369: Writing Mystery as Series and Stand-Alone Books — Interview with Elly Griffiths

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Elly Griffiths.

Elly is the author of the Ruth Galloway and Brighton mystery series and the stand-alone novels The Stranger Diaries and The Postscript Murders. She is a recipient of the Edgar Award for Best Novel, the Mary Higgins Clark Award and the CWA Dagger in the Library Award. She lives in Brighton, England.

Today we’ll be discussing The Postscript Murders, which was released earlier this year. The Night Hawks from her Ruth Galloway series is also out now, and The Midnight Hour (from her Brighton mystery series) is on sale November 2nd.

 

In this episode Elly and I discuss:

  • Why so many people have been turning to mysteries during the pandemic.
  • How to get readers to take a leap of faith and what you must do in return.
  • Making sure that the right clue appears at the right time in a mystery novel.

 

Plus, her #1 tip for writers.
