Sneaky Interviews the Authors and Dogs of To Fetch a Thief, a Mutt Mystery

Sneaky here with a pawsome interview of the authors and dog characters of  To Fetch a Thief, A Mutt Mystery, that’s on tour with Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book

Meow there. Please excuse my feline accent, but I’m not used to interviewing humans, although I’m glad to see that you’ve brought along your dog characters, too. I’m pretty proficient at Canine, having been around my dog co-star Fido from my Cobble Cove mysteries. Can one of you tell me about your new release?

To Fetch a Thief is the first collection in the Mutt Mysteries Series. It’s four, dog-themed novella mysteries. The authors are Teresa Inge, Heather Weidner, Jayne Ormerod, and Rosemary Shomaker. 

Hot dog that sounds good.

What book(s), novella(s), or short storie(s) have you or your authors appeared in?

Teresa Inge: Her stories appear in the Virginia is for Mysteries series and 50 Shades of Cabernet.

Heather Weidner: Her stories appear in the Virginia is for Mysteries series and 50 Shades of Cabernet. She is also the author of the Delanie Fitzgerald mystery series: Secret Lives and Private Eyes and The Tulip Shirt Murders.

Jayne Ormerod: She is the author of the Blonds at the Beach Mysteries, The Blond Leading the Blond and Blond Luck. She has contributed seven short mysteries to various anthologies to include Virginia is for Mysteries, Volumes I and II, and 50 Shades of Cabernet.  

Rosemary Shomaker: She writes women’s fiction, paranormal, and mystery short stories. Her stories appear in the Virginia is for Mysteries series and 50 Shades of Cabernet.

Heather Weidner: Heather writes a mystery series, The Delanie Fitzgerald mystery series with a sassy PI who tends to get herself in and out of humorous situations.

Jayne Ormerod: Jayne writes the Blonds at the Beach mystery series.

You authors have loads of experience. My author writes the Cobble Cove mystery series, but it is more cat-oriented, and I’d like to think I’m the star although it also features two dogs — Fido and Ruby. 

Are any of the dogs in this book based on a real dog such as one of the author’s?  If so, please give further details.

Heather Weidner: My character in “Diggin’ up Dirt” in To Fetch a Thief is Darby, the Jack Russell, and she helps her owner unearth some hidden clues. Darby is based on my Jack Russell Terrier, Disney. She and her brother Riley rule our house and keep us on our toes.

Jayne Ormerod: No, I am based on a picture my author got off of the Internet. She was dog-less at the time. But I have the loyalty and curiosity and love for daily walks that all of my author’s other dogs had.

Rosemary Shomaker: Hello, Sneaky. Thanks for asking us, the To Fetch a Thief canine characters what we like about these stories. I’m not using my name here, because that’s one of the story’s first surprises. While my creator Rosemary doesn’t own a sheprador like Adam Moreland does in “This is Not a Dog Park,” the emotional connection Adam has with his pet in the story reveals Rosemary’s bond with dogs. She idealized me, her canine character in this story, by giving me attributes she likes in the dogs she’s owned, including my general quietness, alertness, and loyalty. Most of the dogs in Rosemary’s life have been hounds. She currently owns a male, short-haired mixed hound. Before that, her family dog was a very docile female hound, park bluetick coonhound, I’m told. 

Teresa Inge: Cagney and Lacey are based on real life Yorkshire Terriers who help solve the crime. 

What a great cast of pups. I’m loosely based on Debbie’s Siamese cat, Oliver, who passed away last year. It’s always nice when authors put their pets in books.

What do the dogs in this collection like most about  their  roles in the stories?

Heather Weidner: Darby is a bundle of energy. She’s always ready to plan, enjoy a snack, or take a walk. And in “Diggin’ up Dirt,” she has a habit of digging holes in the backyard. But she uncovers some interesting things.

Jayne Ormerod: I love going everywhere with my people-mom, Meg, even when we are chasing bad guys. She is my best friend and I would die for her. Almost did! I got to be the hero! And they had a party for me! I really liked that.

