When I discovered Nancy Drew at an early age, I not only fell in love with reading mysteries, but also became addicted to watching them on TV. Some early favorites were 77 Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, Honey West, and The Avengers.
Yes, I am really dating myself here. But I picked up some excellent karate moves from Emma Peel!
In writing my newest mystery, BIRTHDAYS ARE MURDER, there’s a moment when Sierra Sullivan, my protagonist, is about to be interviewed by the police. She tries to buck up her flagging spirits by pretending she’s playing the role of her favorite on-screen kick-ass detective.
When I tried to type the name into my manuscript, I realized I had so many favorites that I simply could not choose.
Since I love hearing from mystery readers, I decided it would be fun to find out who your favorite female TV/movie detectives are.
Everyone who leaves a comment by January 10th will be entered in a giveaway to receive a signed edition of BIRTHDAYS ARE MURDER and an acknowledgement in the book.
Thanks so much for the help!
