Chelsea Thomas is technically two people. We are married writing team Chelsea and Matthew Thomas. We’ve been together since 2006. Married since 2016. And we love writing these books as a couple! You didn’t start out writing mysteries. What made you dip your toes into cozies? We didn’t start out writing books at all. For the past several years we have worked as screenwriters. And we still do work as screenwriters when we're not writing cozies! Our most recent project is for Nickelodeon and it should be completed in 2019. Our friend Christy (author of the great Mom and Christy Cozy Mystery Series) introduced us to cozies a while back and we fell in love with the genre. Cozies are comforting and entertaining. Page turners that are somehow relaxing at the same time. We enjoy reading these books as much as we enjoy writing them! How did you choose to write about an apple orchard? Matt grew up down the street from a beautiful orchard in suburban New York. That orchard has apple trees, Christmas trees, a pumpkin patch, a bakeshop and even a vineyard! We love it there and we thought an orchard would be the perfect setting for a cozy mystery. You’re going through a big transition in your lives right now. How has that informed your cozies? We are definitely going through a big move! This winter we are re-locating from Los Angeles to New York. In that process we have driven through so many small towns that have inspired elements of these cozies. More than that, the main character in our books moves from a big city to a small town to be with family. We are making this move to be closer to family, too. And that has helped us connect with our locations and characters even more. Who would enjoy this mystery? People who like quick, clean, cozy mysteries will like our apple orchard cozy mystery series. These books have strong female protagonists, a mystery you can follow along with, and no violence or bad language. They're great for the beach, the pool, or to curl up with by the fire. A cozy escape for any environment!Read Apple Die for FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription and look for it under Cozy Mystery.
