I Found This Great Book is my podcast and website where I share the great books I have discovered and read. I love mysteries and classic black literature. Every other week I feature a different Black mystery author. I will also discuss books or short stories I have read and recommend. I also take deep dives into a particular author's work. For example, I am currently reading the novels of Jessie Redmon Fauset and discussing them with my bookish friends. I am also reading the published short stories of Zora Neale Hurston. Occasionally, I get the opportunity to share interviews with authors and scholars.

I have built a directory of Black Mystery Authors. Currently there are 150 authors in the directory and over 550 books. The directory allows you to discover the authors by their name, the type of mysteries they write, and you can browse the book covers. My goal is to give you the experience of browsing through a books store that features mysteries by black authors.

I hope you find I Found This Great Book helpful in discovering a new author or book.
