Want To Write A Mystery? A New Book, Which I Contributed To, Tells How

I’m proud to be among the contributors to “Now Write! Mysteries,” a new book filled with advice and exercises to help you create a whodunit, a hard-boiled crime novel, a thriller, a police procedural, or anything else under the broad umbrella of crime fiction.

My contribution is an essay on how to create a vivid setting for your story. Other contributors include Louise Penny, Gar Anthony Haywood, Peter James, Simon Brett, Rebecca Cantrell, Reed Farrel Coleman, John Lutz, Meg Gardiner, and many more. The book was edited by Sherry Ellis and Louise Lamson and published by Penguin. It’s available here now.

  1. Do I ever need this book! Started working on a novel, set in England. A mystery with an Air Force intelligence theme, set on an MI5 facility in Bedfordshire. It’s my first stab ( Colonel Hyde, in the kitchen, with a knife ) at fiction. I haven’t a CLUE! Will check this out, especially your essay.
