Where would you find an interior decorator, her tea-leaf reading best friend, and a hot fudge sauce recipe to die for?
Today my guest, Cassie Page, shares with us her motivation and inspiration for writing the Darling Valley cozy mysteries, featuring amateur sleuth and interior designer, Olivia M. Granville (OMG).
We talk about her love of cooking (and her over 500 cookbooks!) and why she chose not to write culinary cozy mysteries, but instead created the fictional Darling Valley just outside her home of San Francisco.
I also want to mention that Vered Ehsani, who was my guest on It’s a Mystery Podcast episode 21, has a fun giveaway she wanted my listeners to know about. To celebrate the launch of her new Cozy Tea Shoppe Mysteries, she’s giving away three handmade African tea cozies. Click here to learn more and enter the giveaway.
