Truffles' Fiction Debut #TBT

Meows from Mudpie!

Every now and then I take a little time to go through old blog posts from before I came to live here, just to see what Mommy's life was like without me. (Unimaginable, I know.) I recently stumbled upon something really cool that newer readers to our blog not might know about.

Truffles was eager to see her name in print!

Three years ago this month Truffles made her fiction debut in a cozy mystery called Ghostly Paws, the first book in the Mystic Notch mystery series by Leighann Dobbs. The author had let Mommy know ahead of time that in the book there was a gang of cats that played a small role and one was a tortie that she named Truffles! It was such a surprise and great honor for Mommy and Truffles, and they loved the book as a whole too!


Ghostly Paws was just the beginning...Truffles also went on to star in A Dickens of  Murder by Joyce and Jim Lavene and Ingrid King's love letter to torties, Tortitude. All three books have a cherished place on our bookshelf.

Hey authors!!! Mudpie is a pawsome name too! Just sayin'...

How awesome that Truffles had a role in a book! I agree, you should be in one too, Mudpie.

Well, this gem just landed a spot in my Kindle library. You sure are helping me fill up my to-read list with fun tales! And you are quite right, Mudpie sure would fit purrfectly within the pages of a book...

I had forgotten that Truffles showed up in Ghostly Paws! Don't worry, Mudpie, with your name and purrsonality, you're bound to make it into print someday.

I am glad Angel Truffles got to be in so many books. I am sure you will get in one too- maybe there will be a Tortitude 2 or maybe your Mom could write one :)
