My Editor’s Pet Pics!

Posted May 2 2014

pe promo ninja and phantom pe promo ninja4 These adorable dogs belong to my brilliant editor, Holly Ingraham! The white one is Ninja, and the black one is Phantom. Holly is convinced Ninja was human in a former life – he likes to lay his head on pillows, huffs at you when he’s annoyed, and puts himself to bed at 9:30pm every day. Holly says that the older he gets, the more of a social butterfly he becomes when it comes to visitors, but getting a kiss from Ninja takes a special kind of person. I’m betting Holly is special enough to warrant lots of kisses. ; )

Phantom is ALL dog. He looks like a pony when he runs, has his own huge toy basket that he doesn’t like to share from, and brings a “teddy bone” to bed every night. He has a loud bark, but is terrified of everything, especially new people. He gives awkward kisses (kind of just sets his tongue on you for a few seconds).  I bet Holly gets lots of those awkward kisses, too!

 Ninja and Phantom are best friends and get upset if they are separated. They like to chase after/bark at cats, neighborhood dogs and the occasional groundhog.  

 They make me feel like singing”Ebony and Ivory.” Cuties!pe promo ninja3pe promo ninja2


  1. They are such cute babies! I especially love the picture of Ninja under the covers. What great companions dogs are. I write in a recliner with my bichon-poo between my feet, my sheltie stretched out on the floor in front of the chair, and my cat on the armrest.

      Pets are great company for people like us who work from home, aren’t they? Sounds like you’ve got a nice foot warmer. : )

Wonderful! So glad she enjoyed it! I hope she is doing well! Book #2 will be called The Proof is in the Poison. Cover and release date coming soon! It should release around the same date next year, so my best guess is early July or late June. Thanks so much for contacting me! You made my day!

I gave this book to a friend to read while she convalesced. She is loving it and now desperate for #2! Looks as if you may not have published it yet? ? Any thoughts on when it will be available??

Hello Diane Kelly, I just started the Moon Shack murder book. I am all ready loving it, but I have enjoyed everyone of your books so far that I have read, which are the Death and Taxes, and Paw and Order books, I look forward to many more.
