Catriona McPherson on The Cozy Corner with Alexia Gordon

Summary

Author Catriona McPherson returns to the Corner to chat about Scot Mist, her newest Last Ditch/Lexie Campbell mystery. Tune in to learn the difference between a locked room and a closed circle, who Catriona credits for setting her straight on the difference (hint: it’s Gigi Pandian), and why a lockdown lends itself to the latter. Hear what Kellye Garrett thinks of Catriona’s uber-germ-conscious character. Find out how the Last Ditch mysteries got their titles. And more!* Listen to the Cozy Corner with Alexia Gordon wherever you listen to podcasts.

(*So much more, in fact, I couldn’t fit it all in this episode. Catriona and I tend to forget we’re recording when we chat. Our conversation was almost 2 hours long. I hated to cut out so much great material. If you want to hear the full-length version of this podcast episode—of course you do—become one of my patrons on Patreon. I’ll post the whole chat there as a patron-exclusive.  Sign up here: https://www.patreon.com/AuthorAlexiaGordonand thank you for your support.)

Find Catriona at http://catrionamcpherson.com/

Cocktail hour listening idea: Enjoy my chat with Catriona with a Scotch Mist. Pour 2 ounces of Scotch whisky into a tall glass over crushed ice and add a lemon twist.
