Author Spotlight- Duffy Brown

It's time for Author Spotlight- and this week's lovely author is Duffy Brown!! Duffy is the author of The Consignment Shop Mystery Series as well as the Cycle Path Mystery series.








While others girls dreamed of dating Brad Pitt, I wanted to take Sherlock Holmes to the prom. Today I'm a National Bestselling author and conjure up who-done-it stories for Berkley Prime Crime. I has two series, the Consignment Shop mysteries set in Savannah and the Cycle Path Mysteries on Mackinac Island.







I live in Ohio, have four kids and two grandkids. I'm a widow and have two cats Spooky and Dr. Watson who rule the roost. I love to garden. Flowers are my passion. Zumba is my way of trying to get rid of those donuts I have for breakfast.


I read Nancy Drew when growing up and it changed my life. I grew up in an era like Mad Men when men pretty much did all the cool stuff. Women could be teachers, nurses, secretaries and that was about it for a career. And then there was Nancy. She was smarter than the boys, always solved the mystery and she had a really cool car. I wanted to be Nancy!


I love anything Sherlock. My license plate is Shrlok.
I am crazy about the new BBC version of Sherlock. What great stories. And I love the TV show Gilmore Girls. Totally addicted. Great humor and very smart. I love the Stephanie Plum stories because we all need to laugh more.

  11. I'm an Ohioan too. I used to have a cat named Spooky (calico with lots of black on her). I read Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, the Hardy Boys, and the Three Investigators. Later I moved on to Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes. I've read all the original Sherlock stories so now I read ones that other authors write. I have a bunch of them. I like Jeremy Brett as Sherlock and not the newer interpretations.
