Dorothy L Sayers

The Dorothy L Sayers Society

I used one of my Barnes & Noble christmas gift cards to purchase the first of Dorothy Sayer's Peter Whimsey mysteries, "Whose Body," and enjoyed dipping back into a genre I rarely read. I think I'm addicted enough to read the other seven or eight in the series.

Dorothy Sayers is well known also as Christian theologian and student of doctrine. Two questions: What is it that draws (apparently) people to pursue these two craft simultaneously, theology and mystery novel composition? I'm thinking of G.K. Chesterton as my other example. If indeed this a common type of wedding of writerly vocations, can anyone suggest other names.
