Mark Schweizer, born and raised American writer and musical genius, has created a character in His Liturgical Mysteries Series of books that captures the hearts and attention of readers and leaves them wanting more at the end of every book. Since 2002, Schweizer has released more than ten books in the series, each one taking His fictional character on a new adventure that, once again, allows the reader to dive into their own imagination to live out His experiences.
Schweizer was born in 1956 in Florida. He studied music at Stetson University and received a doctorate degree in vocal performance after studying at the University of Arizona. Once He completed His degrees, He went on to teaching music-related subjects as a music teacher at Stetson University, where He first started with His studies. He later also taught music to students for a total of eight years at Louisiana College.

Apart from being famous for His fictional characters and the mystery series He’s written, Schweizer has also hosted a classical music radio show as well as various stage productions throughout the years. Schweizer is married with two children, and He and His wife also has two grandchildren.
The main character Schweizer brings to live through the Liturgical Mysteries series is Hayden Konig. Hayden is an extremely busy man that works at the police as a detective. The fictional story takes place in St. Germaine, a small town within the fictional North Carolina. Hayden has many talents and is actively involved throughout the entire series with all the adventures and everything else that happens.
Apart from being an exceptional and hard-working police detective, Hayden is also very involved with the Episcopal church called St. Barnabas. He’s taken on the responsibility of being the choirmaster, as well as the organist for this church.
When Hayden isn’t busy with His detective work or helping out His local church members have a lovely service every Sunday, He write mystery stories that captivates the reader’s attention. Even though His writing skills aren’t top-notch, He is extremely wealthy and decides to buy a 1939 Underwood typewriter – hoping that the writer will bring Him luck and help improve His writing abilities. Of course, this isn’t how things work and Hayden comes to great disappointment when it doesn’t work the way He hoped it would.
The first book published in the Liturgical Mysteries series is “The Alto Wore Tweed”. The book was published by mark Schweizer in 2002 and, after being such a successful novel, Schweizer went on to publish more books.

The story tells about Hayden being the chief of the police station and working as a detective, as well as Him being a part-time volunteer for His local church. The story goes on to tell the reader more about the police detective’s dreams about becoming a famous mystery writer, and how He pursues that dream even though He faces many obstacles and challenges. It is really essential that you start out with this book if you want to dive into the story – the first book in the series introduces you to all the important aspects and elements that should be taken into consideration throughout the entire Liturgical Mysteries series.

Many unpredictable and unexpected twists and turns awaits readers of the first book in the series, and also gives the user a “taste” of what’s to expect in the next series of books. The novels also feature a story that follows in sequence, so readers should start with the first book, then the second book, then the third book, and so forth.
