When writing a Cozy Mystery, facts are important.
But equally crucial is the method in which the facts are given.
The facts, once given, can’t be muddled. They can’t be wishy-washy, squishy or in any manner wet noodle-like.
Hard, concise, clear-cut and oftentimes damning, facts can be a Cozy author’s deadliest weapon.
(Not me. Dumb as a doornail, was I… and that’s a fact.)
