January Magazine Interviews Mystery Author Clea Simon

Probable Claws by Clea Simon

January Magazine today published an author snapshot of, and interview with, Clea Simon, who writes the Theda Krakow mysteries of which the most recent, Probable Claws, the fourth in the series, was published in April by Poisoned Pen Press. Theda's cat, Musetta, frequently plays a prominent role in her books.

In the article, Simon says that despite the punny titles and the strong cat connections, the cats in her books don’t talk. In fact, she has referred to the books featuring Theda and Musetta as “kitty noir,” something she says with a smile but is only half-joking about.

Simon also talks about her new series, the first book of which, Shades of Grey, is scheduled for publication in September by Severn House. She says it is "slightly paranormal", but doesn't go on to explain what exactly that means!

We've had the pleasure of reviewing two of Simon's mysteries, Cries and Whiskers and Probable Claws, both of which can be found on Mysterious Reviews.

  1. Hi folks,
    By way of an explanation: there may or may not be a ghost in "The Shades of Grey," and the heroine's loopy mother may or may not have psychic dreams. But I'm hoping that the book works as a traditional mystery, no matter what you believe. Hence, "slightly paranormal." You can read an excerpt on my site, if you're curious.
    - Clea

  2. Thanks Clea for stopping by and letting us know an excerpt of your new "slightly paranormal" book is available on your site!
