Today would have been Agatha Christie's 120th birthday. There is an ongoing celebration of her works over at the Barnes & Noble online mystery book club, with various authors blogging throughout the month about some aspect of Agatha's life and work. I'm proud to be a part of this effort (my post about sites associated with the famous author will appear September 30). The lineup includes Kate Stine and Brian Skupin of Mystery Scene Magazine. The full list of bloggers appears here.
The Winter 2010 issue of Mystery Scene Magazine will include an interview Oline Cogdill did with me back in October, at Bouchercon. (Since I can't remember now what it is I said, this should be interesting!) The article carries the delightful title, "Birth of a Cozy Writer."
Mystery Scene Magazine is available by subscription and is available in chain and mystery stores everywhere.
In the meantime, I'm rereading the fun "Meet Miss Marple" article that appears in the current issue. A good summary of the character, and the many different ways she has been portrayed on film.
