Why do we love mysteries so much? Why is fiction so important? And who are our favorite female detectives?

Today I’m talking all of that and more with my friend, Patricia Raybon. Patricia is an award-winning Colorado author and novelist who writes about faith and mystery, and she’s also on the (in)courage writing team with me. And, as you’ll hear in this episode, she has a lot to share with us about writing in general and mysteries in particular.

That’s right. We’re talking about mysteries this week—specifically ones solved by female detectives. It’s a fun one, friends! And, because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we also get into Netflix binges, romance novels, and nineties music. So, get ready, because we’re starting now!
