D S Nelson, Writer of Murder, Mystery and Intrigue
My introduction to murder came from Agatha Christie. Her inquisitive Miss Marple, of St Mary Mead, and very Belgian Poirot, with his ‘little grey cells’, captured my imagination from a young age.
With a passion for the crime genre, my writing includes cosy crime novelettes and short stories. I am currently working on the Blake Hetherington mystery series, the first of which, ‘Hats Off To Murder’ is now available on Kindle.
My influences include Agatha Christie, Josephine Tey, Arthur Conan Doyle, Terry Pratchett and Peter Robinson.
I started a blog to share experiences and ideas. I have been blogging since 2008. Over the years my blog has evolved and now ’Hat Paint, Ladders and Wonky Pooh’, focusses on my love of the crime genre and my writing, in particular ‘The Blake Hetherington Mysteries’.
What’s in the name? Well, hat paint, ladders and Wonky Pooh are three of the murder weapons used in Murder is Easy by Agatha Chrisite. One of my favourite Agatha Christie novels, (there are a few).
On this blog you will find previous writing challenges like Alphabet Soup Challenge , Friday Fifty , and links to my collaborative writing project ’The Alternative Life of Tallulah Devine‘, as well as regular posts, ‘The Writing Week’, ‘Where Inspiration Lies’ and ’That Just Leaves Friday’.