Rosemary Shomaker: In “This is Not a Dog Park,” I like being Adam’s companion. He’s good to me, he loves me, and he and I get a lot of exercise. Our workouts rise to a new level when someone leaves a gift for us at our apartment door—a tennis ball chucker! Adam throws scores of tennis balls to me. I’m also a boss at Frisbee retrieving. Mostly, I’m happy to get Adam out of the apartment and interacting with other humans and dogs. 

Teresa Inge: That readers enjoy my stories.

Great answers. I’m wagging my tail which is more like a swishing it, the cat version of tail wagging.

Do the dogs talk in the book, or are they just a silent pet like I am?

All the dogs in To Fetch a Thief are a silent pet like you. However, they do help their owners solve crimes and capers.

Of claws they do. That’s the main job of cozy mystery pet characters. That and looking and acting adorable.

What advice would you give other dog characters?

Heather Weidner: Do what you do best! Dogs bring out the best in humans. I love that all the dogs in the four novellas are crime-fighters too.

Jayne Ormerod: Keep your nose to the ground and keep your guard up. People aren’t always the best judges of character, but dogs are!

Rosemary Shomaker: Dogs are great at unconditional love. My advice? Keep loving your humans, just like I love Adam. Seek to connect your humans to the world by widening your circle of human and dog friends. Your human needs you. Humans can be too introspective and often self-pitying. Keep pulling your humans out of themselves. Link them to the joys of everyday like being outside, simple walks, and a warm friend.

Teresa Inge: Make them a character in the story with their own personality.

Those are all great tips. I’ll share them with Fido and Ruby, and I think they can apply to cats, too.

Do the authors have plans for any new stories? Please give dates and details.

We are working on the second in the Mystery Mutt series. Stay tuned for more information.

Heather Weidner: I’m working on a cozy mystery series set in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the third mystery in my Delanie Fitzgerald series. That will be out next year. Next year, I also have a story in Deadly Southern Charm: A Lethal Ladies Mystery Anthology, and a non-fiction piece in PromoPhobia.

Jayne Ormerod: Not yet. Me and my people-mom are still getting over the frights in “It’s a Dog Gone Shame!” But I have a dog’s sense there will be more adventures for us some day. We make a good crime-solving team.

Rosemary Shomaker: Look for Mutt Mysteries Collection #2 in fall 2019 for more great dog stories. I may have a story in that collection!

In the spring of 2019, you’ll find my “Heads or Tails” in the Wittier Than Thou – Tales of Whimsy and Mirth inspired by the life and works of John Greenleaf Whittier. It’s the third anthology benefitting the Haverhill, Massachusetts, Whittier Birthplace museum.

Teresa Inge: Books two and three of the Mutt Mystery Series.

Thank you all for the great interview, and best tail wags on your stories and the series. I’m sharing information about your blog tour below.

Sneaky Interviews Ribbons from A Timeless Celebration, a Century Cozy Mystery, by Dianne Ascroft

Sneaky here with another pawsome interview of a cat character. Today, it’s my pleasure to cat chat with a cozy mystery cat whose current book, A Timeless Celebration, is on tour with Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book.

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

Hello. I’m Ribbons and my author and servant is Dianne Ascroft.

Mice to meet you.

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

I’ve only recently made my debut in the novel, A Timeless Celebration, and a prequel short story, City Sunset, but I know my author plans to feature me in future books in the Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries series.

That sounds purrfect. Tell us a little bit about the book.

My author has only written the first book so far but it’s the beginning of the Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries series. The books are set in a small town in Canada and my littermate, Raggs, and I live with widow Lois Stone. We recently moved from Toronto to Fenwater and we’re settling in there. As we explore our new life we frequently encounter new adventures and mysteries to solve. Lois thinks she is doing the investigating but she would miss half the clues without our help – especially mine. Raggs can be so lazy at times.

That’s nice that you have a partner. I’m the only cat star in my Cobble Cove series, but a new cat came to town in our new book, so we’ll see.

