Meows from Mudpie!
My Sunday Selfie this week is dedicated to the memory of a very special friend, author Joyce Lavene.
You may remember that over the summer Mommy entered a contest by Joyce and her husband Jim to name the pet characters in their upcoming book A Dickens of a Murder.

Joyce even said to us, "How could I name any tortie without thinking of Truffles?"
Tragically, Joyce passed away suddenly on Tuesday and left the cozy mystery community heartbroken and in shock.
Yesterday we received our review copy of A Dickens of a Murder:

We love you, Joyce...we miss you...and we will never, ever forget you.
