I've often mused about what I write on this blog, and I finally got the official word: I write adventurous cozy mysteries. Sound soft and warm? One you could wrap up in? Well, it is.
What exactly is a cozy mystery? I'm glad you asked. And how is that different than, say, a police procedure? Good question. I will give you a definition.
Police procedure: Think of all the gore, sex and drama of a show like CSI with hardened criminals and jaded investigators supported by a team of experts.
Cozy mystery: All the suspense and drama of a mystery leaving out the sex and gore.
Sleuths are often amateurs relying on instinct, intelligence and intuition rather than formal training.
But most of the cozies I know are in small towns, but I write cozy mysteries/adventure because my protagonists must go to great lengths and distances to solve the case,.
And then there's romance.
I really can't write anything that doesn't have these elements because it is what I love. But you probably already knew that about me.
So if you're looking for a good mystery, without sex, violence and gore with a bit of humor and romance, stay tuned for my first novel.
Looking for more examples of cozy mysteries, here's a Goodreads link.
