They say, write what you know. So, I did. My first mystery featured a woman in her middle years, divorce decree in one hand, new real estate license in the other, who returns to her home town to start life over. I knew about divorce and starting over. I even knew a little about real estate. There the similarity ended. For one thing, I have never found a dead body while trying to show a house. And, Ellen only has one child. If I gave her five, I knew she’d never have time to solve any murders, and I had several in mind.
KathleenDelaney enjoys writing characters over thirty. Her protagonist, Ellen McKenzie, is a woman in her forties but possibly the most memorable and certainly the most eclectic character in her books is Ellen’s Aunt Mary McGill, a woman of strong character who doesn’t let a little thing like being past seventy bother her at all. She lives in Georgia with her dog and cat and is close enough to two of her grandchildren to be a functioning part of their lives.