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

Yes, my littermate, Raggs, and I are based on our author’s two tortoiseshell cats, Snooks and Rocky. The ‘real’ cats, if we must use that term, live with our author on her farm and keep a close eye on her, especially at meal times. I’m much younger, more intelligent and more attractive than either of the ‘real’ cats though.

And modest I see.

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

Excerpt from Chapter 18.

Late at night, after Lois hears an intruder in her house and goes downstairs to her kitchen to investigate.

“As far as she could see, the room was empty except for Ribbons standing on the kitchen table, her tail straight up in the air and twitching furiously, as the cat stared past her owner. Lois was starting to turn her head in the direction in which the cat was looking when she felt her shoulder shoved roughly. Knocked off balance, she toppled onto the floor in the middle of the room, twisting onto her back and bumping her head against one of the legs of a chair as she fell. She heard loud bangs near her but was too dazed to focus on what was happening.

The noise quickly stopped, and she lay dazed and winded for a few moments until she remembered the intruder. Where is he? Is he still here? She pushed herself onto her elbow, halfway to a sitting position on the floor, her eyes trained on the back door. There was no one there and the phantom was hovering beside the screen door, not attempting to block the exit any longer. Lois glanced around the room. No sign of the intruder. He must have rushed out of the back door right after he shoved her. But not before the phantom confronted him; she just knew that was the noise she had heard. She hoped it had done some damage to him.

Lois let out a loud sigh. After all this, she didn’t have any description of the intruder except that it was a man and he was dressed in black. That wasn’t very much. It probably described most burglars.

She looked at the grey shape that seemed to be watching over her. “Thanks, Beldie. You are Beldie, aren’t you?” Lois watched the phantom. Its wide-set eyes had a knowing look and it seemed to glow brighter for a moment. Maybe that was a response to her question. “Too bad you or Ribbons couldn’t talk and tell me what he looked like or who he was.”

Lois rubbed the back of her head as she pulled her legs to one side and rolled onto her knees in preparation for standing up. She shuffled across the floor on her knees and placed her hands on the seat of the chair to push herself to her feet. Ribbons appeared from under the table and wove around her legs.

Lois gingerly bent to pat the cat, rubbing the back of her own head with her other hand. “I’m glad you’re okay. I guess you had the sense to stay away from whoever that was. Not like me storming in here. You probably got a better look at him too. If only you could tell me what you saw.”

Ribbons meowed and flicked her tail back and forth across Lois’s leg, then marched toward the back door. Lois’s gaze followed the cat as the animal moved. At the screen door the cat stopped. Lois noticed a rectangular white object was lying on the floor next to the spot where the cat was standing. She peered at the object and one of her eyebrows quirked upward as she recognised it. Why was the packet of photographs lying on the floor? Had Ribbons batted it off the table earlier? Lois drew her eyebrows into a frown as she thought. No, she couldn’t have.

Lois was certain that she had put the photographs into her purse when she got home from town this afternoon. She wanted to be sure that she took them with her in the morning so she could give Marge the set and drop the negatives into the drugstore on her way to the Highland Games to get the copies made for Ken.

Had the intruder deliberately taken the photographs from her purse and left her purse on the dining room table?”

Paws up! I love it.

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

I don’t mean to brag but I do like the attention I get – not to mention the treats they lavish on me. My littermate, Raggs, is rather lazy and she often sleeps through anything exciting – and the snacks when Lois sits up late discussing a mystery with her friend Marge. But I’m always right there to nudge Lois in the right direction when she needs a bit of help and to share the snacks. It feels good to help her and, like I said, I don’t mind the attention I get when I do something clever either.

Character cats, just like real cats, like to be in the limelight.

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

It’s a little more often than occasionally that I meow. I make my own wants known as well as helping Lois when she misses clues. But I draw the line at talking. If Lois and her friends can’t learn my language, I don’t intend to speak theirs. I don’t know why it’s so difficult for them to understand me sometimes when I have no trouble at all understanding them.

