Sneaky Interviews Beast, the Dog from A Spirit Seeks Asylum, A Bay Island Psychic Mystery by Lena Gregory

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

My name is Beast, and my author is Lena Gregory.

A pleasure to meet you both. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

I appear in Lena’s Bay Island Psychic Mysteries, Death at First Sight, Occult and Battery, Clairvoyant and Present Danger, Spirited Away, Grave Consequences, and A Spirit Seeks Asylum.

That’s pawsome. You sound quite popular. Please give information about your series.

The Bay Island Psychic Mysteries are about my owner, Cass Donovan, who owns a psychic shop on Bay Island’s boardwalk.

Sounds very interesting. Are you based on a real dog such as your author’s?

I’m a Leonberger, which my author never had but very much wants, but my personality is based on a combination of all of my author’s dogs. And some of my “accidents” are based on real incidents that happened with my author’s dogs.

I’m also based on several of my authors’ cats, although mostly her Siamese Oliver who has been gone 3 years on Rainbow Bridge.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

This is one of my favorite scenes with my Uncle Bee from Occult and Battery:

Beast danced around in circles while Bee tried to clip the leash onto his collar. “Will you stay still already?”

“Sit.”

Beast ignored Cass’s command/request/whatever.

Bee paused for a minute to stare at her, brow lifted in a you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-me look.

She rolled her eyes and turned to open the door.

Beast shot through the gap before she had it fully open, dragging Bee behind him. Even with his two-handed grip on the leash, Bee couldn’t slow the fleeing animal.

Ugh . . .

Stephanie burst out laughing.

“Not funny,” Bee called over his shoulder as he tried to stop Beast before they reached the back stairway. They rounded the corner at the end of the hall, and Beast launched himself down the stairs.

Bee’s shoulder hit the wall, and he ricocheted off. A tremendous racket—filled with bangs and curses—followed.

Ah jeez. Resisting the urge to go back to bed and pull the covers over her head, Cass ran down the remainder of the hallway. She skidded to a stop, with Stephanie breathing down her neck, when she reached the top of the stairs.

Bee lay in a heap at the bottom, leash tangled around him, Beast licking his face.

“Are you all right?” Cass yelled down.

“That is a rhetorical question, right?” Bee pushed up to sit, lifted one foot, and started untangling the leash.

Cass and Stephanie pounded down the stairs. When they reached him, they each grabbed one arm and helped haul him to his feet.

Once he was standing, Bee smoothed his jacket, adjusted his scarf, and tousled his hair.

“Are you hurt?” Grabbing the leash, Cass helped him disentangle himself.

Beast dropped his tongue out of the side of his mouth, panting frantically.

“I don’t think so.”

Stephanie handed Bee one of his shoes.

He took it and bent to put it back on.

With a quick look over Bee’s back at Cass, Stephanie caught her lip between her teeth to keep from laughing. She couldn’t stop the laughter from reaching her eyes, though.

Cass bit the inside of her cheek.

“Don’t think I don’t know what the two of you are doing,” Bee said. If looks could kill . . .

Laughter blurted out, and Cass slapped a hand over her mouth. “I’m . . .” She sucked in a breath and tried to control herself. “Sorry.”

“No you’re not.” He pointed at her. “You. Better. Get. This. Dog. Trained!”

She nodded, her head bobbing like a bobblehead, tears streaming down her cheeks.

Stephanie hiccupped as she tried to contain her own outburst.

A smile tugged at the corners of Bee’s mouth. “I think it was the shoe bouncing down that made all that noise.”

“Really?” Laughter erupted. This time Cass made no attempt to restrain it. “Was it the shoe cursing up a storm too?”

“Ha ha.” Finally Bee joined their laughter. “Just schedule some kind of obedience classes for this animal. Before he hurts somebody.”

Beast tipped his head innocently to the side, his eyes wide.

