I'm glad this group is here! I used to frequent a mail list with lots of info from experts, but 99% of it is US centered so very often not so useful when trying to show how things happen in the UK (or somewhere else). I watched a Jericho Writers video recently about police procedures in the UK and it is super informative.

Hi! I've just joined this group. I'm working on my first mystery novel. Quite a challenge keeping all the plates spinning!

Hi. 

I'm just in the initial planning stages of my next book & thinking about my protagonist's name. I usually write in the 3rd person & from a single viewpoint, & in the past, I've always referred to my protagonist (male) by his first name. I admit to not reading a lot of crime, myself, but I think this is unusual. Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter? Does using the surname make the character/book seem more edgy?

My main influence as a crime writer was Dick Francis but his books were always in 1st person, so I didn't get the habit from him... 

Just interested 😊

Happy Sunday to you all,  I would love to know how you plot. I’ve read various suggestions, from dividing it into 3 sections, or 5, then subsections. Right now, I have a cork board with 5 rows of sticky notes on it. That’s a step up in organising my ideas from my previous ´ write and see how it goes’ method. Am I inspiring you? Thought not. Seriously, I’d love to know!

Hi Everyone, 

I'm new to this mystery group. Looking for authors with like interests. I am currently revising a cozy mystery set in the Midwest U.S. A. and with a curious female protagonist.

Hoping some members write and read cozy. 

Do any members enjoy cozy mysteries, which, as you know, often concern cats, gardens, food, and gently amusing predicaments (e.g., M.C. Beaton's Hamish McBeth or A. McCall Smith's Varg or Precious Ramotswe -type series)?

Hi, just discovered this. Looking forward to getting involved. I have three, as yet unpublished, complete novels. I have just started sending out queries for one of these. I also have a couple of ideas for my next. I may share some opening pages to see what others think.

Saying hi as a new joiner to the group … in case it’s of any interest in police/ crime thrillers… I work in the medical/ science fields and hapoy to be consulted in case I may be of help re medical, surgical, acute hospital procedures in the U.K. Opinions are of course my own. My interest in joining is to help with plot and character development for a crime thriller. Books I love are spy thrillers. Lovely weekend all. Steve

Writing a crime thriller that spans US and Canada.  Does anyone know the rankings of officers in police services in Canada? Not finding great details on their websites.
