Long before Bad Boy Beat was even a dream, I wrote a fun little mystery about cats – specifically about a young woman who meets a possible cat hoarder – a “crazy cat lady” – and who, when that poor older woman is killed must figure out not only who killed her but what to do with all those cats. That funny little story became my first mystery, Mew is for Murder, and it was published by Poisoned Pen Press.

Tonight at 7 p.m. EST (4 p.m. Mountain Time), I’ll be chatting with Barbara Peters, who was the editor of Poisoned Pen Press while I was there. She’s now reverted to her original post, as the owner of the esteemed Poisoned Pen bookstore in Scottsdale, Arizona, a mystery-specializing megastore where she hosts a ton of great book events. Tonight, I’ll get to chat with her again about Bad Boy Beat and all things mystery virtually. If you’d care to join us, you can on either the bookstore’s website, its Facebook page, or its Youtube channel – please feel free to ask your own questions too! (You can also help this wonderful independent bookstore stay in business by buying Bad Boy Beat directly from them here.)
