Today I had the pleasure of sitting down with Elizabeth Lynn Casey author of the Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries and her latest mystery is Wedding Duress if you haven't picked up on these books you really are missing out!
2) What other series do you write?
In addition to the Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries (which I write under my pen name, Elizabeth Lynn Casey), I also write the Amish Mysteries (under my own name, Laura Bradford). A
third cozy series (also under Laura Bradford) will debut in June 2016.
3) Who is your favorite character to write about?
That's a tough question. With the Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries, I really enjoy writing Tori, Rose, Margaret Louise, and Leona. They're all so different, yet fun. With my Amish Mysteries, I love writing Jakob Fisher. His background as a former Amish turned police detective provides so many layers to work with.
4) Can you tell us what brought you to writing mysteries?
I'd always assumed I'd write children's fiction, but when I really thought about it, I knew the pleasure I got from reading mysteries. So I gave it a shot.
5) Who influences your writing?
Really good authors (Mary Higgins Clark, Linda Castillo, Harlan Coben, to name a few).
6) What type of books do you like to read?
I tend to lean more towards women's fiction when I read.
7)What do you do when you're not writing?
I love to bake, and spend time with my family. Oh, and travel. I love to travel.
8) If you could take three things to a deserted island what would they be?
I would take a notebook/pen, a huge stack of photographs, and a way to communicate with my family (assuming they couldn't be with me).
Thank you again Elizabeth for taking time to visit my blog and share your wonderful interview with our followers! I can't wait to read Wedding Duress!
