September Guest Post for The Aspiring Author Blog
I read every book as if it were a mystery.
Maybe it’s because my first favorite books were all mysteries. Or maybe it’s because I’m descended from a man who obsessively read every word Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote. Or maybe it’s because I'm a naturally cynical person. Who knows… The bottom line is whether it’s Dickens or Spillane,Allende or Eco, I’m going into every story looking for clues to put the puzzle together.
And over time, I’ve come to recognize that at the core of every good story is an essential mystery.
Don’t believe me?
