Mystery writers think differently. When they walk to the beach, they consider multiple ways a body or two might wash up on a beach. In this edition of the Florida Writer Podcast, host Alison Nissen chats with 2019 RPLA Mystery and Suspense Writer of the Year JC Gatlin. Discover his process for plotting and avoiding writer's block and some lessons on creating your own book tour, the 2021 edition.

Award-winning author JC Gatlin lives in Tampa, Florida and has written six mystery-suspense novels set in the Sunshine State. His novel H_NGM_N: Murder is the Word was honored by the Florida Writers Association with its coveted Royal Palm Literary Award for Best Mystery / Crime Fiction in 2019. A year before that, 21 Dares went to Number One on Amazon’s Mystery Suspense and Top Young Adult charts. The novel was also a semi-finalist in the Royal Palm Literary Awards. #FloridaWriters #Writers Life
