I’m Agatha-nominated and national best-selling author Edith Maxwell, aka Maddie Day, and I write four mystery series, with nine published books, three to release in 2017, and many more under contract. I’m currently working on my fifteenth novel and I couldn’t be happier.
As Edith Maxwell, I write the historical Quaker Midwife Mysteries. Called to Justice releases from Midnight Ink in April, 2017. We went on an historical book launch walking tour last spring – and you can take the tour yourself on YouTube!
And Maddie Day has a signed three-book contract with Kensington Publishing for a new cozy foodie mystery series! The Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries will debut with Murder on Cape Cod. Mackenzie Almeida runs a bicycle repair and rental shop in a fictional Cape Cod village, and also hosts a weekly cozy mystery book group.
And just to keep things interesting, I have written under the name Tace Baker, as well, with the Lauren Rousseau Mysteries from Barking Rain Press.
As Edith Maxwell I also write Agatha-nominated and award-winning short crime fiction.
Welcome to my world of cozy and historical mysteries. I hope you’ll visit my group blog, where I post with five other New England cozy mystery author-friends every week day over at WickedCozyAuthors.com. We were featured in the Boston Globe this spring! My latest author newsletter is here.
