This is a first for It’s a Mystery podcast!
Award-winning mystery author Kellye Garrett reads to us from a work-in-progress, which is a first for this show.
When the publisher of her first two mysteries shuttered their doors, Kellye pivoted and began working on this domestic thriller. You’ll hear her read from that book and then we discuss her two Detective By Day books and how they are still impacting readers, the #ownvoices movement, and how writing for the TV show Cold Case helped Kellye when it came to writing fiction.
This week’s mystery author
Kellye Garrett’s Hollywood Homicide, about a semi-famous, mega-broke black actress, won the Anthony, Agatha and Lefty for best first novel. It’s also one of BookBub’s “Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time.” The second, Hollywood Ending, was featured on the TODAY show’s Best Summer Reads of 2019 and was nominated for both Anthony and Lefty awards. She serves on Sisters in Crime’s national board and is a co-founder of Crime Writers of Color.
