Welcome back, Fay Sampson, with some thoughts on a topic that is never far from a writer's mind— to what extent should we let the internet invade our lives? And how can we possibly find time to write if we do all the social media we are told we should do?

Agatha Christie and all the Golden Age English mystery writers are wonderful. But what do you do after you've read all the books and seen all the television adaptations 11 zillion times?

That's why I've invited my friend Julianna Deering to be my guest today to tell us about Rules of Murder, her new Drew Farthing Mystery And to discuss why she was drawn to writing in this genre.
