Lynn Cahoon, award-winning NYT and USA Today best-selling author, pens several cozy mystery series. The Tourist Trap series is set in central coastal California includes nine, soon to be ten, novels with six holiday novellas. She also pens the Cat Latimer series (set in Colorado) available in mass market paperback. The Farm to Fork mystery series is set in her home state of Idaho. No matter where the mystery is set, readers can expect a fun ride. She lives in a small town like the ones she loves to write about with her husband and three fur babies.

For me, the hardest part was making sure the towns were distinct. South Cove - the Tourist Trap town, is all about the businesses. And a lot of people live in apartments in their buildings. Tea Cups and Carnage, the newest book opens a new business on Main Street.

In my new series, The Cat Latimer mysteries, it's all about the neighborhoods. Large, old houses, a small college campus, and a town that survives because of it. Not to mention the mountains surrounding the area and the winter fun opportunities.

I write small town stories, but all small towns aren't the same. (less)

Nope. Not paranormal at all. South Cove is a fictional town set on the central California coast in contemporary times.

Now, my Council series is paranormal, so avoid that one, but it's the only set of books that fall into the woo-woo lane. :) (less)

Writing Letters to Santa

When did you stop writing Christmas letters to Santa? Eight? Twelve? Fifteen? Or do you still write the Jolly Old Elf a letter every year? I'm writing him a letter this year. Not because I need a new toy or a new kitchen appliance, but instead, I need to put my wants and dreams out into the universe. And there's no one better with dreams than St. Nick. Dear Santa, This year I'm hoping that a susta Read more of this blog post »

“If you hold anger in your heart, it just turns to evil. You have to be able to see the good in people, even those people in whom you think there isn’t even a speck of good left.”
Lynn Cahoon, Killer Run

“I think any reading is good reading, even if it's commercial fiction. A good story well told is worth the time”
Lynn Cahoon, If the Shoe Kills

“As much as I loved my computer, I wondered if I would ever know the joy of getting a letter from someone I loved, being able to pour over its contents time and time again, to feel the paper that he touched, and to know he took the time to share his day.”
Lynn Cahoon, Guidebook to Murder

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Marilyn Monroe

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”
Mark Twain

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.”
T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
