Is Sailing Really Interesting To Non-Sailors? Writer's Tips & Tricks

One of the challenges I face writing a cozy mystery series about a reluctant sailor turned amateur sleuth is how to write about sailing in a way that's engaging for people who know nothing about boats.

Now that I've published three books in my series (plus a prequel), I've figured out a few tips and tricks about how to make it interesting. Want to know more? Hop on over to Elizabeth Spann Craig's blog HERE and check out my guest post.


  1. I think you do that just fine. Your character knows nothing about boating so it's a learning curve for both the character and the reader. That's brilliant.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Ellen. ♥

  2. You've done a great job, others can learn from you now.