“Yeah, right.” Taking the leash from her once more, Bee eyed the dog warily. “That innocent routine doesn’t work with me, buddy.”

“Are you sure you still want to walk him? I can do it.” Cass said.

He waved her off and headed for the back of the house. “Even a tumble down the stairs is better than a conversation with the police.”

“Ha ha.” Finally Bee joined their laughter. “Just schedule some kind of obedience classes for this animal. Before he hurts somebody.”

Beast tipped his head innocently to the side, his eyes wide.

“Yeah, right.” Taking the leash from her once more, Bee eyed the dog warily. “That innocent routine doesn’t work with me, buddy.”

“Are you sure you still want to walk him? I can do it.” Cass said.

He waved her off and headed for the back of the house. “Even a tumble down the stairs is better than a conversation with the police.”

Great excerpt. Thanks for sharing.

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

I always have fun, and I’m always loved. No matter that Cass has never had a pet before, and just between us has no clue what she’s doing, she loves me with all of her heart.

That’s so sweet.

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

Well, I’m pretty much a silent dog, but I do get my point across when needed.

I’m sure you do.

What advice would you give other pet characters?

I would probably tell other pet characters to make sure their voices are heard. Heroes and heroines are quite chatty, so make sure your author hears from you too.

Pawsome advice.

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

My next book, A Spirit Seeks Asylum just released on July 13th, and my next book, #7 in the Bay Island Psychic series is due to release next summer.

Best tail wags to you and your author. I’m sharing your blog tour and giveaway below. Thanks so much for the interview.

Cass Donovan is confronted by ghoulish crimes both old and new when a defunct asylum is the site of a fresh murder and a long-hidden injustice . . .

The old abandoned buildings of the Twin Forks Lunatic Asylum have always fascinated and frightened clairvoyant Cass Donovan, but she never dreamed her psychic abilities would be put to the test there. Then the new owner of the site tells her he plans to renovate it and turn it into a boarding school, and he’ll pay Cass handsomely to determine whether the place is haunted! Cass accepts his offer, but her search for hints of old ghosts soon has her looking for clues among the living when the man who hired her turns up dead.

Returning to the shuttered asylum looking for evidence of who may have wanted her client out of the way, Cass stumbles upon signs of yet another murder, even as she’s besieged by an onslaught of haunting voices from the past. When it comes to light that rival real estate developers have been hatching plans of their own for the property, Cass sees no shortage of motives for the murders, but she’ll have to find a way to quiet the disturbing voices from long ago and focus on the here and now, because whoever’s behind the killings has targeted Cass as their next victim . . .

Sneaky Interviews Smoky from The Moonshine Shack Murder, the First Southern Homebrew Cozy Mystery by Diane Kelly

Hi, Kitty. Welcome to my blog, and thanks for joining me for an inter”mew.” What is your name and your author’s name?

My name is Smoky. You can probably guess that I’m gray. I’m named after the Smoky Mountains near Chattanooga, Tennessee, where I live. My author’s name is Diane Kelly.

Mice to meet you. I’ve never been to Tennessee. I’m a New York State cat. I live in the fictional, small town of Cobble Cove. We have a mountain that overlooks water, but I spend most of my time in the Cobble Cove Library because I’m a library cat.

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

I’m in The Moonshine Shack Murder. It’s the first in Diane’s Southern Homebrew moonshine series, and it’s a cozy mystery. Next year, I’ll be in book #2, The Proof is in the Poison. There will be a third book the following year. People just can’t seem to get enough of me. But who could blame them? I’m a pretty cool cat.  

I’m sure you are. I’m a cozy mystery cat, too, and there are 5 books in my series so far and also 4 stories.

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

Yes, I’m in a series called the Southern Homebrew series. My human, who is named Hattie Hayes, learned to make moonshine from her granddaddy. She’s decided to turn the family moonshine recipe into a commercial enterprise. She makes pure rotgut, but she makes a bunch of fruity flavors, too. She runs a store called The Moonshine Shack in the riverfront district of Chattanooga, Tennessee. She can’t get by without me, so takes me along to work with her. My favorite spot is in the front window, where I can watch the street and take naps.

