But prolific writer Phyllis A. Whitney stands out for a couple of reasons. My mom found a reprint and gave it to me for Christmas a couple of years ago. Phyllis A. That letter, among other things, inspired Sara Paratesky and a group of women to start Sisters in Crime. Jessie Crockett wears a lot of hats, both literally and literarily. She loves the beach, fountain pens, Mini Coopers and throwing parties. She lives in northern New England where she obsessively knits wool socks and enthusiastically speaks Portuguese with a shocking disregard for the rules of grammar.
View all posts by Jessie Crockett. To me The Daughter of Time is one of the best mysteries ever written, and it barely qualifies as fiction. Like Like. Agree with you about Tey- very good writing, very original — but ahem Dorothy L. Sayers wrote Murder Must Advertise. I loved Roderick Allyn, so put me in the Ngaio Marsh fan club. I also loved Josephine Tey.

Brat Farrar remains one of my favorite mysteries. I have to go with Clair Blank, who wrote the Beverly Gray mystery series for girls from the s through the s. And, of, course, Beverly was a newspaper reporter, novelist, and playwright, so not a bad role model for an aspiring writer. I had never heard of Clair Blank! Thanks for mentioning her!

Beverly does sound like a great role model for young women with literary aspirations! My go-to answer is always Dorothy Sayers. I read the whole Lord Peter series when I was in college, and re-read them again and again.
But I also read Ngaio Marsh how did she get forgotten? Christie I find rather dry, but I respect her craft. And I still have them all, except the Nancy Drews which my mother tossed one year when we moved. I never forgave her. Dorothy L. Sayers is one of my favorites too. I introduced one of my sons to her last month when he needed something wonderful but not exhausting. I am so sorry to hear about your Nancy Drew collection! Rinehart as well.
Nancy Drew is one of my all-time favorite characters. Let me correct myself. I was a huge fan of Trixie Belden! I actually enjoyed her much more than I did Nancy Drew. Thanks for mentioning her creator! I wish I were somewhere I could take your course! Have you ever considered offering one for mystery writers and or enthusiasts online at one of the many teaching platforms? I should look into that! Add me to the list of those who wish we were neighbors so I could take your class.
Alas, Sacramento is a bit far to commute. Thanks, Lee! Wish we were closer too. Count me in the Christie fandom. Our Sisters in Crime chapter adopted her as our namesake. Like Liked by 1 person. I got hooked and read the whole series. I loved those books! I seem to remember Luis ordering a small steak at restaurants with frequency!
However, I also want to give a shout out to Dorothy Gilman, creator of Mrs. These cozy spy novels are a pure delight. I may have stolen Carstairs from these books. Thanks for mentioning Dorothy Gilman, Mark! I was delighted to discover that Barbara Rosenblat, who narrates my Beryl and Edwina books, also narrated several Mr. Reading crease.
