What’s In A Name?


May 15th, 2017 Posted 8:33 am

Mrs. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month, so time for What’s In A Name, where Spence discusses a character name from the Chet and Bernie series.

Spencer Quinn: How about we throw a curveball and go for a name from the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series?

Mrs. P: I understand that adults can read them too.

SQ: But only if they have fake ID. One of the important supporting characters – supporting in a highly negative way – in BOW WOW, coming May 30 – is a bull shark. I had some experience with bull sharks during my spearfishing days long ago in the Bahamas. And at last I’m getting some mileage out of it!

Mrs. P: So the bull shark in BOW WOW has a name?

SQ: Mr. Nice Guy. It seemed right.

Mrs. P: Does Bowser encounter Mr. Nice Guy one on one?

SQ: No spoilers!

Mrs. P: Thanks, Spence! See you next month for more of What’s In A Name!



BOW WOW: Sneak Peek


May 2nd, 2017 Posted 8:32 am

(Coming in 28 days. This is from page one. BOW WOW is 3rd in the Bowser and Birdie middle-school series. Adults can read them, but fake ID required.)

The humans in our family all turned to me: Birdie, Mama, Grammy. “What the heck is that blasted barking about?” Grammy said.

Someone was barking? I listened my hardest, heard no barking. This was a strange day already and it had hardly even started.

“Maybe he’s upset that you’re leaving, Mama,” Birdie said.

Mama bent down, gave me a pat. “Is that it, Bowser? Upset that I’m leaving?”

“Bull puckey,” said Grammy. “How would he even know you’re leaving?”

Whoa! Mistakes were going by so fast I could hardly keep up.
