Good day gangsters! I often get asked where I get my ideas from. And I always answer, “real life.” A couple of examples:
I had to take Star to the vet on Saturday. Phew. It was a two-person military operation. We got her some medicine to put in her food and when we got home, we all took the rest of the day off.
I'm working on another Annabelle. Here's some of Mike's lines from it:
“Stag do? If this murderer isn’t caught by then, I can’t have a stag do. What would it look like to the villagers? To my men? No parties for me when other people are sacrificing and working hard. No indeed.”
The scene in Killer at the Cult where Annabelle takes Biscuit to the vet was inspired by my experiences with Star. Mike's lines were also inspired by a real-world happening. Can you guess which one?
I had such a good reaction to the online jigsaws I sent your way (The Case of Sampson's Leap cover reveal being one) that I went another step.

Not too pleased with Mum. She put me in a box. I didn't want to get in, but she insisted. “It was for my own good,” she said. Then she put me in another bigger box that moved! I didn't like that either. Eventually, she took me out and lots of people poked me and put pink things around my legs.
After all that fuss, I was glad to get back in the small box and I didn't even complain when we got in the bigger, moving box because I knew we were going home. Now my food tastes a bit funny, but not too bad, and I feel all nice and snoozy.