Very interesting. I like to nap in the library’s bay window.

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

Partly. My author’s male cats have all been docile sweeties, but I’m not. I’m more like her female cats, who are more demanding and moody. She’s had many, many cats and dogs over the years, but currently she has three dogs and two cats, plus two kittens she’s fostering. They’re disgustingly cute. 

Your author sounds like a cat lover, like mine. Debbie has three cats. I was based on her Siamese Oliver who has since gone to Rainbow Bridge. Then she rescued two kittens who are now three years old.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

I circled around to the alley, parked, and hopped out to unlock the back door that led to the storeroom. My gray cat, Smoky, named for the nearby mountains, lay atop the wooden desk in the corner, watching me with his firefly-green eyes as he lazily licked a paw. The cat weighed upward of sixteen pounds and, unless food was in the offing, rarely moved, more cinder block than companion. I greeted him, as always, with an affectionate scratch under the chin and a “Hey, boy. Did you miss me?” His yawn told me that my absence had not affected him in the least. Hurtful, sure, but I’d long since accepted that ours would be a one-sided relationship.

Even with help from a dolly, moving the cases from the van to the storeroom proved to be backbreaking work. The muscles in my arms strained and shook, unused to being punished so severely. Smoky cast me a look of disdain each time I groaned or grunted. Next batch, I’d box the moonshine in smaller cases of six jars rather than twelve.

As I rolled the dolly outside to round up more moonshine, my ears picked up an unexpected sound. Clop-clop-clop. I turned to discover a mounted police officer riding up the alleyway on a beautiful chestnut mare. The horse’s reddish-brown coat gleamed in the sunshine as she tossed her flaxen mane. The officer wore his uniform with black riding boots, a helmet, and mirrored sunglasses. Despite being built like a sculpted boulder, he rode with a graceful athleticism, at one with his steed.

Clop-clop. When they reached me, the officer pulled back on the reins and spoke to his horse. “Whoa, Charlotte. Let’s find out what this little filly is up to.”

It took me a moment to realize I was the “little filly” he spoke of. Standing a mere five feet, I was undeniably small. But I made up for my stature in tenacity and sass. I looked up at the officer to see a set of broad shoulders, a strong jaw, and myself looking back, reflected in his sunglasses. I angled my head to indicate his horse. “I see you’ve got a thing for leggy blondes.”

He sat silent and unmoving for a few beats before his lips spread in a slow smile. He ducked his chin and reached up to ease his sunglasses down, gazing at me over the rims, his amber eyes lit up like lightning bugs in amusement. His focus shifted to the logo on my van and the cartons of liquor before returning to my face. “A bootlegger, huh? I suspect you’ll cause me no end of trouble.”

“I can’t make any promises, Officer.”

In a swift, smooth move, he slid down from his horse to stand directly in front of me. He towered over me by at least a foot, putting him around six feet, two inches tall and putting me on eye level with his rock-hard pecs and his name badge. M. LANDERS. Why does that name sound vaguely familiar?

Officer Landers removed his glasses and tucked them into the collar of his uniform. “I’ll give you a hand. Charlotte needs a rest, anyway.”

With my back and biceps screaming for mercy, I wasn’t about to turn him down. “Thanks.”

He tied his horse’s reins to a water pipe before reaching up to remove his helmet. When he did, he released a cascade of loose, short curls the color of buckskin. He ran his hand through his hair and it settled into a contemporary pompadour, short on the sides, longer on top. He resembled a rockabilly artist, or a blond version of Elvis from his early years. I felt the heat of a blush warm my cheeks.

He grabbed a case from the back of the van and tucked it under one arm before grabbing another. As he turned to carry them through the back door of my shop, he spotted Smoky standing sentinel in the doorway. “Is your guard cat going to attack?

