Cozying Up to Fall

Sometimes, I can't believe that I used to dread the onset of fall. Why was its arrival so worrisome? Because fall meant that winter was on its way. And winter was even worse than fall. Months of short days and freezing weather combined with the inevitable onset of cabin fever. None of which I found pleasant.

So I Decided to Write a Cozy Mystery (Here’s Why!)

Cozy mysteries are always set in a place where people know each other, the townspeople are charismatic, and the shop owners seem to be living their dreams selling coffee, flowers, and chocolates. Every once in a while, it's nice to read about a town that pays its workers a livable wage and doesn't crush employees' souls.
