It’s a Mystery Podcast

Alexandra Amor-cropFor readers and lovers of the mystery genre, podcast episodes will be posted every Monday and will feature interviews with authors of mysteries including crime, detective, British detective, amateur sleuth, procedural, noir, suspense, cozy, thriller and more.

Host Alexandra Amor says, “I come from a family of voracious readers, and we are always looking for our next favorite mystery. I am also an award-winning independent author and I began to notice that many amazing books are being shared with the world but they sometimes have trouble finding an audience in the increasingly competitive book market.

I’m also passionate about creativity and living a creative life. I love hearing behind-the-scenes stories from writers and other creative people about how and why they make their art, what inspires them, and the challenges and rewards found in creativity.

Mystery Podcast LogoI’ve taken these elements of my life and married them. Think of the It’s a Mystery Podcast as a matchmaker between great books and eager readers.”
