How many Nancy Drew mysteries ARE there?

The Christian Manifesto interviews me about my new whodunit Nursing a Grudge -- wherein we discuss the influence of Nero Wolfe, how Earl Walker is like Adrian Monk, and whether or not Nancy Drew has more than 100 books.

PS - The "Chef Boyardee" joke at the end was actually a reference to a running gag ... but all the earlier stuff was edited out of the interview. (So, no, I did not just spontaneously advertise Chef Boyardee.)

PPS - There were 175 books in the original Nancy Drew series.
