I once read a story about a fisherman's wife who thought her next door neighbor was crazy. Every day the girl dressed up like someone different—a ballerina, a farmer, a nun. As it turned out, the girl pitied the older woman because she was living her "only, only, only life."
I love imagining I'm someone else. I invariably ask people I meet what their interests are because it makes their eyes shine, and because I get to learn about something they truly love. Try it, you'll see.
Writing mysteries and crime novels allows me to "live" lots of different lives without making my neighbors nervous... although I guess I really can't be sure about that.

Donna Huston Murray’s cozy mystery series features a woman much like herself, a DIY headmaster's wife with a troubling interest in crime. Both novels in her new mystery/crime series won Honorable Mention in genre fiction from Writer’s Digest. Her eighth cozy FOR BETTER OR WORSE was a Finalist for The National Indie Excellence Award in Mystery and was shortlisted for the Chanticleer International Mystery & Mayhem Book Award. FINAL ARRANGEMENTS, set at Philadelphia’s world famous flower show, achieved #1 on the Kindle-store list for Mysteries and Female Sleuths.
At home, Donna assumes she can fix anything until proven wrong, calls trash-picking recycling, and although she should probably know better by now, adores Irish setters.
Donna and husband, Hench, live in the greater Philadelphia, PA, area.
