I have been trying to update my authors’ chronological lists these past few days, and I am also currently trying to sort "my authors" by their main character’s professions. I know that there are already many different sites that have the professions of the main characters already sorted out, but I just decided that I wanted to see what I came up with. So far, I have a whole lot of professions… there are a lot of characters who are librarians, culinary specialists such as chefs, restaurant owners, caterers, and bakery owners. There are journalist, housewives, and teachers.
But, there are also some very nontraditional professions… It seems like crafts of all sorts are starting to become very popular in cozy mysteries … We have knitters, cardmakers, gourd artists, needlecrafters, quilters, soapmakers, candlemakers, beaders, and even milliners!
And, if you are trying to find a way to combine your love for gardening and cozies… you are in luck! We have herbalists, horticulturist, and gardeners of all types! If you love the sight of green grass… but not to tend/nurture it… rather to play on it…. we even have golfing cozies….
If you’re thinking of getting your hair cut…. but not quite sure what book to take with you to the salon…. well, there are even cozies that involve hair stylist with a penchant for solving crimes.
Are you working on your family tree, but want to take a break and read a cozy or two? Well, we have genealogy cozies that will take your mind off of your family searches…
Who doesn’t enjoy a seasonal cozy mystery… October is almost here, and that marks the starting time for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, followed of course, by Valentine’s…. right through to Easter…. I’m sure that by now you are aware of the holiday theme mysteries…
Now that I am finishing up on this task, I will start blogging about some of the cozy professions that "my authors" have… I know that I blogged on the Cat Mysteries and the Dog Mysteries not too long ago… but did you know that there are also at least two birdwatcher series? Some of the main mystery characters’ professions might not surprise you, but there are a few that just might!
