Those who know me and those who have read my book know that there are three subjects dear to my heart: mysteries, writing, and coping with depression. They may seem like unrelated subjects, but each is really about figuring things out: who committed a crime or how or why, how do I say exactly what I mean in a way that won't possibly be misunderstood, or why do I feel the way I do and how can I change the way I'm feeling? In this blog, I intend to talk about all three subjects. I aim to make the day's subject clear in the title of each post.
