I recently discovered the delightful writing of Aaron Paul Lazar. He writes cozy mysteries, and also some romance. If you are looking for a satisfying story line, interesting characters, and plots with lots of complexity that don't take weeks to read, these are perfect.
Aaron lives in Upstate New York, original home territory for me, and many of his stories are placed in familiar landscapes. He began writing as a way to recover from a series of personal losses, and never stopped. His author blog is at aaronlazar.blogspot.com, and his official web site is lazarbooks.com
He and I became acquainted through a "blog party," and it seems as if we've known each other forever. We have many things in common.
Today, I am adding Cathy MacKenzie. Cathy enjoys writing poems, short stories and essays, some of which have won contests. Along with more short stories and essays (and the occasional poetry, when she is properly inspired), she hopes to complete the three novels she has started, but perhaps they will become novellas instead.
Cathy also paints, pastels being her favourite medium and her grandchildren her favourite subjects. Cathy lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with her husband, and they winter in Ajijic, Mexico, where several of her works have appeared in local publications.

Farah has a story published in the Elements of Dimension anthology from Twin Trinity Media. Stories of hers will also appear in the upcoming Expressions of Grace anthology, also from Twin Trinity.
Miro the Dragon is a character of author Theresa Berg. Theresa is a bilingual writer, born in Germany but her heart is in the United Staes. Miro is her first children’s book character. She says Miro has become a living being with heart and soul who chooses to stay at her side. ‘Whenever I write a new story about Miro, it is as if he sits on my shoulder and tells me what happened; I only need to write it down,’ she says about her unusual relationship with the little red dragon.
Today, I am adding a new blog of author Lucinda Gunnin.
Cindy says of her blog, "This blog will talk about whatever interests me at the moment, which can be flighty or serious, fun or silly. If you know me, then you know I'm something of a political junkie, so politics and random thoughts may also show up here. "
She has written a number of short stories, published by Twin Trinity Books, and Circle 8 Writers. You can read reviews of some of her stories at Shark's Short Story Reviews.
The primary purpose of this blog is to provide the feed to other related blogs. Included blogs are personal blogs of authors, focused on their own writing. From time to time an author will be interviewed and featured in a post below the feed.
