Crime Cats Mystery Club in the Newspaper!

Journalist/photographer Kevin Parks wrote a wonderful article about the Crime Cats Mystery Club winning the OELMA Literacy Leader Award. The article even features a photo of me with my favorite Cat Welfare resident, Sherbet.


My thanks and gratitude to the board, staff, and volunteers at Cat Welfare for all that they do—including making the Mystery Club so fun; to Susan Yutzey for nominating the CCMC; to the OELMA award committee; to the Mystery Club readers who have made such a difference in lives of the homeless cats at Cat Welfare; and to Mr. Parks for his enduring support of my literary and philanthropic efforts!

"Heavy Metal Pizza Party" Release Party!

My sincere thanks to all came out yesterday to Wholly Craft to celebrate the release of the first Crime Cats Suspicious Activity Book, Heavy Metal Pizza Party. It's always an amazing pleasure to meet readers and families and share with them my latest creation.

And a huge shout out to the staff of Wholly Craft for hosting, decorating, and playing old-school Judas Priest, and to Gatto's Pizza–Orville Dusenbury's favorite—for serving up a couple of amazing pies for the occasion. I had great time and I want you all to know that I am so very thankful for the support Columbus has shown Crime Cats.

If you haven't picked up a copy of Heavy Metal Pizza Party yet, you can buy a signed copy at any of my signing event (check my schedule here) or by purchasing from most any of my retail partners—but call before you drive. The books sell out quickly!
