They also write television and film. As screenwriters, they have worked with several studios, including Nickelodeon, SONY and CBS.

1. How long does it take you to write a full novel? AND...what's a typical writing day look like for you?

It can take 4-6 weeks to write a full novel. A typical writing day begins at 8 AM and concludes at 2 PM. I write with my husband, so typically one of us re-writes while the other writes a first draft. 

2. Beside's writing, what are you most passionate about?

I love yoga. My husband is a musician. 

3. If you could travel to any location to write a novel, where would you go and why?

I would love to write a cozy based in the Pacific Northwest. We went on our honeymoon there and loved it.

4. What's the latest show you binge watched?

Prison Break 

5. Tell us something most people don't know about you!

Chelsea Thomas is married writing team Chelsea and Matthew Thomas!

The Apple Orchard Cozy Mystery Series

I write a comforting and humorous cozy mystery series set on an apple orchard in NY. My main sleuth is a 60 something former prosecutor, and her 20 something niece is always by her side helping with the investigations!
