Chat via Skype with USA Today bestselling cozy mystery author Duffy Brown!
Duffy Brown is the national bestselling author of the Consignment Shop Mysteries, including Iced Chiffon, Killer in Crinolines, and Pearls and Poison. She loves anything with a mystery. While other girls dreamed of dating Brad Pitt, Duffy longed to take Sherlock Holmes to the prom. She has two cats, Spooky and Dr. Watson, and works at a consignment shop when she’s not busy conjuring up whodunit stories.
Her newest book, Demise in Denim, was released in April 2015 and is set in Savannah. It’s springtime, Walker Boone is wanted for murder, and no one knows where he is...or do they?
Cozy mysteries are murder mysteries without the blood and gore of some mystery writing.
