Here's Jazz, Cheryl Harrington's parakeet. 
 Jazz is the inspiration for Sweety Boy,
 Charlotte LaRue's parakeet in Barbara Colley's cozy mystery series.  (
Jazz would love to meet Moishe, but only if he's safe in his cage. 
Barbara says Sweety Boy feels the same.

This is Mr. Guy, the inspiration for "Prozac" in Laura Levine's
Jaine Austen mystery series.  Mr. Guy thinks Moishe's mighty lucky
to be living with a terrific cook like Hannah!

Hannah Swensen mysteries!

Our black calico, Elise, is very sweet and an excellent traveler, just wary of strangers.
Gray and white Spike fools you with his calm and regal look, he's quite a crazy cat.
I'm happy that Hannah's pets play such a big role in the mysteries.

He is now 8 years old. He doesn't care for the Hannah Swensen
books because they detract from the attention he feels he so
richly deserves.
