LAST DAY of the Cozy Chicks Contest

Heads up, Everyone!  Today is your last chance to enter the Cozy Chicks Contest celebrating our release of the 2nd edition of our cookbook, THE COZY CHICKS KITCHEN.   It's easy to enter for a chance to win a prize from our Cozy Chicks swag site----a CC mug, tote bag, apron, or mousepad.   Just email us at  cozychicks@gmail.com  today.  That's it.  That's all you have to do.  Each of the Chicks is drawing a name from all of the ones submitted on each day as the prize recipient.  You can see here the great selection of Cozy Chicks swag you have to choose from.   :)

Meanwhile, I thought you all would enjoy learning which fictional sleuths influenced the Cozy Chicks in our youth or as adults:

Jennifer Stanley/Ellery Adams----Encyclopedia Brown was her favorite as a child until high school when Ellery Queen took top spot.

Deb Baker/Hannah Reed----loved Trixie Belden as a youngster.

Lorraine Bartlett/Lorna Barrett----swears she had no favorite childhood sleuths because she always read  biographies.

Mary Kennedy----loved Nancy Drew as a child and Miss Marple as she grew up.

Mary Jane Maffini/Victoria Abbott----preferred the Nero Wolfe mysteries from the "Golden Age of Detection."

Leann Sweeney----loved Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Carolyn Hart's Annie Darling.  Then the Perry Mason mysteries captured her.

Kate Collins----I think Kate mentioned Sherlock Holmes.

As for me----I read Nancy Drew mysteries when I was in elementary then switched for a couple of years to the Greek myths (go figure).  Then in high school, like Leann, I discovered Perry Mason and I was hooked.  I read them all.

Now, your turn.  Who were your favorite sleuths?  Tell us----AND----don't forget to send us an email sometime before today is over.
