Nanci Rathbun is a lifelong reader of mysteries – historical, contemporary, futuristic, paranormal, hard-boiled, cozy … you can find them all on her bookshelves.

How to Research a Murder – a Guest Blog by Gilian Baker

[image error]


Ever wanted to kill someone? How would you do it?  In my first cozy mystery, Blogging is Murder, the victim is poisoned with hemlock. Why hemlock when there are so many new, man-made chemicals available? I don’t know, really. I just always wanted to kill someone off with an old-fashioned plant. And when I started researching the properties of hemlock, I knew I

“The beauty of being a woman, as the French say, "of a certain age", is that I can be invisible. Young people, both men and women, look right through me, unless I make the effort to be noticed.”

“Milwaukee has more bars and more churches per capita than almost any other city in North America. I'm not sure if there's a relationship in that. Does too much prayer cause you to drink? Or vice versa?”
