Mystery - Cozy

Start this Cozy Mystery Series for 99c



I write contemporary sweet romances and cozy mysteries. I live in a small town in Washington State, near Seattle. I love to write about small coastal towns, although those that I write about are figments of my imagination. 

I used to be a tax accountant, but realized that writing romantic stories about people falling in love or making my amateur sleuths discover secrets about their suspects was way more fun than depreciating assets. 

There's never a dull moment in my household, with a tech geek husband, two small boys that keep me on my toes, two cranky cats, and a mischievous house rabbit. Tidbits of my everyday life have a tendency to find their way into my fiction, so watch out! :)

New York Cozy Mystery - Meet the Next Miss Marple!

Gallagher Gray is an American writer who based her Hubbert & Lil series on her discovery of New York City in the 1980's and 90's, particularly her admiration for New Yorkers who did not shrink from who they were and who lived life full speed ahead. Both Auntie Lil and T.S. Hubbert are based on real individuals who influenced her life and taught her that age is a state of mind and has nothing to do with the number of years you have trod the earth.

Each book in the Hubbert & Lil series features a distinct area of New York City. "Partners in Crime" takes place on Wall Street, in a buttoned-down private bank determined to hide secrets almost as old as its wealthy clients. "A Cast of Killers" examines the grit-meets-glitz world of Hell's Kitchen, which rims the Broadway area and is home to aging actresses and Irish mobsters alike. The garment district is the setting for "Death of a Dream Maker" while the Lincoln Center area, along with the world of ballet, forms the backdrop for "A Motive for Murder." 

A reviewer once said of Gallagher Gray, "the author has a fond eye for the eccentric." This love for the uniqueness of human beings, in all of their flawed glory, along with a knack for depicting the basic absurdity of life, runs throughout all of the Hubbert & Lil books -- creating a series that offers keen insights into human nature, gentle humor, and more than its share of uplifting moments.