A dilemma of many of our fellow cat characters who prefer not to speak human.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Give your author the odd nudge and remind her you’re there. She needs to be sure to include you as often as possible in every book she writes. You’re much more interesting and photogenic than the humans in any story.

I agree completely, Ribbons. I actually nudged Debbie to give me this blog and my glorious image on the cover of our 3rd book, Written in Stone.

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

My first book in the Century Cottage Cozy Mystery series, A Timeless Celebration, was released at the end of October. And there’s a prequel novella, Out of Options, that is due to be released in December. Then I’ll need to give my author a shove and get her slaving away at Book 2 in the series. I can’t keep my fans waiting.

Good for you. Get that author writing.

Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.

Like I’ve said, I let the humans do the talking. You can find my author on her website: http://www.dianneascroft.com and on social media. On Facebook she’s at http://www.facebook.com/DianneAscroftwriter and on Twitter she’s at @DianneAscroft.

Thanks for sharing your author’s links and for the purrfect interview. Best whiskers on your new release and future books of the series. I am also sharing your blog tour and giveaway below.

A small town, a big party, a stolen gift. When an artefact from the Titanic is stolen before her town’s 150th anniversary celebration, it’s up to Lois Stone to catch the thief.

Middle-aged widow Lois has moved from bustling Toronto to tranquil Fenwater and is settling into her new life away from the dangers of the city. Then two events happen that shatter her serenity: her house is burgled and an antique watch belonging to a Titanic survivor is stolen from the local museum. Her best friend, Marge, was responsible for the watch’s safekeeping until its official presentation to the museum at the town’s 150th anniversary party, and its disappearance will jeopardise her job and the museum’s future. Lois won’t let her friend take the blame and the consequences for the theft. She’s determined to find the watch in time to save her best friend’s job, the museum’s future and the town’s 150th anniversary celebration.

And so begins a week of new friends, apple and cinnamon muffins, calico cats, midnight intruders, shadowy caprine companions and more than one person with a reason to steal the watch, set against the backdrop of century houses on leafy residential streets, the swirling melodies of bagpipes, a shimmering heat haze and the burble of cool water.

Sneaky Interviews Mab from Cat Cafe, A Crazy Cat Lady Mystery, by Mollie Hunt

Sneaky here with another pawsome interview of a pet character. Today, it’s my pleasure to cat chat with a fellow cozy mystery cat whose current book, Cat Cafe, is on tour with Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours.

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

Oh, wow! It’s you— It’s really you! (Jumping up and down in kittenish glee) Sneaky, you’re my hero! I’m having a cat fit just to be in your presence. Okay, it’s not just because I’m young, only a little over a year— it’s because, guess what? I’m a Siamese too! Siameeeeese! Just like you!

Oh, but you wanted to know my name. I’m Mab, a purebred lilac point Siamese that my cohabitor character Lynley Cannon rescued from a nefarious breeder when I was just a baby kitten. And oh yeah, my author’s name is Mollie Hunt.

So mice to meet you, Mab, and I’m very honored to be your hero.

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

I wasn’t born when my author wrote the first of her Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, Cats’ Eyes, but I came in with the second, Copy Cats, and have been with Lynley’s clowder ever since. (Cat’s Paw #3, Cat Call #4, and Cat Café #5)

Pawsome. I’m glad you joined the series. I’m sure you’re doing a great job. Siamese cat characters are purrfect fits for cat cozies.

Please tell me more about your series.

Mollie’s Crazy Cat Lady cozy mysteries feature Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. Lynley lives in Portland, Oregon in an old Victorian house with her fluctuating number of cats. Right now our clowder is up to eight. Lynley is retired, and you wouldn’t think she could get herself into so many precarious situations, but it’s her natural, cat-like curiosity that makes her jump paws-first into extraordinary things.

Sounds like you have your paws full with a human character like that.

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

Some of my clan, like Dirty Harry, Little, and Big Red, are real cats who actually live with my author. Then there are Violet and Emilio who are fashioned after cats Mollie has fostered in the past. I, myself, am a fictional creation and proud of it!

