Sneaky Interviews Bun the Rabbit from Left Fur Dead, A Jules & Bun Mystery, by J. M. Griffin

Sneaky here with another pet interview. Today, I’m speaking with a bunny whose current book, Left Fur Dead, is on tour with Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book.

Hello, there, Mr. Rabbit. What is your name and your author’s name?

Bun the Rabbit, my author’s name is J.M. Griffin

Dig that cottontail, Bun. It’s mice to meet you.

What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

Left Fur Dead, June 2019 release; Who’s Dead, Doc? TBR in February 2020


Are you in a series? If so, please give information about it.

Yes, I am a rescued telepathic rabbit who lives on a rabbit farm in southern New Hampshire. Jules Bridge, the farm owner, and my best friend, is my housemate and partner in solving mysteries. The sheriff doesn’t like it when we get involved in his investigations, but we are usually way ahead of him and pay him no mind. The crimes we solve are important to us since they generally concern us and the farm.

A telepathic rabbit? What a great character. Most cats have intuition, so you might consider us a bit telepathic, too. Your series sounds very interesting.

Are you based on a real animal such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

No, JM got the idea for me when she was watching the wild white-tailed rabbits that eat in her back yard.

There are a lot of rabbits in my author’s neighborhood, too. Her cats love watching them.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

It tickles me that she injects humor and wit-filled dialogue for me.

That’s sounds like fun.

Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

I can speak through telepathy, though it’s rare for people to realize I’m communicating with them. I thought Jules might never figure it out, but when she did, our lives changed for the better.

I’m a cat character who uses means other than telepathy to communicate with Alicia and the other Cobble Cove folks. I’ve never “spoken,” but my body language and cat sounds usually lead to the clues.

What advice would you give other pet characters?

I think it adds to stories when animals are given the option of communicating on a somewhat human level.

I think all animals communicate on a close-to human level, so it makes sense that animal characters do so. Is that deep, or what?

Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

The second in the Bun and Jules series, Who’s Dead, Doc? will be released in February25, 2020, and can be preordered now.

Excellent. It’s been fun chatting with you, Bun, even with that carrot in your mouth. Now I have to hop to it and share you and your author’s blog tour. Thanks for coming by, and best whiskers to both of you on your new release.

On Fur Bridge Farm, Jules cares for rescued rabbits. But when a killer strikes, she’ll need a rabbit to rescue her . . .

Juliette “Jules” Bridge prides herself on the tender rehabilitation she provides for injured or abused rabbits on her New Hampshire rescue farm, but she has a very special relationship with one bunny in particular. Bun is a black-and-white rabbit who happens to have the ability to communicate through mental telepathy. Once she got over the shock, Jules found her furry friend had a lot to say.

One frigid March morning on their walk together, Bun spots a body. The police identify the frozen stiff as Arthur Freeman, aka Arty the Mime. Jules and Arty knew each other on the children’s party circuit, where he’d perform magic tricks and she had an educational rabbit petting pen. With Bun egging her on, Jules decides it’s time they hop to it and put their heads together to discover who silenced the mime. But their investigation leads them down a rabbit hole of more suspects and lies, while a killer sets a trap for them . . .
