One of the things that bothered in Death by Committee, however, was the repetition of events. Something would happen with Abby and the town's sheriff Gage would question her about it. Instead of re-mentioning it briefly or saying something like "Abby relayed the events as they happened", she would repeat everything exactly. Personally, I felt it this was redundant and just added pages and word count.
Q: Was entering the cozy mystery genre a major change from the romances and paranormal romances you write? Can you tell us about the ups and downs you faced when changing genres (or when writing a new genre)?
