Cozy- a subgenre of mysteries https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cozy_my....

Wikipedia explains it well. No gratuitous violence or foul language, cozies are a gentler read. The focus is on the protagonist, who is often an unwitting amateur sleuth. It is a fun read, often focusing on a professional (such as a librarian or a chef) who solves the mystery with the help of friends and a police contact in the community. Readers enjoy solving the puzzle of 'who did it and they like following their favourite characters in a cozy series. It is a popular read among women and men, as character development is a big part of the story. Subgenres of cozies are numerous, countries, holidays, professions, etc. (less)

I did find out about my real parents, what the circumstances were, when, where (Toronto) and why. Many authors work from the premise of adoption or abandonment. It can make for a compelling story.(less)

A very tall man with a commanding presence was standing in the kitchen of The Bird House, the Pelee Island haven run by the bird observatory. He towered over me. Intimidated but curious, I introduced myself. He reciprocated. "Sean Dooley", he announced. If I had been a 'birder', I would have known immediately who he was. As we chatted, he mentioned he was on Pelee Island for one day only, he wo... Read more of this blog post »

“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

“Never, never, never give in!”
Winston S. Churchill

“Mourning is not forgetting,' he said gently, his helplessness vanishing and his voice becoming wise. 'It is an undoing. Every minute tie has to be untied and something permanent and valuable recovered and assimilated from the knot. The end is gain, of course. Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be made strong, in fact. But the process is like all other human births, painful and long and dangerous. This”
Margery Allingham, The Tiger in the Smoke
