Phil Hardwick told CA: "I love a good mystery. Early in my career I solved real ones. These days I'm a professional economic developer who spends his spare time writing mysteries. My 'Mississippi Mysteries' series, featuring private eye Jack Boulder, grows every year with the addition of another novella or two set in a Mississippi town. I plan to expand to other states in 2004."
