Today I am meeting with Detective Wilcox, #2 Missing Food Investigator on the force at Ed’s Farm, to discuss the latest developments in The Case of the Poached Egg.
DW: At 10:00 am on Tuesday Henrietta Hen reported the disappearance of her egg, Penny.
DBJ: Was it an egg-napping?
DW: It’s too soon to tell.
DBJ: Any suspects?
DW: I can’t comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, but I can tell you we plan on speaking with particular animals of interest.
DBJ: Do you think Penny’s disappearance has something to do with the Speggtacular?
DW: We’re exploring all possible angles.
DBJ: Was fowl play involved?
DW: On a farm with over 100 hungry thieving animals, it’s always a possibility.
DBJ: Are those cheese donuts on your desk? I’ve never had one.
DW: Help yourself.
DBJ: Do you know how they came about?
DW: The cheese donuts? Some crazy children’s book author named Robin Newman came up with the idea. Now I’ve got to scramble if I’m going to crack this case. Let’s hope this case finishes sunny side up. Sunny side up, indeed.
Raised in New York and Paris, Robin was a practicing attorney and legal editor, but she now prefers to write about witches, mice, pigs and peacocks. She’s the author of The Case of the Missing Carrot Cake, A Wilcox & Griswold Mystery (Creston Books) and Hildie Bitterpickles Needs Her Sleep (Creston Books). The second book in the Wilcox & Griswold mystery series,
The Case of the Poached Egg (Creston Books), releases April 2017 (but is already available for pre-order at your favorite independent bookstore, Amazon and Barnes & Noble) and No Peacocks! (Sky Pony Press), flies onto bookshelves fall 2017. Robin lives in New York with her husband, son, goldfish, and two spoiled English Cocker Spaniels.
