Dear Sophie,

Dear Sophie,

You are in the New York Times today. (The FREAKIN' NEW YORK TIMES.) We couldn't be more ridiculously, out-of-our-minds proud of you for all your recent accomplishments.

Love,
the Pens


The humor is decidedly morbid in Sophie Littlefield’s down-home mysteries about a female vigilante who extends a helping (if occasionally bloody) hand to battered women in rural Missouri. Stella Hardesty, who owns a sewing machine repair and supply shop that she inherited from her late husband, doesn’t look dangerous, although everyone in town knows about the wrench she was clutching when the sheriff discovered her husband’s body.

In A BAD DAY FOR PRETTY (Thomas Dunne /Minotaur, $24.99), Stella is itching to get on with her re-education of the “no-good, wife-smacking, covenant¬-breaking” men of Sawyer County. But first she has to keep one of her successfully reclaimed subjects from being locked up for the murder of an unknown woman whose mummified body surfaces when a tornado rips through the fairgrounds. And just when another tornado is heading for town.


(P.S. She will be embarrassed when she sees this. But what are friends for? Release date: June 8th!)

oh, oh, OH!!! You know how we were talking about how wonderful it is to have found each other....this is why! To have someone to celebrate the ups with...and of course to have our backs during the "downs". The lovely moments wouldn't be anywhere near as sparkly without all of you guys.

Wahoo!!! Go, Sophie! World domination starts in stolen hours writing in weird places with a dazed look in your eyes when a real person intrudes. You know it's working when your book gets a mention in the NYT Book Review. :)
