  1. I would also make my lead character a Librarian but because I also like to do party favors, I would have her do that as well. I really hope I win this book. It would be a great christmas present

  2. I would have the sleuth be a retired federal agent like me. I never investigated any crimes but i could learn!


  3. I would have the sleuth be a teacher. They are always looking for new clues and new ways of looking at things to help people..

  4. A garbage collector! I’ll bet he/she would find all sorts of weird things going through other people’s trash! He/she would also have a sense of humor to do a job like that.

  5. I would have my sleuth be a genealogist. Lots of interesting clues form the past not to mention how the clues could take you to all sorts of intriguing locations.

  6. My sleuth would be a mom who stumbles into situations doing her various kid and volunteer activities. She’d have her group of friends for help – one of which is a librarian, one a nurse, and one a lawyer.

  7. My sleuth would be the gardener, because he/she could be weeding the garden behind some of the bigger bushes, and could see who goes and comes, and they could not see him/her. He could also act like he was really concentrating on his job pruning the bushes, but actually could hear what the neighbors are saying,without them knowing that he was listening, ha!

  8. My sleuth would be a photographer because that’s one of my hobbies. And sometimes you see things in pictures that you didn’t see when you took them.

  9. I would also have the main character be a teacher. She could solve the crimes in the summer because teachers have the whole summer off, right? As a retired teacher, I would love to have a character who could write an exciting essay on what I did on my summer vacation.
