Joan Havelange talks about her mystery novels and upcoming releases

  Welcome back to Canadian mystery author Joan Havelange!  Joan Havelange is a Canadian author of three cozy mysteries and lives in a beautiful little town in the prairies, surrounded by hills, valleys, and many lakes. I’m an avid traveller. Before this pandemic broke out, I was able to travel to over 45 countries. This has helped my writing as I take my protagonists to places I have visited. I follow that old adage, write what you know. I directed little theatre for 15 years. And I find writing is a lot like directing. The difference is my characters show up on time and always know their lines. Although sometimes, they do go off in a direction that surprises me. I began writing romances, but I soon realized I was not the romantic type; murder is my line. My change of genre was the right choice, as my first whodunnit mystery, ‘Wayward Shot,’ was published in 2019.

Round Robin Blog Fest August 21 - Favorite Words

Image
  I'm back with another fun Round Robin Blog Fest! This month's question is: Do you have any character habits or favorite words that always crop up in your writing? Since I've been writing a non-fiction writing book lately, my thoughts went a totally different way to words and habits I tend to overuse. I had to laugh when a friend read one of my earlier books and commented how there was a lot of nostril flaring.  Nostril flaring  and  eye rolling  are two of my biggest, most overused reactions for characters. Apparently, I must do a lot of both in real life. Sighing  is another reaction I tend to overuse. In one of my books I was doing a first edit on, I gave up counting the number of sighs. I should have done a search when I plugged my edits into the computer. I think there would have been at least three per page. I’ve also had characters  groan  several times on a page. Some of the time I plug them into a rough draft with the intention of going back and replacing them wit
