Mattie Mitchell: That darn near perfect amateur sleuth

Hi, all you Mattie followers.  Hope you didn’t think I had just up and disappeared from the face of the planet.  I haven’t, I assure you.  I’ve been doing some serious thinking about the next situation my slave-driver creator, Mary Berger, has gotten me into.  (What will that woman think of next?)

front-cover-the-messageHere’s a little teaser: Mary has Clare and me working at a local thrift shop, of all places.  People drop in and people drop out—all bringing along items for our inventory, or buying things to take home.  That is, until one mysterious gal, mysterious as in ‘oddball,’ drops by the shop looking for a computer she dropped off. Now she wants the darned thing back.  Her suspicious actions are all it takes to send my curiosity off the Richter scale.  So, when I discover what the woman’s been up to with an online predator who knows where she lives, well . . . it’s too much for yours truly, and I have to poke my nose in—er—I mean get involved.  Actually, I’d better stop right now before I give away the entire plot.

Keep checking here for future updates of Clare’s and my antics. It’s all in the latest book, The Message. You may want to check out my Amazon author page for all my books at:

I’d like to leave you with this thought: Have a good laugh today.  They say every time you laugh, you add fifteen minutes to your life span.  If that’s true, Clare and I should easily make it to 100!



P.S. The Message is available in paperback and Kindle through, as well as in paperback and Nook editions through Barnes & Noble. Order your copy today! (Also a great gift idea for Christmas.)

About mattiesmysteries

My book-writing history includes self-publishing three Mattie Mitchell Women's Humor Cozy mysteries. The most recent, "The Message," won the Pinnacle Award for Best in Category, Autumn - 2015. Mattie and wacky pal, Clare, two middle-aged "babes" keep me busy sharing their hilarious plots and plans, which leaves me little time for my mud-slinging pottery hobby. That reminds me―one of my future installments dubbed, "Mud-Pie Mayhem," will be forthcoming soon. Stay tuned!
