Molly was at a mystery conference over the weekend and is clearly still recovering, since she forgot to mention that she just signed a three book deal with Penguin Berkeley for a 'light paranormal mystery' series! I can't wait to read those - or her new Lawn Order due out soon! Enjoy her post here! -AA
Something special was cooked up for Magna this year. The organizers got the bright idea of putting together a cookbook featuring recipes submitted by mystery writers. The resulting volume, called Suspiciously Delicious, is chock full of wonderful recipes ranging from Mma Potokwani’s Fruit Cake, submitted by Alexander McCall Smith, to Corn Borer Cornbread Muffins from Bill Fitzhugh, to Simple Salmon from Carolyn Hart, and Roast Quail submitted by M.C. Beaton. Accompanying each recipe is a recommended mystery to read while enjoying the finished product. For instance, recommended reading for A Bad Day for Sorry by Sophie Littlefield is Double Dark Chocolate Devastators, submitted by yours truly.
Copies of the cookbook sold quickly, but there were a few left at the end of the weekend. If you’re interested in a copy of your own, email the magna folks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
