Posted by / in The Writing Life / 2 comments

Writing Diagnosis Murder & How to Plot a Mystery

Posted by / in Diagnosis Murder, Mystery Writing, The Writing Process / 5 comments

The difficulty, the sheer, agonizing torture, of writing DIAGNOSIS MURDER is telling a good story while, at the same time, constructing a challenging puzzle. To me, the story is more important than the puzzle — the book should be driven by character conflict, not my need to reveal clues. The revelations should come naturally out of character, because people read books to see interesting people in interesting situations…not to solve puzzles. A mystery, without the character and story, isn’t very entertaining.
