Cast in Cliché

stockvault-police-officer210864I’m battling a Cozy cliché.

When amateur detectives go around solving murders the local constabulary is, by necessity, painted in a less than favorable light.

Either they are dunderheads, or they are so overworked that nothing less than a body of a porn star left on the mayor’s front stoop would get their undivided attention.


Even though the cops in my Cozy play a miniscule role, they deserve more than being cast in a cliché.

Bottom line: Honor the bit players, and you honor the legitimacy of your story.

Until tomorrow…
