What do you like about writing in the mystery genre?

I love to read stories where I have to think about the plot, how it is unfolding and why. The deeper and more complex the mystery – the more I enjoy trying to unravel the story. I like to write stories with mystery and suspense with some thrilling scenes.

What sub-genre of mystery does your book fit?

Professional sleuth/crime

Where is your book set?

The book set in Hampshire, in the fictional University of South England.

  1. Hi Gordon..nice to meet you…I agree..the joy of writing a mystery (my genre is Histfic) is seeing it unfold. Do you actually know what is going to happen next? I rarely do…that’s part of the journey….


    • Hi Carol, thanks for your post. I like to know where I’m going so the end of ‘Everything to Lose’ foreshadows the next book ‘The Black Fox’.

      For me, when I write, I need to have the beginning and the end finalised so I know where the story is coming from and where it is going. Then I can enjoy creating mayhem in the middle.

  3. So sorry I’m always running a day behind with retweets Rosie. The only way I can be notified of your posts is to have them as a Daily rather than instant notification. Daily of course means I don’t get them until the next day.
