I’m Bill Mize, and I write mysteries.
That’s really the long and short of my story.
You can find a bit more about me in this first blog entry.
I published my first book in 2000. It was nominated for a major award (as they say in “A Christmas Story”) and my last back in 2006, and for various reasons – depression, anxiety, day job, fear, shame, guilt, love, marriage, sidetracks and false starts, I haven’t published a novel since then.
I’ve decided to change that.
I’ve decided that I’m going to start from scratch, and create a new series, and write the first novel in that series, and you and I are going to do it together.
This website and blog are going to be both my journal, my journey and my bully pulpit to help you write your first (or next) mystery.
I’m scared shitless, and I’m excited beyond belief in the possibilities that exist.
I’m going to be honest. I’m going to be opinionated.
I’m going to be gentle. I’m going to try and help you, and myself, get the work done.
No matter where you are now in your journey, I invite you to come with me on mine.
