Meet Author Colleen Cross

Colleen's Office

1. Tell me about your writing process. Are you an outliner, a "pantser", or a hybrid of both?   I am mostly an outliner, though I do tend to stray from my outline partway through the story. My characters take over, so I never really know what the ending will be like till I write it. I think that makes me a failed outliner, rather than a strict pantser.

2. What's your writing schedule like? I write for 3 hours in the morning, then take my dog Jaeger out for a walk or run for 2 hours. Then I write another 3 hours before dinner, and usually another 2-3 hours after dinner.  I write 7 days a week, though I'm trying to take more time off on the weekends.  During my breaks, I also "power weed" my garden or do some yoga.
3. Do you have word count goals or chapter goals for your writing sessions?  I try to write at least a chapter a day, ideally two. That's usually about 2,500 …

Meet Cozy Mystery Author Frankie Bow

1. Tell me about your writing process. Are you an outliner, a "pantser", or a hybrid of both?
Some details might change between the outline and the finished product, but I'm basically a plotter. It would be very hard for me to write a mystery without some planning. 
2. What's your writing schedule like?
My ideal schedule is that I wake up and have an uninterrupted hour to work while my brain is fresh. My actual schedule is me grabbing bits of time where I can. 
3. Do you have word count goals or chapter goals for your writing sessions?
I try for a thousand words a day. 
4. Where do you do the majority of your writing? 
Hawaii is warm year-round, so when it's not raining I can take my laptop to a coffee shop and sit at an outdoor table.  
5. Do you have any writing rituals?
I like to have a cup of a legal psychoactive substance nearby when I write: coffee in the morning, wine…

The Wrong Gift – A Mercy Mares Cozy Mystery Short By Ava Mallory

The jarring noise at 3 A.M. should have been my first clue that the holiday would not go as planned. I could have ignored it. I would have. But Barney, my part-time guard dog, full-time housemate, wouldn’t hear of it. “What is that noise?” I tried to sit up but the new mermaid blanket my daughter had given me as an early Christmas gift barred me from moving anything other than my toes if I angled them just so. Barney’s loud barking wasn’t helping. I flailed my lower half to loosen the death grip the blanket had on my legs, but between the barking, my shatter…
