In Belated Honor of International Women’s Day (Yesterday)


March 9th, 2021 Posted 7:43 am

A group of women had a big shaved-head dude backed up against the RV. The women were all new to me, but the dude was Itsy Bitsy Litzenberger, a perp at one time and now the junior assistant attendant of the whole shed experience, which just shows you. He saw us coming and called out over the heads of the women.

“Bernie! Help!”

“Hey, Itsy,” Bernie said. “What’s going on?”

The women all wheeled around. We had an old one, a not-quite-so old one, and a younger one than that, although you couldn’t call her young. They all wore yoga pants and gold watches. I sensed trouble.

From Reader’s Digest Select Editions:

We’ve been talking about SE 377, which mails this spring. This volume features one of the more unique books we’ve published in a while, OF MUTTS AND MEN, by Spencer Quinn. What makes this book so unusual? Well, it’s narrated by Chet the Dog, the wise and fiercely loyal canine who works alongside down-on-his-luck PI Bernie Little, investigating crimes. This time around, the pair are digging into the mysterious murder of a local hydrologist…and soon discover the killer has sinister plans for Chet and his favorite human.
Amy and I were both taken with the crime-solving duo, and we’re not alone. Stephen King has called the Chet and Bernie books “without a doubt the most original mystery series currently available.” Want to learn more about Chet The Dog? Check out Chet’s blog or his Facebook page. (Yes, the dog is on social media.) Enjoy!

We drove away, silent for a long time, the car full of Bernie’s thoughts. I loved the feeling of Bernie’s thoughts. They were giants! And the west – which was where we lived, a fact I’d learned quite recently – was a giant land, so we matched up perfectly, Bernie and the land, and me, too, of course. Don’t forget me. I like being in the mix.

Her First Post – But Probably Not Her Last

Hi, I’m Mrs. Publicist’s pushy mom, taking over today. And I’m not at all apologetic about being pushy or being her mom, although I really wish she’d do something about her … well, never mind. For now. Here’s a recent Amazon review of Of Mutts And Men, the latest Chet and Bernie novel. I myself read the series in any old order. My favorite character? Bernie’s mom. It’s not even close.

“Dog lovers delight. Chet is a heck of a dog and writer. I never tire of his viewpoint.”
