I write cozy mystery stories set in small towns in my home state of Indiana. A Literal Mess, book one in the Allie Cobb Mysteries series, is my first cozy mystery.

I live in Indianapolis with my wife, two sons, and a kitty cat. I dream of one day retiring to a place where the water is warm and the beaches are soft. I'm a big fan of motor sports, so when I'm not writing, you'll likely find me following the latest IndyCar and F1 developments.

I am a member of Sisters in Crime, as well as my local SinC chapter, Speed City Sisters in Crime.

Finding out what happens along with my characters as the story develops can't be beat(less)

J.C. Kenney and 2 other people liked Bruce Coffin's review of My Darkest Prayer:
My Darkest Prayer by S.A.  Cosby
"S.A. Cosby’s “My Darkest Prayer” is a masterfully written crime novel, blurring the line between good and bad. From the opening scene to the thrilling climax, Cosby grabs the reader by the throat and doesn’t let go. Highly recommend."
