    Mystery Detective Fiction

    Discussion in 'By the Genre' started by David B, Oct 26, 2021.

    Hello,
    Any detective fiction writers here?
    Looking for someone I can ask questions and/or seek advice and opinions.

    Hey, David. I'm currently writing a murder mystery/courtroom drama. It's my first project in the genre as well as my first project which will likely turn into a full-length novel. I'm not overly experienced in the subject, but as we are both working in the same genre, I'd be glad to help out in any way I may be able to :)

    I'm also working on a private detective idea. Happy to brainstorm :)

    What I write is closer to thrillers than a true detective fiction, but there's usually a mystery to solve, red herrings and an investigative process in most of my books.

    Maybe we should have a Discord or group chat for the mystery and detective writers to get together?

    My brother is a PI. The stories he tells are of long and boring days watching or waiting for something to happen. Not much of any interest has happened in the last twenty or so years that I can recall. All the coolest stories I have heard with those with first and hand experience come from people doing repo work. The tv shows have really overdone the excitement of the field of PI work.

    But if you want to fact check anything I would be glad to pass on any questions to him.
