M is for Mystery

The song by the Beatles, “Magical Mystery Tour” are you ready to go on one?

I know, another double letter score. But I won’t claim that one due to the fact that it is not in the title of the blog entry today.

I loved to read the Nancy Drew detective series growing up. I could relate to her and was interested in the cases that she had to solve. I remember going to Toys R Us with my Dad and picking out a book about once a month. After getting a couple of them, it soon turned into collecting the entire series. I even added them to my list for Santa! I have them safe in storage to eventually put on shelves in my house. I think I’m currently missing seven of them. It’s a goal of mine to find the rest of them and make the series complete.

There are other classic mystery writers like Agatha Christie, Alfred Hitchcock and Sir Conan Doyle who wrote about the character Sherlock Holmes. There are also notable modern day ones like Sue Grafton with her alphabet murder mystery series. Kind of like the A to Z blogging project! I’m also a big fan of William Kent Krueger and the Cork O’Connor series of books with their settings in Northern Minnesota.

I enjoy reading from many genres, but if I had to pick three, I really enjoy reading mysteries, fiction and memoirs.

“Other types of Mysteries”

How about the Mystery Machine from the Scooby Doo cartoon series? We actually saw the vehicle while we’re on vacation for the kids spring break in March.


How many of you have played the board game Clue? Remember Professor Plum, with the Candlestick in the Library?

Even life is a mystery. I’ve heard it said many times. Not understanding the reasons why things happen can make us believe that they are a mystery. Sometimes clues are hidden with invisible ink or a in a code that needs to be decoded. But, if you find the right clues and put them in the right order, you just may be able to solve the Mystery!

Plans the jet set life for others as an aircraft scheduler by day and coordinates a family life for my fiancée, two kids and a dog by night. Writing is a passion that I can't let go of. I struggle to make time to write, but I keep plugging away at it. I have lived in Minnesota all of my life and continue to love the four seasons and ten thousand lakes the state is known for. Some of my favorite places to write and create are by many of those lakes. Be sure to look for my first published book, The Hard Way, on Amazon.com.
