Still, Georgie loves working at the “Cat Factory,” but when someone frames her for murder more than her job is at stake. Who’s out to get Georgie? Can she and the handsome detective, Jack Wheeler, figure it out before there’s more trouble at Marvelous Marley World? Read Murder at Catmmando Mountain, meet Georgie, Jack, and Georgie’s beloved Siamese cat, Miles, to find out whodunit.

Here is an excerpt from, Murder at Catmmando Mountain

1 Purrfect Murder 

“It’s a marvelous world…a MARVELOUS MARLEY world!”

Doing PR—public relations—for a cat isn’t easy. Working in any capacity for a very famous cartoon cat might sound like a dream job, but it’s not. The Furry Caped Avenger, Catmmando Tom, may be a superhero, but his megalomaniacal creator is an altogether different kind of character. Maximillian Marley loves animals. People, not so much, even though they’re the lifeblood of Marley’s pastoral theme park, Arcadia. It’s the two-legged visitors that pay the $100 admission fee for adults and $50 for children under twelve.

On occasion, their pets are welcome, too. All of the enchantment produced by other divisions of Marvelous Marley World Enterprises relies on hard-earned cash people dole out. That includes visits to the Marvelous Marley World Resorts, as well as purchases of videos, movies, and merchandise featuring Marvelous Marley World characters.

As I reviewed our current PR agenda, I straightened my posture to shoulder the burden. Super cat cartoons, movies, and merchandise had made Max Marley very wealthy. A host of animated animal characters had followed on the furry heels of Catmmando Tom’s acclaim. A few human characters, often cast in supporting roles, were included in the projects produced at Marvelous Max Studios. The theme parks and resorts were next. The first Arcadia was built here in Orange County, California, near our World Headquarters. Each iconic character has a special place in Arcadia, a fantasyland of dreams and adventures, built around relationships between super pets and their owners. In Max Marley’s imagination, it wasn’t always clear who owned whom, however. Most of the time his stories involved super pets rescuing their beloved humans and endangered animals from ne’er-do-wells of one species or another.

  1. What an appealing cover. It made me want to open up the book right away. Sounds like an original plot, Anna.

      Thanks so much! I have to admit that I do lift bits and pieces from my stint working for the ‘mouse’ at Mickey’s place in Orlando. Like my character, Georgie Shaw, I worked as a chef, courtesy of Walt Disney World University training where I earned a real Mickey Mouse diploma. Cheers! Anna

  2. You’re so welcome, Anna. It’s such fun hosting you and your books. You always seem to have something new and different in your stories. Murder at Catmmando Mountain looks like a fun read. It’s on my TBR list.