“Smoky?” I stepped over and scooped my precious pet up in my arms. “He’s harmless.” Smoky stiff-armed me, pushing his paw against my chest, playing hard to get. Three years into our relationship and I was still trying to win the furry guy over. Maybe someday.

The cop eyed my cat and shook his head. “That there is why I prefer horses. They show some affection now and then.”

Pawsome! Thanks for sharing that purrfect excerpt.

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

That I get to be where the action is. It satisfies my cat curiosity. Also, that I get to be loved on by Hattie. (I’d never let her know this, but I kind of love her, too.)

Awww. How sweet. I love Alicia, too, and I like most of the other Cobble Cove library staff members.

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

I’m silent, but I find other ways to communicate my thoughts. Clawing, spitting, and hissing are quite effective. So is a purr, though I use my purr sparingly. Wouldn’t want Hattie to think she’s got me wrapped around her finger. The position of my ears and tail are more subtle communicators that I use.

(MOL) Meow Out Loud. Good point. I use similar non-verbal clues with Alicia, but in the later books and stories of the series, readers can now see my thoughts, as can the other pets.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, but don’t lick it, either. No one likes a mooch or a suck-up. Always sleep in the sunny spot. Bugs aren’t as delicious as they might look, and it’s hard to swallow when they’re wiggling in your mouth. Stick to what’s put in your bowl.

Great advice for all us cat characters.

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

Yes, my very first book came out July 6th. It’s called The Moonshine Shack Murder. It’s a great tail – I mean, tale – if I do say so myself.

Concatulations to you and your author. I’m sharing your blog tour below. Best whiskers to you and your author on this fun series.

In this intoxicating new cozy mystery series, the future for modern-day moonshiner Hattie Hayes looks bright–until death darkens the doorstep of her Moonshine Shack.

The Hayes family has made moonshine in Chattanooga since the days of Prohibition, and Hattie is happy to continue the tradition, serving up fun, fruity flavors in mason jars for locals and tourists alike. All signs indicate her new ‘shine shop will be a smashing success. What’s more, mounted police officer Marlon Landers has taken a shine to Hattie. For the first time ever, the stars seemed to have aligned in both her work and romantic life. But when a body ends up on her store’s doorstep alongside a broken jar of her Firefly Moonshine, it just might be lights out for her fledgling business.

The homicide detective can’t seem to identify the person who killed the owner of a nearby bar. The only witness is Hattie’s longhaired gray cat, and Smoky isn’t talking. When the detective learns that the victim and Hattie had a heated exchange shortly before his murder, she becomes her prime suspect.

Lest Hattie end up behind bars like her bootlegging great-grandfather a century before, she must distill the evidence herself and serve the killer a swift shot of justice.

Sneaky the Library Cat Interviews Macavity the Cat from Who, Me? Frog Bows, Fraud and Aphrodite : A Macavity & Me Mystery

Meow there, Kitty. What is your name and your author’s name?

I’m Macavity. My friend and caretaker, Bryn, says I was named for a poem by T.S. Eliot, but I’m not familiar with it.

Mice to meet you. I’m familiar with that poem. My author and also the main human character in my books is a librarian, so I’ve picked up a lot of knowledge from them and am great at Googling information, too.

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

So far I’m in two humorous mysteries with long titles:

Why Me? Chimeras, Conundrums and Dead Goldfish (A Macavity & Me Mystery)

Who Me? Fog Bows, Fraud and Aphrodite (A Macavity & Me Mystery)

I didn’t get my name or my face on the first book cover, but I insisted they put them on the second one. And they did.

Don’t feel bad. My face is only on one of the books in my series, and my name isn’t on any of the covers except two of my eBook stories because my series is called the Cobble Cove mysteries, not Sneaky and Alicia’s mysteries.

