I'm a cozy mystery reader and writer. I love whodunnit mysteries with familiar characters who make me feel at home. Most recently, I've finished the first book in a new cozy series. I'm in the process of querying (not recommended for the faint-hearted) and while I wait for responses, I'm in a bit of a conundrum. What should I do now?
For now, I've decided to try something new.
I'm going to leave the cozy world behind (very briefly!) to see what it is like on the other side--the darker side. I have a few ideas brewing. Why not venture somewhere different while I wait? To become a better writer, there are two things an author should do. The first is read. The second is write.
Wish me luck on my new literary adventure abroad!
