Challenge Complete: A-Z Mystery Authors





Every year I'm excited to get an email from Michelle saying that her A-Z Mystery Author challenge sign-up is ready to go. I love trying to fill out the alphabet with mystery authors.

My declared commitment for 2014 was for the letters A-M. But I'm an over-achiever, so I go for the entire alphabet (with a slight cheat on "X"). As you can see, I completed my commitment last month and I have now finished off the rest of the letters.

Here's my list (normally, I fill it in ahead of time--this year I'm going to fill them in as they come:
A: Exit Actors, Dying by Margot Arnold (2/4/14)
B: Cursed in the Act by Raymond Buckland (2/16/14)
C: Shelf Life by Douglas Clark (2/6/14)
D: The Skeleton in the Clock by Carter Dickson (1/8/14)
E: No. 9 Belmont Square by Margaret Erskine (6/21/14)
F: By the Watchman's Clock by Leslie Ford (5/23/14)
G: Vertigo 42 by Martha Grimes (9/4/14)
H: The Xiblaba Murders by Lyn Hamilton (1/18/14)
