Welcome to Readers Write to Know! I asked you, my readers, what questions they would ask their favorite authors if given the chance. This week, I am pleased to introduce to you, Christian Cozy Mystery author C.L. Ragsdale. I LOVE cozy mysteries, and C.L. delivers one that includes a “helpful” ghost. Her books are quick, fun reads (her blog tagline is “Good Stories, Just Less Words”) that bring a supernatural mystery but also help share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s nice to have another author on here who also embroiders and knits — I often worry that I’m splitting my creative side!
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well I guess I should warn you this is going to be short and not very interesting. Besides writing I love to embroider (which I am good at) and knit (which I am only fairly good at). I’m not married and I have no children, although nephews and nieces, and great-nephews and nieces (yes I am that old) makes up for it. My mother lives with me and I feel very blessed for that. I do not have impressive educational degrees, writing awards or what most would consider an interesting life. In other words, I’m boring. However, I do love to write and believe it is a ministry the Lord called me to do, and I wouldn’t change any of it unless of course God has other plans.
2. Tell us about your current release.
My current release if Book Number 4 in my Christian Cozy Mystery Series called The Reboot Files entitled The Wrong Ghost. This time Reboot ghost buster Irene Waters is off to picturesque Lake Morona to investigate rumors of the ghost of a vengeful female spirit haunting its shores. Pretty standard fare for Irene and her cameraman Troy Stenson except for few odd things. First they learn that their boss, Bernie Youngman, had previously passed on covering this particular ghostly tale. Now he has not only changed his mind about covering the story but has even insisted on coming along. Then they find that Reboot has competition for the story, and to Troy’s dismay it is his former employer who is the competition! Then there is the “ghost” who is just a little bit too cooperative, and it may not even be the right ghost. Of course there is a plethora of suspects, but motivations are not so clear. Worse still, the mysterious Records Department is lurking in the shadows planning who knows what. Well I do but that’s to be expected.
