Publisher’s Weekly has an interesting column about cozy mysteries this week, and I’m happy to say my name was among the cozy writers mentioned. As the article discusses, a lot of us cozy writers are less than delighted to have our work described by a word that immediately brings to mind stories written by little old ladies with knitting needles stuck in their buns. Hair buns, that is. Maybe we should have a contest to give a new name to mysteries in which amateur sleuths help solve crimes. Anybody have a suggestion?
