Traditional Mysteries: The Christie Legacy

Rosemary McCracken, author and novel writing teacher at George Brown College, will be taking us through the history of "traditional" mysteries (aka cozies) and the deep debt today's mystery authors owe to Agatha Christie. Christie’s books follow 22 elements of traditional novel structure. Do you know what they are? As a reader, do you (intentionally/unintentionally) choose books based on some of these elements? As a writer, do you consider each of these when deciding what type of story to write? Come hear a lively discussion of the history of the mystery.

McCracken's short stories have appeared in many mystery anthologies, including The Whole She-Bang and the upcoming Malice Domestic's Mystery Most Edible. Safe Harbor, the first in the Pat Tierney mystery series, was shortlisted for Britain’s Debut Dagger award in 2010. Its sequel, Black Water, was released in 2013, followed by Raven Lake in 2016.
