Carrie Kennersly tries to help her veterinarian boyfriend when he’s under suspicion of murder...Is he a keeper, or should she let him go off-leash for good?
As a technician for a local vet and the owner of the Barkery & Biscuits dog bakery, Carrie Kennersly is excited to host a rescue animal adoption event. She’s also excited to be in a relationship with veterinarian Dr. Reed Storme, despite his pleas for her to butt out of the murder cases she keeps finding herself involved with. Yet when Reed is accused of killing his former veterinary colleague, he seems a lot more agreeable to having amateur detective Carrie butt back in. Can Carrie clear Reed, or does she care too much for a killer?
Includes recipes for dog treats and people treats!

Interview with Linda O. Johnston

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reins of the story?

I'm always willing to listen to my characters, even though I start out knowing what's likely to happen next.  Sometimes they make suggestions, or even give me orders, so my thoughts on whodunit or other important factors change.  I enjoy interacting with my characters!

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.

Because I wrote it!  Okay, I realize that's not enough.  But one of the most important things about PICK AND CHEWS is that it involves dogs, as does everything I write these days.

PICK AND CHEWS is a cozy mystery, and in it the romantic interest of protagonist Carrie Kennersly is the main suspect, so of course she gets involved.  PICK AND CHEWS centers around a very special barkery where Carrie bakes and sells the very healthful dog treats she has developed as a veterinary technician.  And the book contains recipes for both a human treat and a dog treat.

Have you written any other books that are not published?

Many years ago, I started writing but it took me a while to get published.  I was the traditional writer with a dozen published novels waiting under the bed.  And yes, in those days, I printed out all the manuscripts so they were under the bed--or at least in boxes in my storeroom.

Pen or type writer or computer?

Today? Computer, of course--despite how non-techie I am.  Where I worked as a lawyer a long time ago I'd already started learning how to use computers so I was the first attorney in my law department to adopt one for my own use--rather than have my secretary do it all.  I still make a lot of notes, though, with pen on notecards to remind me what comes next.

Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Yes--read me!  and Come visit my website, and friend me on Facebook.  I also blog every Wednesday at Killer Hobbies, on the 6th of each month at A Slice of Orange, on the 18th of each month at Killer Characters, and on the first Monday of each month at Under Cover of Midnight, as well as periodically on the Writers in Residence blog.
