  1. A local newsman called Telly Stevens!! Only the fabulously NAKED Tart can come up with such a fab character!!!

    And I'm so glad the one and only Hart has found her calling with her cosy mysteries!! Brilliant! Take care

  2. *giggles* This is where I confess my wonky subconscious did that with my naming. Totally unintentional, but yes... absolutely giggle-worthy.

  3. Love Hart! She's hilarious. It sure does take a lot of persistence, this writing thing.

  4. You are a nut, Hart! Now if you can work in nakedness, you'll be set.

  5. Definitely a bit of a nut, but i also see bit of the dark, mysterious Hart, too, so don't give up on it!

  6. Play to your strengths, but that doesn't mean you don't have hidden reservoirs of deep mysteriosness! Congrats on the book!!

  7. One of the things I'm looking forward to in Begonia Bribe is that wicked sense of humor. Congrats again!

  8. I like writing about creeps and villains with humor.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  9. Very fun post! And I disagree about limericks -- 'tis a fine skill for a wee author. My books often contain spells, so I've discovered a use for your skill. :)

  10. Loved the lymrick. I can't write them - poetry of ANY type escapes me. I'm still looking for my perfect genre to write in. You gots lots a skills Hart :) A great sense of humor is very worthy.
