I don't care who writes a book. It is more important that the book they write be something I actually want to read.

I agree. Going through some of the mysteries I've read recently, a lot of them are by female authors. But a fair number are by men: Lee Child, Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, David Baldacci, Rex Stout, Dick Francis, Peter Robinson, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, John Dickson Carr, (vintage) Carter Dickson (vintage), Robert Ludlum, William Kent Kreuger, Brad Parks, Ken Isaacson, Jim Butcher, Jonathan Kellerman, Blake Crouch, Philip MacDonald (vintage), G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown mysteries, Craig Johnson, Jeffrey Archer, Aaron Elkins, Simon Brett, Jeffrey Marks, Jeff Abbott, Linwood Barclay, John Verdon, Cyril Hare, Anthony Horowitz, Lawrence Block, Michael Gilbert, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and even A.A. Milne (his classic mystery is THE RED HOUSE MYSTERY).