I’m fictional, too, although I’m slightly based on Debbie’s cat, Oliver, who has gone to Rainbow Bridge last year.

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

Here is an excerpt from Copy Cats, the very first time Lynley met me. I was stuck in the little kennel where I had spent most of my life so far. She was in trouble too, because the people in the house were very bad men. She had to escape before she got hurt, but there was no way she was going to leave me behind…

“…“What will happen to the kitten?” I said impulsively.

“Take it,” Garrison said. “Take it to your cat shelter and sell it. I’m sure it’ll bring in a few bucks, even without papers.”

I held the small kit whom I had come to think of as Mab, the Faerie Queen from Celtic folklore. (Had she communicated that name to me or had I just made it up?) “Mab,” I said softly, stroking fur softer than silk.

“Huh?” Garrison grunted.

“Nothing,” I said, turning away from him before he could change his mind.

Suddenly through the open window over the kennel, I heard the crunch of gravel. Garrison heard it too. Instantly he tensed, head turned to listen.

“Are you expecting somebody?” I asked.

“You wait here,” was all he said as he bounded up the stairs, two at a time.

I heard his heavy footsteps cross the floor above; a car door slammed, then the babel of voices, loud but not loud enough for me to tell what was going on. I prayed that the visitor was someone who could get me out of that madhouse—a contingent of FBI agents with flack vests and automatic weapons would fit the bill nicely—but I had a feeling that I might not be so lucky.

Someone stomped into the living room, and a sharp, metallic clatter hit the floor. The hubbub continued: voices raised in anger; a high pitched bawl; the trample of feet resonating throughout the old house.

Then I caught a different sound, the wild wail of a Siamese cat. Mab pricked up her ears, the first real interest I’d seen in her since I came. Without thought, I sprinted toward the howl, taking the kitten with me. It was a reflex, with no clear brain-work behind it—very feline, as cats will often run to the cries of their kind. I did have the presence of mind to hang back once I reached the kitchen, not wanting to announce myself until I knew what I was getting into. The wail came again, then another and another—my God, how many cats did they have in there?”

Excellent. Great job, Mabs.

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

Things are beginning to get exciting! Lynley is finally realizing that I’m more than your average kitty cat. You see, being named for a faerie, I have magical powers even beyond those normally possessed by cats. I look forward to helping solve mysteries and keep my cohabitor safe, (and hopefully not causing too much inadvertent mischief while I’m at it, but I am still a kitten at heart, so you can never tell.)

I’m sure you’re in for many more exciting adventures.

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

I, like my fur-sisters and brothers, do not talk human. We do, however, have a great deal of telepathic ability. Trouble is, humans are often too dense to pick up on what we try to project to them. That’s when I, a Siamese, revert to form and make lots of yowly noise.

We Siamese are certainly known for our vocal abilities.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Don’t be afraid to influence the story. My author never knew I was going to turn out to be a magical cat until recently. Surprise!!

Great advice.

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

We just released Cat Café, Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery #5 (A body is discovered on the floor of the cat café, and all the black cats are missing!) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HKQ4TKT last month, so it will be a little while before the following book comes out. The next in line is Cosmic Cat (When a superhero cosplayer falls to his death at a comic con, Lynley is left holding the bag— and a cat!) and a Christmas novella called Cat Noel (Lynley finds a new meaning of Christmas when a wiccan’s familiar is cat-napped before the winter solstice festival and Lynley becomes her only hope.) That brings us to Cat Conundrum (A locked room. A dead man. The cat is the only witness, and he isn’t talking.) which is what Mollie is writing right now. There is also talk of Mollie’s cat scifi-fantasy Cat Summer being published soon by Fire Star Press!

Concatulations! Your author sure is busy. I know Debbie also has lots of ideas for our 5th Cobble Cove mystery adventure and is working on some other secret projects.

Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.

I don’t have time for social media, being far too busy with cat stuff, such as playing, napping, eating, meditating… did I mention playing? But here are my author’s sites. I’m sure she’d purr if your readers stopped by!

A body is discovered on the floor of the cat café, and all the black cats are missing!

