Articles, Interviews & Fun Stuff
Back in March 2020, I asked readers to send me random words, which I then used as inspiration to write a short, cozy mystery. It was another attempt to stay CONNECTED, COZY & CREATIVE with everyone. Sixty cozy readers sent me over ninety words which resulted in “Don’t Wine.”
In this short story, Jane and Ernest, a middle-aged married couple who are new empty-nesters, visit Sancerre, France to attend a wedding. Once they arrive, however, they find that their idyllic dream vacation isn’t what they’d hoped it might be. To make matters worse, they witness a murder that no one believes was a crime. Afraid that the murderer will be after them next, they must solve a mystery no one else will undertake.
