Sneaky, the Cobble Cove Library Cat
Today we’re joined by library cat Sneaky from author Debbie De Louise’s Cobble Cove Mystery Series. Learn more about Sneaky, Debbie, and her books at Sneaky’s blog and Debbie’s website.

What was your life like before your author started pulling your strings?
I was a lost kitty looking for a home. It’s a vague memory for me because I was quite young before I found my way to the Cobble Cove Library where I was taken in as their library cat and later became Alicia’s furry friend.

What’s the one trait you like most about yourself?
I’m flexible, and I don’t mean that I can stretch out my paws and flip on my back. I can play a variety of parts and do justice to them all.

What do you like least about yourself?
I’m too much like a real cat. Even though I help with clues, I don’t talk like some of the other cat sleuths such as Midnight Louie.

What is the strangest thing your author has had you do or had happen to you?
Creating my blog was my own inspiration, but my author was the one who set it up. 

Do you argue with your author? If so, what do you argue about?
I always want juicier parts. I also requested to be on a cover. Debbie finally agreed to that, but it took her three books to do it.

What is your greatest fear?
That my series will end because Debbie will move on to another series. She already has one book of a new cozy started, so it’s a dark shadow hovering over me.

What makes you happy?
When people buy our books and write good reviews about them.

If you could rewrite a part of your story, what would it be? Why?
I’d like to be talking in some scenes or at least thinking and communicating with readers.

Of the other characters in your book, which one bugs you the most? Why?
I won’t say Fido, the dog in the series, because I don’t see him as a threat. He’s too dumb for that. I love Alicia and Laura, the children’s librarian who joins our crew in our second book. I can’t really say that I dislike any of the other characters. Sheila, the library director, was a challenge, but she came around.

Of the other characters in your book, which one would you love to trade places with? Why?
Possibly Sheila. I’d love to be a library director. I’d put in more sunny windows with seats for watching birds and sunbathing, and I’d also schedule a lot more Sneaky story times with the kids.

Tell us a little something about your author. Where can readers find her website/blog?
Debbie is a librarian and that’s why she can write so well about libraries. She also writes other books and stories besides our series. Most of them are mysteries (not necessarily cozies) but some are other genres. You can find out more about her on her website where she writes her own blog, too.

What's next for you?
Debbie has written a fourth Cobble Cove mystery which we both hope will be published soon, but she still has to edit and submit it to her publisher. If you look on YouTube, Debbie has some trailers for our series. The latest one gives a sneak peek to the upcoming book. 

A Stone’s Throw
A Cobble Cove Mystery, Book One

Widowed librarian, Alicia Fairmont, travels to the small upstate town of Cobble Cove, New York, where her dead husband spent part of his childhood. There she meets newspaper publisher, John McKinney, a widower. When she accepts a position at the Cobble Cove Library and becomes romantically involved with John, she learns some secrets that tie him and his father with her husband’s family. As strange events take place, Alicia begins to suspect that the hit and run accident that killed her husband may have been murder and that John is the prime suspect.
