Is my sleuth too big for her mystery?
Seven hours driving through the guts of Alabama gives a writer time to think (particularly when her first Cozy is set in the land of cotton and crummy roads).
Anyhow, confidence in my novel’s crime is high. It’s entertaining, unexpected, dramatic and heartfelt.
Faith in my linguist sleuth is equally high. She’s a fantastic mess, but…
Can this story and this sleuth share center stage, without one detracting from the other?
Good question? Sure.
Any answer? Nope.
