Posing Pets!

Posted Jan 10 2019

Those of you familiar with my Paw Enforcement series have enjoyed the antics of Brigit, Officer Megan Luz’s clever K-9 crime-solving partner. In my upcoming House Flipper series, you’ll meet Sawdust, a sweet and fluffy feline with a unique skill for digging up dead bodies and leading carpenter Whitney Whitaker to critical clues.

As an animal lover (current count: 3 dogs + 4 cats), I have a blast writing the chapters from the dog’s and cat’s points of view. While the animals don’t talk, we get a glimpse into what’s going on in those furry heads of theirs.

Let’s do some mind-reading, shall we?

Use the comments link below to caption one of these pet photos (just indicate which # in your submission). On release day January 29th, I’ll pick one lucky winner at random to receive a copy of Dead as a Door Knocker (book #1 in the House Flipper series) and this adorable plush Sawdust!

    Finished “Dead as a Door Knocker.” As an extreme cat lover, loved Sawdust! So looking forward to “Dead in the Doorway”.

    1. Diane Kelly says:

      So glad you enjoyed it!

  17. "G" Headen says:

    Need help with the Tax Series…Mistletoe Mayhem, Little Green Men and Pecan Pie are not to be found. Do you have a site I can buy? Are they “extras” that don’t have to be read in order with the rest…HELP! Thanks!

    1. Diane Kelly says:

      Sorry! Just found this message. Mistletoe Mayhem and Pecan Pie are novellas (shorter stories) that were released only as e-books, but they are side stories that do not have to be read in order to keep up with the main stories. Love, Luck, & Little Green Men is available in paperback on the Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. It’s a very different story than my usual thing – a little bit of fantasy and a lot of romance. Thanks for your interest in my books!

Thank you, Cindy, Kathy, Suzanne and Cheryl!
  Diane Kelly
I enjoyed showing the good things about middle age with this new character. I'm so glad you enjoy Kerrin's reviews and site! I do, too.
  Diane Kelly
Wonderful! Same here. I trust her opinion. She's very open-minded and fair.
  Cheryl Calebro
Thank you for the sharing Kerrin! I really love reading her reviews and quite often add the books to my ever growing pile of books to read.
  Suzanne
What a lovely piece. I have loved Kerrin’s blog/reviews and have only ‘known’ her online for a short while, but she has been one of the only blog reviewers I check religiously. Your book sounds so much fun, and I’m glad the protagonist is closer to my age and not so young as they usually are . I will somehow see if I can read it in Australia. Thanks for the fab interview!! I love the pics from the catch up with Kerrin’s daughter. The landscape is beautiful.