Sixty-something cat shelter volunteer Lynley Cannon always finds more trouble than a cat in catnip, but this time it’s not about her. Someone is targeting very senior citizens, and when Bea Landrew, elderly owner of the Blue Cat café turns up dead, Lynley’s mom Carol could be next.

Handsome Detective Devon is looking for a link between the victims when he makes a different sort of connection— with Lynley! It’s been a long time since the cat lady had romance in her life, but while her mom is in danger, the case comes first.

It appears the cat café will go the way of its deceased owner, but Bea’s grandson, a slick Miami businessman, steps in at the last minute. Arthur is not a cat person so why would he bother? Romeo, the big Russian Blue, senses ulterior motives, but who will listen to a cat?

A black cat rescue, an antique photograph, an elaborate payback. Is this killer seeking justice or vengeance? With death as the objective, the results are the same.

About the Author

Mollie Hunt & Tinkerbelle, Registered Pet Partners

Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of the Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, including Cats’ Eyes, Copy Cats, Cat’s Paw, Cat Call, and Cat Café. The series features Portland native Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. Mollie also published a non-cat mystery, Placid River Runs Deep, which delves into murder, obsession, and the challenge of chronic illness in bucolic southwest Washington. Two of her short cat stories have been published in anthologies, one of which, The Dream Spinner, won the prestigious CWA Muse Medallion this year.

Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers’ Colony, Sisters in Crime, Willamette Writers, the Cat Writers’ Association, and the Northwest Independent Writers Association. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like Lynley, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.

Sneaky Interviews RahRah from One Taste Too Many, a Sarah Blair Mystery, by Debra H. Goldstein

Sneaky here with another pawsome interview of a pet character. Today, it’s my pleasure to be cat chatting with a cat whose current book is on tour with Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book.

Meow, there. Please introduce yourself. What is your name and your author’s name?

My name is RahRah and my author’s name is Debra H. Goldstein.

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

I’m debuting in One Taste Too Many. I’ve very excited because One Taste Too Many also is the first of Kensington’s new Sarah Blair cozy mystery series, so you’ll have a chance to meet me and my human, Sarah.

That sounds pawsome. I remember when I met Alicia in A Stone’s Throw, the first book of our Cobble Cove mystery series. I was so excited, and I know you must be, too.

Please give information about your series.

I’m in One Taste Too Many, Kensington’s new Sarah Blair cozy mystery series. Personally, I think they should call it the RahRah cozy mystery series because I’m such an important character in every book. I have taste, good-looks, a masterful personality, and love tuna. Sarah is recently divorced, works as a law firm receptionist, is a little unsure of herself, and is the kind of person whose good china is floral paper plates. I call her a cook of convenience because she either brings take-out in or makes recipes from pre-made ingredients. Cat to cat, I’ll let you in on a secret. if you promise not to tell. The next book in the series will be Two Bites Too Many.

MOL- Meow Out Loud. I like your ideas. The Cobble Cove Cozy mysteries should be Sneaky the Library Cat mysteries, but I can’t complain. At least I have this blog. I like your description of you MC (Main Character), too. My Alicia was a widow when our series started and a librarian. She doesn’t cook much, but there’s lots of bakers in Cobble Cove who make delicious goodies.

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

My author wanted to make sure she got the details about me right, so she asked her friend, Jean, who had a beautiful Siamese cat, Suri, a million questions about things I might do or need. Jean answered every question my author could think of. She also sent Debra a picture of her cat. Sadly, before One Taste Too Many was finished, Suri passed away. In appreciation to Jean and as a lasting tribute to Suri, Debra gave me all of Suri’s physical attributes, intelligence, and playfulness. Look at the cover of One Taste Too Many, I think the Kensington artist caught my likeness perfectly.

Aww. That’s sad. The cat I was based on, Oliver, my author’s Siamese, who passed away last year.

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

“Bill’s dead and, uh, I’m afraid the police think I killed him.”

