The Strange Case of the Mystery Author
I loved these stories growing up. In middle school, I worked in the library (geek alert) and got to check out the series books as soon as they arrived and I typed up a new card for the card catalog. (Yes, I am showing my age.)
I was amazed at the diversity of mysteries in this little box. Yes, they had Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys, but they also had authors I hadn't read. I'm tempted to return and buy up the box, but I'm on deadline and I know, I'd be sitting and reading rather than writing my own mystery.
What were your favorite stories growing up? Where you a mystery lover even then?
