Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

Meow, there. I have an interview with another pawsome guest, Diesel Harris from Miranda James’ Cat in the Stacks mysteries. It’s great to have you here Diesel. Can you please tell us about your series?

arsenic-and-old-books silence-of-the-library murder-past-due-high-resYes, I am in the series known as “The Cat in the Stacks” but I also make an appearance in the “Southern Ladies” mysteries (that’s in Bless Her Dead Little Heart).

Very mice. I think my author, who is a librarian and cat lover, would enjoy your series. I am a library cat myself, so I am quite familiar with stacks and mysteries, of claws.

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

Lieutenant-Colonel John By, Royal Engineers, 1779-1836

John By [Source: By, John, 1832. Unknown Artist, Kingston Picture Collection, Queen’s University Archives, accession number V23 P-58] John By [Source: By, John, 1832. Unknown Artist, Kingston Picture Collection, Queen’s University Archives, accession number V23 P-58] After a modestly successful military career, John By was given an assignment the he might well have believed would bring him promotion and renown. He came from modest origins and, while competent, had never achieved the heights of success. He is in some ways a typical professional soldier of the Napoleonic Era. He died in obscurity. So why is he remembered today?

It was to be cut 126 miles through a wilderness of forest, swamps, and rocky terrain far enough removed from the Saint Lawrence River to be easily defended in case of invasion by the Americans to the south.
