Congratulations to our writers for the following publications:

Teresa Inge Talks Mutt Mysteries

An Interview with Shari Randall

Please welcome Teresa Inge to Writers Who Kill!

Teresa, along with Jayne Ormerod, Heather Weidner, and Rosie Shoemaker has put together a fun pet-themed anthology, To Fetch a Thief. These four "tails" of theft and murder are just the beginning of the future Mutt Mysteries series.

What a great idea for an anthology! How did the book come about? The four of us met over a glass of wine in Williamsburg Winery to discuss our next project. We came up with the idea to write a “dogvella” which quickly turned into dog mysteries. From there came the Mutt Mysteries series. 

How did the four of you meet? We met through Sisters in Crime. Heather and Rosie are members of the Central Virginia chapter in Richmond and Jayne and I are members of the Mysteries by the Sea chapter in Chesapeake, Va.

Please give us a teaser for your story. Catt Ramsey, owner of the Woof-Pack dog walkers is recruited to recover a stolen necklace. But when she and her pups Cagney and Lacey go looking, they find much more than they bargained for...

I'm assuming that you all are pet lovers. Please tell us about your pets. We all have pets and support animals. Jayne’s dogs are rescues Tiller and Scout. Heather’s dogs are Jack Russell Terriers Disney and Riley. My dogs are Luke and Lena, mixed shepherd breeds and also named after my husband’s grandparents. And Rosie has a family dog named Current. 

How long have you been writing? I started writing poetry when I was young then wrote professional business articles and combined my love of reading mysteries with writing mysteries.  

Teresa Inge grew up in North Carolina reading Nancy Drew mysteries. Today, she doesn’t carry a rod like her idol, but she hot rods. She assists two busy executives and is president of the Sisters in Crime Mysteries by the Sea Chapter. Teresa is the author of “Shopping for Murder,” and “Guide to Murder” in Virginia is for Mysteries, “Fishing for Murder” in the FishNets anthology, and has coordinated other anthologies.

Thank you for visiting Writers Who Kill, Teresa! If you have a question for Teresa, feel free to comment. Readers can find a copy of To Fetch a Thief here.

Sounds like a lot of fun. My husband and I don’t have dogs, but we get to do a lot of pet sitting for our daughters’s dogs—a Rhodesian ridgeback, a cocker spaniel, and a lab/boxer blend. We’ve even kept all three at one time, which was quite a challenge.

Margaret S. Hamilton said...

Congratulations on your new release! What a great idea. Two black standard poodles running laps through the house.

Kait said...

Anything born over wine has to be good! Right now I'm well catted, but I've been known to parent a Sheltie and a German Shorthaired Pointer. Next up on the puppy brigade? A German Shepherd - a rescue of course as are all my critters.

Looking forward to reading TO FETCH A THIEF.

My Maltese Cloud and I salute your success! Congrats!

Warren Bull said...

Fantastic fun.

I'd love to read this book. I've had a lot of collies and one German shepherd over the years.Right now I have a 60 pound tri-color collie, Maggie, who is the sweetest dog I've ever had. She has only growled once and that was when I was house sitting with a little obnoxious yourky who wouldn't leave her alone. After she growled he left her alone. Another time my granddaughter was house sitting with her when I went on vacation. She came around the corner and saw her two year old daughter pulling Maggie's tongue out to see how long it was since collies have long noses. She patiently allowed that.

Stories with pets are always fun! This sounds like a great project.

Down to one old mixed breed and five cats here. Rescues, all of them.