Sarah Blair stared at the cell phone in her hand. She could not believe the words she had just heard over it. Bill cannot be dead. He was her ex-husband, but like the cat he let her keep after their divorce, she always thought William Taft Blair had nine lives. And what did Emily mean that the police thought she had killed him? No way her twin sister could have done anything like that!

Sure, Emily wielded a cleaver with deft precision in her job as a line cook and she’d threatened Bill a few times over his treatment of Sarah during their marriage and divorce, but Sarah refused to believe Emily could or would murder anyone. …..

Feeling sick to her stomach, she sat down hard on her bed, disturbing her cat’s carefully constructed burrow in the quilt. RahRah stretched one tan paw into the air. Sarah put her hand on his back, but he squirmed away and jumped off the bed. She was tempted to follow him for a quick comforting hug. Instead, she pulled a purple sweater from the remaining pile of clothing on the floor and yanked it over her head.

“RahRah, what could possibly possess Emily to be at the police station without a lawyer? Didn’t she learn anything all those years I made her watch Perry Mason?”

RahRah blinked but didn’t purr.

“So, you agree with me. If Em isn’t a suspect, they would have taken her statement during normal business hours.”

Sarah stuffed her other foot into its shoe and made up her mind. Whether Emily wanted it or not, she wasn’t going to let her sit in jail without representation. She dug her phone from beneath the covers, glanced at the time on its face, and scrolled to her boss’s number.

Hopefully, Harlan was home, alone, and willing to help his receptionist’s sister.

Purrfect scene, and I see what you mean that you’re the main cat character. Great job, RahRah!

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

I like that I dominate Sarah Blair’s world. In so many books, animals are stuck into the story or shunted aside, but my author gives me the respect and dignity of being a real character.

That’s wonderful. I’m sure you’ve earned it.

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

I’m a real cat who meows, purrs, and makes other cat noises. Even though I don’t talk, Sarah knows exactly what I’m thinking and feeling from the sounds I make and the way I strut, shiver, take control of the situation, or cling to her.

I can relate to that. It’s the same with me.

What advice would you give other cat characters? –

Four things: 1) Always be true to yourself; 2) Be loyal to your person; 3) Let your person think he/she is making the decisions even though in reality you are; and, 4) Don’t accept less than the good food.

Excellent advice.

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

One Taste Too Many debuts in print and e-book form on December 18, 2018. It can be pre-ordered now. A large print version is expected in February 2019. The second book in the series, Two Bites Too Many, is scheduled for release in October 2019.

Concatulations!

For culinary challenged Sarah Blair, there’s only one thing scarier than cooking from scratch—murder!

Married at eighteen, divorced at twenty‑eight, Sarah Blair reluctantly swaps her luxury lifestyle for a cramped studio apartment and a law firm receptionist job in the tired hometown she never left. With nothing much to show for the last decade but her feisty Siamese cat, RahRah, and some clumsy domestic skills, she’s the polar opposite of her bubbly twin, Emily—an ambitious chef determined to take her culinary ambitions to the top at a local gourmet restaurant . . .

Sarah knew starting over would be messy. But things fall apart completely when her ex drops dead, seemingly poisoned by Emily’s award-winning rhubarb crisp. Now, with RahRah wanted by the woman who broke up her marriage and Emily wanted by the police for murder, Sarah needs to figure out the right recipe to crack the case before time runs out. Unfortunately, for a gal whose idea of good china is floral paper plates, catching the real killer and living to tell about it could mean facing a fate worse than death—being in the kitchen!

Includes quick and easy recipes!

Sneaky Interviews Tiny Tim from A Midwinter’s Tail, A Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery, by Bethany Blake

Sneaky here with another pawsome interview of a pet character. Today, it’s my pleasure to be chatting with  a dog whose current book is on tour with Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book.

Meow, there. Please introduce yourself, What is your name and your author’s name?

My name is Tiny Tim, and my author’s name is Bethany Blake.

What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre. I’ve appeared in one cozy mystery, A Midwinter’s Tail, and I will make another appearance in the upcoming cozy Something Borrowed, Something Mewed. That one is gonna have a cat, as you might’ve guessed!