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

Yes, it’s a series that is just getting under way. The main human is Bryn Baczek. She adopted me because we both have different colored eyes. We live on a sailboat in a small marina. I’m the only cat in the marina, but other boat owners often bring their dogs with them. Fortunately, I’m tough and can hold my own.

I understand from Bryn that the mysteries she gets mixed up with involve serious issues. Like illegal human organ trafficking and non-profit fraud. Sometimes I have to help her out. Once I even saved her life. In return, she buys me my favorite foods—when she remembers to shop. I sometimes pick up snacks at the boat where two of her friends live. One friend pretends not to like me, but he feeds me smoked salmon when no one is around.

The only thing that upsets me about Bryn is that she occasionally ties our boat up in different locations or takes it out for a sail. And it’s not always for pleasure. One time we had to hide out at another marina for days because some bad people were looking for her. I’m a homebody and prefer that our home stays tied to the dock at “our” spot.

Very interesting. I imagine living at a marina is different than living in a library like I do.

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

My author claims she is allergic to cats and that I’m more than enough pet for her to handle. I know she has a soft spot in her heart for me; otherwise my name wouldn’t be on her book covers.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

Sunday, I slept in. Macavity crawled up on my bunk and stretched before settling in, legs tucked under this body, his breathing slowly transformed into purring, a gentle comforting sound. He likes it best when things are calm. And consistent. If he’d had a chance to choose his owner instead of the other way around, he probably wouldn’t have chosen me. But in spite of my flaws, he hangs around. Perhaps for moments like these.

Macavity’s purring was mesmerizing. Trance-like. Although I was awake, I felt completely relaxed. My mind at ease. Suspended in time. It was a moment of mental flossing, the plaque of random thoughts slowly dissolving until I was cleansed of all the clutter and useless information that usually chases itself around in my head. Now, thanks to Macavity, there was space to form new thoughts and allow fresh perspectives to creep in.  ***  Macavity apparently decided our idyllic moment was over. He leapt off the bunk and went in search of more interesting activities. I appreciated how he’d help me focus my thinking about Sabrina’s death, but it would have been even more helpful if he’d been able to contribute a few ideas of his own. He was, after all, a pretty good judge of people.

Pawsome excerpt. Thank you for sharing it.

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

I like the fact that she realizes I’m the alpha in our relationship and therefore caters to most of my needs. And I did appreciate her taking me along the last time she house sat. Her friend’s dog, Cora, was nice enough. But I’d prefer she stayed home, with the Aspara at dock, all the time.

Dogs can be okay. There are two dogs in my series, but I have the bigger roles, although Fido was pretty important in our first book. He takes a back seat to me now which is just the way I like it.

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

I don’t “meow,” I offer opinions, ask for things, and make complaints. Bryn knows what I’m trying to say even though we don’t speak the same language.

That’s cool. Alicia and the other residents of Cobble Cove understand my non-verbal language, too.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Make your owner and writer take you seriously. Cats are better than people in so many ways and deserve to be treated with respect.

You speak words of wisdom, Macavity.

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

Who Me? Fog Bows, Fraud and Aphrodite just came out on June 28th. A lot happens to me in the story. And although I don’t solve the mystery, I help Bryn figure it out.

That’s all us cat characters can do.

Thanks so much for the pawsome interview, Macavity. I’m sharing your blog tour below. Best whiskers to you and your author on your new release and series.

Who, Me? Fog Bows, Fraud and Aphrodite is a mystery set in an urban boating community in Seattle. Bryn Baczek lives on a sailboat in a small marina with her cat, Macavity, and a series of short-lived goldfish. When a neighbor she doesn’t like becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation, she reluctantly seeks evidence to prove him innocent. She ends up being threatened by the victim’s abusive boyfriend, betrayed by a close friend, and can’t resist using subterfuge to enter a secured building to search the victim’s office. Although she shares what she learns with a charming detective, she is one step ahead of the police in identifying the murderer . . . a step that puts her in a dangerous face-to-face confrontation.
