In today’s episode, Christmas is going to the dogs… and a few cats!

My guest is cozy mystery author and professional cat rescuer M. R. Dimond. She writes the Black Orchids Enterprises mystery series, and the first two books take place at Christmas time. We chat about her writing process, her time as a cat rescuer, and the joy of writing Christmas books. Then in the second half of the episode, we also talk about her favorite Christmas things! You won’t believe what Christmas movie she talks about here.

I also share some dog-related cozy news and recommend some great books that feature Christmas and Dogs.

Hello! Today’s episode is pretty straightforward – we finally have the Cozy Christmas Book Club up and running, so I share all the book club news. If you’re interested in joining please head over the Cozy Christmas Book Club Page on facebook!

Then I finish reading chapter 1 of the Christmas novella The Chimes by Charles Dickens. In the story today, Trotty hears his daughters news, and deals with 3 very unpleasant people who could really use a visit from a Ghost of Christmas… but since this is actually a New Years story, we’ll have to wait and see.

Title: More Book Club News, and The Chimes, part 2 of 8
A Cozy Christmas'

Hello and welcome to the start of season 4! In today’s episode I give a few updates and share some news about our new Cozy Christmas Book Club. You can find details on my social media accounts.

The main portion of the episode today, I begin reading Charles Dickens’ novella The Chimes. It was released at Christmas time the year after A Christmas Carol was published. It tells the story of Toby Veck and a mysterious encounter he has with some goblins that haunt the church bells…

This novella will be read in parts over the next 8 episodes. Along the way I will have some guests on to chat, news to share, and lots of wonderful cozy books to talk about. I’m so excited to get this new season started – Let’s get counting down to Christmas 2023!

A Cozy Christmas'

In today’s episode, we wrap up the 2022 Christmas Season with a cozy Christmas conversation with mystery author Peggy Ehrhart. She is the author of the Knit and Nibble mysteries, and has written several Christmas books for the series. In this episode we talk about her journey to becoming a published author, which includes being a former English professor with a doctorate in Medieval Literature! Then we talk about all the delicious foods one can find in cozy Christmas mysteries, and she walks us through her writing process. Then in the second half of the interview, she takes the Cozy Christmas questionnaire and we find out all about her thoughts on the different Christmas traditions that we know and love. This is a wonderfully cozy way to end the year, and I’m looking forward to beginning season 4 and counting down to Christmas 2023!

Be sure to stick around for January and February – I’ll be reading the New Year’s set novella, “The Chimes” by Charles Dickens, and I have lots of other fun things planned!

A Cozy Christmas'

It’s almost Christmas, and today I want to give you a story and a message for Christmas. I’ve had a few listeners wondering if I could address some of my thoughts about the religious significance of Christmas. So in today’s episode I want to talk about what Christmas means to me, what my faith means to me, and how the two are connected. I also read you a very sweet and inspiring story written by Leo Tolstoy. It’s also known as “Simon the Cobbler” and it tells the story of an elderly shoe maker. One day he hears a voice – God – saying that He would come and visit him tomorrow. So that next day Simon gets up and works by his window, looking out at the people and waiting for Christ to arrive. What he sees and does in response is what makes this story a beautiful message of what God’s love looks like.

This is a bit more religious than what I usually do on my podcast, but I felt like it was a message I wanted to share, and in some ways needed to share. My hope is that this episode will encourage you to be kind, to do good, and to honor Christmas in your heart, and try to keep it all the year.

From me and my family to all of you, I hope you have a very merry Christmas!

A Cozy Christmas'

Today, we’re celebrating the 100th episode of A Cozy Christmas podcast. I have a Q&A section where I answer questions and share Christmas memories from the audience. Then singer/songwriter Rehya Stevens and I sit down and catch up on life, and we talk about our favorite Christmas albums and the memories we have of them. Rehya then gives us some great tips on how to show kindness towards others during this time of year. (some of the organizations she mentioned are posted below if you’re interested.) I’ve been really excited to get this episode out, and I can’t wait to see what the next 100 episodes will bring.

And Christmas is just 5 days away!

The worlds of Arthur Conan Doyle and Charles Dickens collide!

