Back to Our Younger Self

HEART OF BARKNESS comes out July 2. We’ll be going on tour – dates and venues will be posted soon. Meanwhile, back at the writing ranch, we’ve also been working on the Queenie and Arthur middle-grade series. Book 1, RUFF VS. FLUFF, came out a couple of months ago, and #2, PAWS VS. CLAWS, comes out Sept. 17. Here’s what Kirkus Reviews has to say about it:

“Arthur and Queenie take the stage as dog and cat co-narrators of this funny, deftly plotted mystery. Arthur is a delightfully foggy dog with a big doggie heart—not keen on exercise but very keen on food. For her part, Queenie is the epitome of cat aloofness and self-love . . . The stakes ramp up considerably in this suspenseful and satisfyingly nuanced story. Arthur’s and Queenie’s hilarious personalities as they narrate in alternating chapters give the whole tale a refreshing spin. . . . Fabulous fun.”

    Good morning all.

    HRH,B: Yes, quite the looks Arthur and Queenie are giving each other! :^)

    RIO! I suspected where Friend’s vacation was taking her, and who she would meet and greet! :^) Make sure photos are taken…there can be no Plunderer Calendar without photos! (That is a not so subtle hint to the rest of youse on this here blog). :^) Yarn babies…Yay! I can’t wait to have one! Your Friend can turn that into a business! Make sure she does not accidently mistake your curly pug tail for yarn and snip it off…Yeep!

    Good day to all!

    Hi, guys! Mom just checked the website for the bookstore she used to go to in Houston to see OFA and he’s going to be there July 9th! Sounds like a quick overnight trip is in order. She will be in Houston to stay with a friend while her frIend’s husband has surgery, but thinks the surgery will be before then. This is very exciting! I don’t think she has missed any of his appearances there since he started writing the C&B series.
