Wicked Cozy Authors

Edith here, luxuriating in the rebirth of life (finally!) north of Boston – salad greens, flowering shrubs, fresh eggs, book ideas, and so much more. Make sure you read to the end for a special giveaway.

Mulch Ado About Murder releases today! I am delighted that the Local Foods Mysteries has continued through book five. I originally conceived of organic farmer Cameron Flaherty way, way back in 1994. At the time I operated and co-owned the smallest certified organic farm in my county tucked away up here in the northeast corner of Massachusetts.

When A Tine to Live, a Tine to Die finally came out in 2013, it introduced Cam, her great-uncle Albert, the town of Westbury, and the cast of regular characters who have kept Cam company throughout the series. The book opens on June 1, the first day her CSA customers are coming to pick up their shares of the…

Sneaky’s Interview with Sneaky Pie Brown from the Mrs. Murphy Series by Rita Mae Brown

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

I am very honored today to be speaking with the co-author of the Mrs. Murphy series who also shares my name. It’s my pleasure to introduce Sneaky Pie Brown.

Hello there, Sneaky (I think I hear an echo – MOL – Meow Out Loud). Can you please tell me your relationship to Mrs. Murphy, the main character in the series you write with Rita Mae Brown?
Mrs. Murphy is based on me, Sneaky Pie. I have made her just a bit younger than myself.
 
What do you (or Mrs. Murphy) like most about your role in the books?
I like figuring things out using my superior senses.
That must be most rewarding. We cats, character and real, are blessed with wonderful senses.
Are you a talking pet in your books or just a silent one who just meows or occasionally?
I talk. The other animals understand. The humans, not…

Interview with Ling Ling Oddboddy from Elaine Faber’s Mrs. Oddboddy Series

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

Oh, my whiskers! It’s been some time since I’ve had an interview, but I’m very lucky today to have a fellow Siamese cat character here to talk about her series.

What is your name and your author’s name, pretty kitty?

My name is Ling-Ling Odboddy and my ‘person’s’ name is Elaine Faber

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

 I first appeared in Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot and then had a lesser role in Mrs. Odboddy Undercover Courie, both set in hometown California during WWII.

Pawsome. I love historical mysteries even though my books are in present time.

Please give more details about your series.

Mrs. Odboddy is an eccentric elderly woman who fights the war (WWII) from the home front and is determined to end conspiracies and bring Nazi spies to justice. In the sequel, she carries…

My First Adventure is Back in Print

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

Wow, Meow! I am so excited my tail is swishing. My first Cobble Cove adventure in which I was introduced is back in print. Although my role in that one didn’t change much, there is an additional chapter for John and Alicia (put your paws over your eyes if you don’t want to see the spoiler below).

I guess I could’ve predicted that especially after their cozy picnic. They could’ve brought me. Maybe I would’ve liked a taste of that famous PB&J recipe that John and Mac are so famous for making.

Of claws, there was a nice teaser created featuring me.

Although I’m not in the book trailer:

However, the third book, coming this spring, will feature me on the cover. The second one has Alicia.

 

For those who missed the first book or would like to read the revised and improved edition, here’s the blurb:

Widowed librarian Alicia…

Sneaky Interviews Diesel from the Cat in the Stacks Mysteries by Miranda James

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.

The inspiration for my character was a cat who belonged to the late Barbara Mertz (better known to readers as Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Michaels). Her Maine Coon, whom Miranda…