In today’s episode I talk to writer/director Mark Shanahan – who’s back on the show to talk more about his play A Sherlock Carol. Along for the ride is his partner in this endeavor, Drew McVety – he stars as Sherlock Holmes and is also one of the producers. After we catch up with Mark and find out all about how Drew portrays Sherlock Holmes, I subject them to another round of the Cozy Christmas Questionnaire – and it turns out these two are full of Christmas spirit, (even if one of them doesn’t like Egg Nog…). I also find out that not only are these two incredibly talented people, but they are also some of the kindest people you will ever meet. So settle in for another Cozy Christmas conversation and join us as we chat about A Sherlock Carol and Christmas shopping, music, foods, and memories – and find out why we should all aspire to be like Ebenezer Scrooge!

Hello! My guest today is cozy mystery writer Carol J. Perry. She is the author of the Haunted Haven series and the Witch City Mystery series. We have a fun conversation talking about her books. I’d especially recommend her most recent one called “High Spirits”, as it takes place at Christmas. Later on, the conversation turns to Christmas and we talk about some of her favorite memories and traditions, what Christmas is like in Florida vs New England, and during the Cozy Christmas Questionnaire, we get side tracked talking about mince meat pie. Carol is living a full and happy life, and she brings an abundance of Christmas cheer… even if she does plot murders for a living!

A Cozy Christmas'

Hello! Since I’ve been talking to a lot of mystery writers lately, I thought I should read a classic crime story to you today – “Stuffing” by Edgar Wallace. It’s basically a story of a heist gone wrong, and Wallace skillfully weaves together the stories of a poor newly married couple about to leave for Canada to start a new job, a couple of crooks, and a rich man with a safe full of money. The story is both funny and charming! A perfect read for this time of year.

If you’d like to submit a question for our Q&A during our 100th episode on December 20th, you can email them to me at cozychristmaspodcast@gmail.com.

In 2023 I will be doing a Cozy Christmas Book Club. If you’d like to participate, send me an email and I’ll sign you up. More details to come.

Hello friends, today’s episode brings much joy… Sarah Joy Kane is our guest! I catch up with her and find out about the musical she’s in, Scrooge No More, currently showing at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. If you’re able to see her in the performance, tell her I said hello! Then we talk about her life as a military wife and what we can do to help support our troops and their families. And then we get down to the really important questions – which is better Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Colored Lights or White lights? SNOW OR SUN? These questions and more are answered in the joyful way that only Sarah can bring.

Dead bodies keep turning up at the North Pole. Good thing that Mrs. Claus is on the case! That’s right, I have Liz Ireland, author of the Mrs. Claus Cozy Mystery Series. She’s here to talk about her new book “Mrs. Claus and the Evil Elves” and we have a wonderful chat about her book, Christmas, and of course Charles Dickens and a Christmas Carol. Can you guess which of us has more copies of Christmas Carol audiobooks? And just how many are too many?

There’s a lot to laugh over in this episode, but we also share some simple ways everyone can bring some Christmas cheer to those who might be in short supply. So come on in and enjoy this cozy conversation I had with Liz Ireland.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Today, we’re talking turkey…

In today’s episode I take a brief look at where the tradition of eating turkey comes from, and discover a few traditional Christmas meals from around the world.

Then I read Louisa May Alcott’s short story, “A Christmas Turkey, and How It Came”. Does this old story still have a revelant message for us today? Indeed it does. But it’s also a wonderfully sweet story to listen to while you slowly digest your Thanksgiving Dinner.

Also, our 100th episode is fast approaching! If you have a story, memory, tradition, favorite recipe or any questions for the Q&A segment on our 100th, get it to me asap at any of my social medias or email me at cozychristmaspodcast at gmail dot com!

Plus, listen for some plans I have for the coming 2023 season… enjoy!

Hello everyone – today we are talking poetry. I have the amazing North Pole Poet Laureate with me today, Amy Marschak. She was named by Santa himself to spread Christmas cheer throughout the world by her improv poetry. That’s right – improv! So in today’s episode I talk to her about life as Santa’s poet, and then she kindly demonstrates her talent and comes up with several poems for me with just a few prompts. You will be captivated by her Christmas cheer! There is a video version of this interview on my youtube channel if you’d like to see the interview.

Gracie and I then get together and see if we can’t do some improv poetry too… it turns out it was a bit harder than we thought, but we had a lot of fun!
