May we present the cover of the first Queenie and Arthur novel? (Now available for preorder. Middle-grade, so adults unaccompanied by a minor will need fake ID.)

What’s In A Name?

Mrs. Publicist: Welcome – a day late – to our regular monthly feature, where the writer discusses a character name from one of his books. Hi, Pete – or Spence, as some think of you – I know you have a new series coming, told from alternating points of view, one being that of Arthur, a dog, and the other that of Queenie, a … cat? Is that true?

Peter Abrahams: If anything is, yes, it’s true. For what it’s worth, I don’t think I’ve ever had quite as much fun writing a book as I did on RUFF VS. FLUFF, volume one of the new Queenie and Arthur series.

Mrs. P: Middle-grade but adults with fake ID can read them, too?

Pete: According to a 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court.

Mrs. P: You’ve never done cat narration before.

Pete: So therefore – why not?

Mrs. P: You’ve said you can’t write a character until you have the exact right name. How long did it take to come up with Queenie?

Pete: I was lucky. The name was the very first thing that came to me, after the idea for the book itself. Like the first car on the train, after the engine.

Mrs. P: Thanks, Pete! See you next month for another edition of What’s In A Name. But I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t mention that RUFF VS. FLUFF by Spencer Quinn is now available for pre-order from all the usual places. Two unreliable narrators for the price of one!
