Who Wrote It Wednesdays

Welcome to our final Who Wrote It Wednesdays challenge! Each Wednesday during January, we will be sharing the first lines from five books by a mystery author. Use your sleuth skills and guess the author that is being highlighted in each Who Wrote It Wednesdays post by filling out the form included in this post! Each week’s mystery author will be revealed in the following Favorite Fridays post, so make sure to submit your answers to the form before Friday. At the end of the series, a random prize winner will be drawn from those who participated!

Week 4: Who Wrote It?

  • The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years – if it ever did end – began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.

  • Half an hour after Tim Jamiesons’s Delta flight was scheduled to leave Tampa for the bright lights and tall buildings of New York, it was still parked at the gate.

  • Umber whunnnn yerrrnnn umber whunnnn fayunnnn These sounds: even in the haze.

  • Louis Creed, who had lost his father at three and who had never known a grandfather, never expected to find a father as he entered his middle age, but that was exactly what happened…

  • Scott Carey knocked on the door of the Ellis condo unit, and Bob Ellis (everyone in Highland Acres still called him Doctor Bob, although he was five years retired) let him in.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Who Wrote It Wednesdays challenges! The submission form is now closed, but you can discover the answer on our Favorite Friday post that is now live.
