What’s Your Issue, Fleur? A guest post by Fleur Bradley

Whenever I introduce myself, I usually start with: I’m Fleur Bradley, and I love mysteries. I read them, I write them, and sometimes (mostly while watching true crime) I think I can solve them, too.

I write mysteries for middle-grade and YA, sometimes with a horror element as was the case with my latest book, Daybreak on Raven Island. I’m proud of being a genre writer. And I always liked to think that writing genre meant I could leave books about difficult issues to other writers. Secretly, I considered those better writers (we’ll leave the armchair psychology at the door for that one).
