For this week’s Feature Friday Film, I’m sharing the podcast episode of “Once and Future Authors” in which my author, Debbie, talks about the award she won from the Cat Writers’ Association, our Cobble Cove cozy mystery series, .and her upcoming cat books. There are also cameo appearances by her cats, Harry and Hermione. Thanks for listening. Have a Paw-some weekend.
No cat videos this week. Instead, I’m featuring Debbie’s interview on Stephanie Larkin’s podcast “Once and Future Authors.” She talks about cats a lot and the Cat Writers’ Association, but she also explains about something called “genres” that has to do with different types of writing. Check out the interview here. I purrsonally think it’s the cat’s meow.
Meow there. It’s Sneaky with an interview of the real-life kitty of a podcaster. She tells me she has her own pet. Welcome, Pollie Blackwell. What is your pet’s name?
You consider your human a pet. Very interesting.
What are your favorite types of Books?
Anything Independent: mysteries, science fiction, paranormal, and Horror.
Currently getting into Cozy Mysteries. Newest Favorite series: Cobble Cove Mysteries by Debbie De Louise
You’re quite well read, and I’m very glad to see that you’re interested in my series.
What do you do in the studio?
I am here for moral support. Sometimes, my pet likes to record podcasts. He talks to people from all around the world. I try not to bother him too much when he’s recording. I find that the best place to listen is under his desk next to his feet. The acoustics are amazing.
That sounds like a great place to be. I enjoy sitting in the children’s room window of the Cobble Cove library because I can see the birds, squirrels, and other wildlife outside.
How long have you had your pet, Emit Blackwell, and where did you meet?
He found me at a shelter. Emit picked me up and carried me around while he looked at other cats, but I knew I had him in the bag from the moment he saw me. He has been my pet now for 1 year.
Very mice. My author Debbie just adopted two kittens from a shelter, and they are already wrapping her around their paws.
What is your favorite thing about your pet?
He reads stories to me. I like to sit on his lap while he reads some of the newest and established authors. I purr the most when the story gets good.
What do you like most about your role as the studio Cat?
Well, I don’t like to brag, but I pretty much run things around here. The show just couldn’t run without me. I keep Emit in line by making sure he finds the best guests and follows up with the current ones.
Do you like talking cat in your books or just silent ones like me who just meows occasionally?
I like when the animals talk, but non-talking animals are ok too. The message comes across. Although I don’t talk with words, Emit understands me. Sometimes I can simply give him a look and he knows exactly what I need.
You have trained your pet well.
What advice would you give other cats who have podcasters as pets?
Always be supportive of what they do. Most podcasters love talking to people from all around the world. Emit is unique. He helps authors get the recognition they deserve based on the stories they tell.
I’d say that’s purrfect advice, and you should be proud of your pet for helping authors.
Is there anything new happening around the studio?
Emit has been talking a lot about season 3, which starts in January of 2019. He will be including musicians, directors, artists, actors and of course more authors.
Wonderful. I know my author was his last interview of season 2, and she’d love to be back on the show again.
Here’s the link to Debbie’s interview. Your pet did a wonderful job interviewing her.

Excellent. It was great cat chatting with you, Pollie. I picked up some good human-training tips that I will share with my author’s cats Stripey, Harry, and Hermione. Best whiskers to you and Emit on your future podcasts, and please reserve a second spot for Debbie. If you ever interview a cat character, I’d be interested.
