Lynley Cannon: Cosmic Cat, a Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery #6, by Mollie Hunt
My name is Lynley Cannon, and I’m often called a crazy cat lady, but I’m not quite crazy yet— I swear. Just because I have several cats in my care, volunteer at a cat shelter, and foster sick cats in my home doesn’t make me crazy. In fact, my friends would think that all quite sane. Of course, my friends are cat people too.
I am writing this with a cat on my lap. I’m just glad he’s not on my keyboard. His name is Dirty Harry, and I couldn’t do it without him. I suppose he is my muse. I need one, since blogging is not my specialty. In my sixty-some years, I’ve done a lot of things, but writing has not been one of them.
I was a hippie in my youth, then married— (now, not). I have a daughter and granddaughter. My daughter and I have little in common, but my granddaughter Seleia is amazing. We just celebrated her eighteenth birthday. My, they grow up so quickly!
Since I retired, I’ve enjoyed every minute of my freedom. I’m tracing my Scottish ancestry and reading a lot. I go to tea with friends, try to stay fit with walks and self-defense classes, but a good amount of time is spent volunteering at Friends of Felines cat shelter. I’ve always loved cats, their special ways, their gentle touch, their ability to communicate, at least with me.
There is nothing— I repeat, nothing— in my quiet life that can account for all the trouble that seems to find me. Whether on an art retreat at an animal sanctuary (Cat’s Paw) or at a comic-con (Cosmic Cat), murder ensues. Sometimes I feel like the Jessica Fletcher of Portland, Oregon. Maybe I’m hexed, like the movie set where I was handler for two actor cats (Cat Call)—though that turned out to be something completely different...
No, there is no reason for it, except when there is a cat involved. I can’t stand to see an animal misused, such as those poor victims of the cat counterfeiting ring (Copy Cats). That’s where my dear friend Special Agent Denny Paris comes in. He’s an animal cop, and when the kit hits the fan, he’s there to save me. He’s one of my best friends. If only he weren’t half my age!
So Thank you, Laura, for inviting me to your blogsite. That’s me in a nutshell: quiet, hard-working, goodhearted, optimistic, and maybe just a little bit crazy for cats.
About Mollie Hunt
Mollie Hunt: Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer.
Mollie is the author of THE CRAZY CAT LADY COZY MYSTERY SERIES, featuring Portlander Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip.
The 3rd in the series, CAT’S PAW, was a finalist for the 2016 Mystery & Mayhem Book Award, and the 5th, CAT CAFÉ, won the World’s Best Cat Litter-ary Award in 2019.
Mollie’s sci-fantasy, CAT SUMMER (Fire Star Press) is the first in her CAT SEASONS TETRALOGY where cats save the world from an evil older than history—twice!
Mollie also published a non-cat mystery, PLACID RIVER RUNS DEEP, which delves into murder, obsession, and the challenge of chronic illness in bucolic southwest Washington.
Two of her short cat stories have been published in anthologies, one of which, THE DREAM SPINNER, won the prestigious CWA Muse Medallion. She has a little book of Cat Poems as well.
Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers’ Colony, Sisters in Crime, Willamette Writers, the Cat Writers’ Association, and NIWA. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like Lynley, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.
