GET A MYSTERYCLUE is designed to be a weekly, fun column where Shannon Muir takes an idea that comes to mind and just runs with it, to see what she learns along the way. This week plays with “What Does It Take to Write a Mystery?”

If you want to see what answers I found, check out my author Instagram to see what I uncovered at the California Crime Writers Conference 2019, co-presented by Sisters in Crime Los Angeles and the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America.

Watch for additional thoughts next Sunday.

See you next week!
