Character Guest Post
Character Guest Post by Little, significant feline in Cosmic Cat, a Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery #6
My name is Little, and I’m a star. My latest book is Cosmic Cat, penned by my cohabitor Mollie Hunt, but in fact I’ve starred in the entire series from book one, Cats’ Eyes. And why not? I’m wonderful!
As you may have guessed, I’m a cat. A lovely black female cat to be exact. I live with the hero of the series, Lynley Cannon, in a big Victorian house. It’s home to several felines besides myself. Lynley is always bringing in strays and fosters. Not that I mind. She knows who’s boss.
Lynley loves cats. She especially loves us, and I really shouldn’t complain. It’s just that every so often, she gets embroiled in things that have nothing to do with us—things like ferreting out a murderer in order to clear her accused friend. Only recently, she decided to go undercover to infiltrate a tribe of vigilante cosplayers. (Cosplay, as I understand it, means they all dress up as superheroes like in the movies or comic books. And yes, Lynley dressed up too!) They ran a successful raid on a ghastly kitten mill, and it all turned out okay, but she didn’t stop there! She kept putting herself in danger until… Well, I’m sorry—I just can’t talk about it. It’s too scary.
We think she should have left it to the pros. There are police for that, and she even has a young friend who is a humane investigator. We do understand why she can’t pass up a mystery, however. Whether she was born with it or she learned it from us, Lynley has an innate cat-like curiosity. We help her the best we can, but since she doesn’t understand “cat,” we can only do so much.
If push comes to shove, however, we can always claw and bite. I speak for the clowder when I say, no one messes with Lynley on our watch!
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.
