Hi! I'm Bill Alive, and I love writing comedies, mysteries, science fiction, fantasies ... and more ... 

I'm super excited to be launching a new comedy mystery series starring an "empath" detective who can feel people's emotions. You'd think that would make catching killers easy, but ... it's complicated. I've had so much fun writing these...I love mystery on its own, but mystery + comedy = pretty much perfect.

Some authors I love:

- P. G. Wodehouse (the Wooster and Jeeves guy ... so good ...)

- Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Okay, Brothers Karamazov isn't exactly a cozy, but it is a murder mystery. Also impossibly awesome.)

- Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

- Arthur Conan Doyle (that would be Holmes)

- G. K. Chesterton (the Father Brown stories ... pretty much the anti-Holmes, in so many great ways...)

- M. C. Beaton (Hamish Macbeth, Agatha Raisin)

- David Baldacci (that dude can pace like nobody's business)

- Deb Baker (Gertie Johnson in Murder Passes the Buck is hilarious, if you like funny mysteries you have to check out this series)

- Gillian Flynn (Sure, Gone Girl, but I love the narrator voice in Dark Places even more. Although the story is, well, dark...)

... okay, I'd better stop for now, this could go on for awhile.

I'm new to Wattpad, so if you love any of those authors, can you tell me what I should read first here? There's like a gazillion books.

I love hanging out with my fellow reader/writers, so please comment away, I can't wait to talk. :)
