About the author

Mollie Hunt

<p>Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of the <strong>Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery Series</strong> featuring Portland native Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. She has also published a non-cat mystery, <strong>Placid River Runs Deep</strong>, which delves into murder, obsession, and the challenge of chronic illness in bucolic southwest Washington. Two of her short cat stories have been published in anthologies, one of which, <strong>The Dream Spinner</strong>, won the prestigious CWA Muse Medallion this year.</p><p></p><p>Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers&rsquo; Colony, Sisters in Crime, Willamette Writers, the Cat Writers&rsquo; Association, and the Northwest Independent Writers Association. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like Lynley, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.</p>
