First in an exciting new cozy mystery series!
“Delightful … You don’t have to be a cat lover to appreciate this paranormal cozy’s witty observations, entertaining dialogue, and astute characterizations.” – Publishers Weekly
I’m Clea Simon, author of the rock ‘n’ roll noir WORLD ENOUGH; the Theda Krakow, Dulcie Schwartz, Pru Marlowe, Witch Cats of Cambridge, and Blackie & Care mysteries; and also a handful of nonfiction books. Please browse around and make yourself at home. I’d love to see you at one of my events, and I’m always happy to hear your feedback.
