20 Questions with Authors : Arlene Kay

I had the pleasure of attending a book event with Arlene Kay.  This event included panels and contests..... one contest where I had to call out Arlene for "giving away the answer to a question" and since then we have had a fun relationship.  If you have ever met her, you know what I am talking about.  If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting her yet, I highly encourage you to try to attend an event that she is participatiung in.....just be careful if there are any contests involved.

Arlene books are :

Death by Dog Show ( Book 1 in the A Creature Comforts Mystery series )
Homicide by Horse Show ( Book 2 in the A Creature Comforts Mystery series )
Swann Dive ( Book 1 in the The Boston Uncommons Mystery series )
Mantrap ( Book 2 in the The Boston Uncommons Mystery series )
Gilt  ( Book 3 in the The Boston Uncommons Mystery series )
Die Laughing
The Abacus Prize  ( Book 1 in the Grace Quinn Chronicles )
