Traditional & Cozy

Traditionally, a cozy was not just a lighter mystery without blood, gore, or sex with an amateur sleuth. In traditional cozies the rules of fair play are observed. That is, the reader is given all the clues needed to solve a mystery before the end of the book. Readers today are more likely looking for a nice, entertaining, clean story rather than an intellectual exercise, so the rules of "fair play" are considerably relaxed. Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Jesica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote are examples are cozy sleuths.

I have always been fascinated with the concept of magic. Fairy tales and science fiction have always filled my bookshelves, and I have favored stories that emphasize characters that have ordinary lives, but have extra-ordinary abilities. As a child, I would read and re-read these tales, convinced that there was something more, something hidden... read this article
