This was supposed to be posted on July 29. Not sure what happened, but here it is.
I was straightening up my bookshelf in my bedroom last week when I began to look at the variety of book genres on my shelves. I would’ve have bet that there were more mystery authors in my collection...but it turned out there were not. I guess that’s a good thing that I don’t only read one genre, especially when it comes to writing. Anyway, I decided to look up the top mystery writers to see which ones I’ve checked off and which ones I haven’t read yet. There were the usual suspects like Arthur Conan Doyle (3 cheers for Sherlock Holmes!) and Agatha Christie. However, there were quite a few on that list that I’ve never read such as P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, and Dorothy L. Sayers. My usual mystery bubble includes John Grisham, Mary H. Clark with a few classics thrown into the mix. However, as I looked over the list of new authors, I decided to take a leap and try some of the authors on this list. Right now, I'm in the middle of a Sherlock Holmes novel, but I'm thinking of trying J.T. Ellison next. It's not easy, at least for me, to find a new author so here goes nothing. Who knows it might be a detective's dream.
Until next time...
