series, starring Singaporean Inspector Singh. Though Singh might seem like a slightly bumbling, over weight man, his appearance belies a keen detective’s mind and a talent for catching crooks.

Linda Rodriguez spent much of her childhood moving around with her career Navy father. Eventually she went to the University of Missouri, Kansas City, for both Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees, then put these to work as an administrator at the University. After retiring from administration work, she began the Skeet Bannion Mystery Series, drawing on her experience both attending and working at the University to write about Marquitta “Skeet” Bannion, the chief of campus police at a small college.

Here are two new Guideposts mystery series I just added to the site this morning:

Secrets of Blue Hill Library Mystery Series    Emily Thomas is the author of the Secrets of Blue Hill Library Mystery Series. The series stars Anne Gibson as its sleuth. Anne inherits her great-aunt’s old, Victorian house and asks that Anne convert it into the town’s library. While converting the Victorian into a library, Anne discovers a secret room. It’s a good thing Anne has an inquiring mind, as she decides to solve the mystery of this secret room.

Mysteries of Silver Peak Mystery Series   Carole Jefferson is the author of the Mysteries of Silver Peak Mystery Series. This series features the owner of an antiques shop in Colorado. The sleuth, Sadie Speers, conducts background research on the antiques she sells in her shop. While doing these searches, she sometimes finds there are mysteries that are attached to the items, which she absolutely has got to solve!

I truly appreciate it when Cozy Mystery readers write to let me know about corrections and/or additions I need to make for pages on my Cozy Mystery site. Thanks to ALL of you who send me notes/letters. These letters/notes are the way I have heard about a lot of the Guideposts series.

Guideposts is a company that has “Inspiration. Faith. Hope.” as their mission. They have published many different mystery series (as well as non mystery series). I have finally made up their own page, that has links to all of the different Guideposts series I have on the site.

Guideposts Mysteries (and Non Mystery) Series

If you go to the Guideposts page, there are links that will take you directly to all nine of the series’ pages on my site.

Vannetta Chapman – Vanetta Chapman has worked as a teacher, a pianist, an adjunct professor of English Literature, and a church secretary, all of which have been good purposes for her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English. She is the author of mulitple series, including the Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series, the Jacobs Family Mystery Series, and the Amish Village Mystery Series.

Maya Corrigan – Maya Corrigan is the author of the Five-Ingredient Mystery Series, starring Val Deniston, manager of
a fitness club café, Cool Down Cafe. Corrigan has taught college classes in writing and literature, designed online learning courses, and has written nonfiction.

Ellery Adams aka Jennifer Stanley & J.B. Stanley

March 10, 2015
It’s time once again to add another batch of Cozy Mystery authors to the site! This time I’ll be adding 5 authors, each with at least one interesting looking Cozy Series! These are all Cozy Mystery authors who you all have recommended as belonging on the site.

Kerry J Charles  With her previous experience as a researcher, writer, and editor for various educational institutions and museums, it should be no surprise that Kerry J Charles’s main series, the Dulcie Chambers Mystery Series (starring Dulcinea Chambers, a museum curator), draws on her rich background and experience.

Eva Gates (aka Vicki Delany)  Gates might have the expertise of a computer programmer, but she is more than welcome in the arena of Cozy Mystery writing! Eva has long since retired from her “day job” and settled into writing full time – thankfully for us! Eva writes the Lighthouse Library Mystery Series which features librarian Lucy Richardson and Charles, the library cat. As Vicki Delany she writes the Constable Molly Smith Mystery Series and Klondike Mystery Series. Delany also writes the Merry Wilkinson Mystery Series.

Heather Horrocks    Horrocks writes both Cozy Mysteries and romantic comedies. One of her Cozy series is the Who-Dun-Him Inn Mystery Series which features Vicki Butler, a widowed, single mom who happens to love all-things mystery, thus the sleuthing. Horrocks also writes the Bad Mothers Club Mystery Series which takes place in Denver, Colorado, and features a stay-at-home mom who sleuths outside-the-home!

T.C. LoTempio   LoTempio is the loving caretaker of four precocious felines, so it’s no wonder that her Cozy Mystery series features Nick, the sleuth’s cat. Her Nick and Nora Mystery Series stars Nora Charles, sandwich shop owner, and her cat Nick, as they try to solve crimes together.

Mary Grace Murphy   Murphy is a retired school teacher of 30+ years who decided to fulfill one of her life-long ambitions and write a book – fortunately for us Cozy Mystery fans! Her Noshes Up North Mystery Series stars Nell Bailey, a recently retired widow who has started a food blog. When Nell started her food review blogging, she thought honesty is the best policy, however, not everyone agrees with Nell’s negative reviews…

March 7, 2015
Since I had asked the Cozy Mystery readers over at my blog to tell us which cats in Cozy Mysteries were their favorites, I decided to give our canine friends the same treatment! Here is a list of our favorite dogs in Cozies:

Favorite Dogs in Cozy Mysteries

This list is sort of an addendum to the Dogs in Cozy Mysteries theme: Dogs are Cozy, Too!

Well, it’s that time once again – time to add another set of authors to the site. This time I decided to put up pages for five new Cozy Mystery authors. Thanks again for all the recommendations you send me.

Ellie Alexander   (aka Kate Dyer-Seeley) Alexander writes the Bakeshop Mystery Series which takes place in a small, quaint town in Oregon. Jules Capshaw is both the sleuth and an employee at her family Torte Bakeshop. This series includes recipes. As Dyer-Seeley, she writes the Pacific Northwest Mystery Series, which features a journalist (Meg Reed) who works at an outdoor magazine, when she’s not really an outdoor type of girl!

Sherry Harris   Harris writes the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery Series. Sarah’s husband has left her so she has turned to garage sale bargain shopping as a way to take her mind off her troubles. Oh, and Sarah also does a little sleuthing!

Christine Husom    Husom writes the Snow Globe Mystery Series which features Cami Brooks as its sleuth. Cami is the manager at a gift shop. She teaches classes on snow globe construction. Cami has the special gift of seeing crime scenes in snow globes. Husom also writes the Winnebago County Mystery Series which is a mystery thriller series.

Maggie King    King, an ex software developer, writes a Cozy Mystery series that most of us can identify with: the Book Group Mystery Series. The sleuth, Hazel Rose, is a romance writer and co-founder of a mystery book group.

Ruth Moose    Moose is an ex-teacher of Creative Writing at Univ. of North Carolina/Chapel Hills. She now writes the Beth McKenzie Mystery Series – and is still teaching creative writing. The Dixie Dew is a Bed and Breakfast that Beth McKenzie has
opened in her hometown of Littleboro, North Carolina.

Alice Boatwright     Boatwright spent several years in England, inspiring her star detective of her new Ellie Kent Mystery Series, an American professor working in England. Though a divorcée, she is now the wife of a British vicar living in the English Cotswolds.

Elissa D. Grodin     Though she started her career in journalism, Elissa D. Grodin quickly moved from children’s books and eventually into Cozy Mysteries! Grodin writes the Edwina Goodman Mystery Series, about a physics instructor at an Ivy League school, Cushing College. Grodin lives in Connecticut and New York with her husband, actor Charles Grodin.

Dani Pettrey   Dani Pettrey is a homeschool teacher in Maryland, and considers faith a vital part of her life. Pettrey writes the Alaskan Courage Mystery Series, set in the Alaskan town of Yancey and revolving around the members of the McKenna family.