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

I just joined the cast and crew of the Lucky Paws Petsitting Mysteries. The books are about an amateur pet sitter named Daphne Templeton who solves mysteries in the quaint town of Sylvan Creek, Pennsylvania. Daphne gets help from her basset hound, Socrates, who is too well-behaved, if you ask me. I don’t know how he does it!

Concatulations on being in that cool-sounding series. I have two dogs in my Cobble Cove mysteries.. Fido is my pal, but I haven’t gotten to know Ruby much yet.

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

I am not based on anybody. I am a one-of-a-kind pug in bah, hum-pug sweater!

Pug? Sounds like bug that I like to eat – MOL (Meow Out Loud)

Can you give us an excerpt from your new book?

Sure thing, Sneaky. Here you go:

A MIDWINTERS TAIL EXCERPT

Moxie Bloom might’ve been caught off guard by the unexpected appearance of an imperious and wealthy, not to mention impeccably dressed and perfectly coiffed, high school bully, who wasn’t supposed to arrive in Sylvan Creek before the Bark the Halls ball, according to Moxie’s rumor mill. Yet I had to give my best friend credit for grace under pressure when CeeCee French rudely brought up cheating with Moxie’s old boyfriend – a topic that most people would’ve been ashamed to mention.

         “How have you been, Celeste?” Moxie asked politely, her voice level but her chin high. She wisely ignored CeeCee’s reference to Mike Cavanaugh, whom Moxie certainly did remember. She forced a smile, trying hard to be kind. “It’s been a long time.”

         CeeCee took a moment to coolly survey the lobby, her angular jaw jutting as she absently stroked her poodle with long, red-tipped fingers. Her toes, encased in sharply pointed, distinctive crimson shoes that contrasted with her black, form-fitting shift, tapped the thick carpet, as if she was already impatient with the whole affair. I supposed that I should’ve been awed by our multi-millionaire classmate, but, to be honest, I couldn’t muster more than mild curiosity and a bit of disappointment to learn that she was still arrogant, and, let’s face it, mean.

“Yes, it has been a while,” CeeCee finally agreed, again looking Moxie and me up and down, her cool gaze taking in Moxie’s vintage outfit and my old barn jacket. “And I find that nothing’s changed.” The corners of her lips twisted upward, and she got a knowing, almost secretive gleam in her dark eyes. “At least, nothing’s changed… yet.”

Interesting.

What advice would you give other dog characters?

Find yourself a good human, like me. I might run around town, but I am always happy to go home for snuggles with my person, Mike Cavanaugh.

I feel that way with two people — Alicia and Laura, both librarians at the Cobble Cove Library where I’m the library cat.

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

A Midwinter’s Tail was released on November 28 and Something Borrowed, Something Mewed will come out June 2019. You can pre-order it now!

Pawsome!

To bark or not to bark . . .

Professional pet sitter Daphne Templeton loves the holidays in Sylvan Creek, Pennsylvania. And nothing gets her into the spirit more than the town’s annual Bark the Halls Ball. The whole community will be there to wag their tails, especially this year’s special guest—Celeste “CeeCee” French, founder of a national chain of pet care franchises, who’s returning home to announce plans for a bright new flagship store.

But not everyone’s celebrating CeeCee’s homecoming. Daphne’s friend Moxie Bloom, owner of Spa and Paw, a unique salon for people and their pets, has plenty to growl about. So when CeeCee is found face down under Sylvan Creek’s town Christmas tree, stabbed with a distinctive pair of professional-grade pet shears, suspicion lands squarely on Moxie. Despite Daphne’s promises to Detective Jonathan Black, she quickly reprises her role as amateur sleuth. Ably assisted by her basset hound sidekick, Socrates, she must hurry to prove her friend’s innocence before a killer barks again . . .

Includes recipes for homemade pet treats!

Like Daphne Templeton, the heroine of her Lucky Paws Mysteries, Bethany holds a Ph.D. and operates a pet sitting business called Barkley’s Premium Pet Care.
