Julie Seedorf – Granny Pins a Pilferer
This week, I’m welcoming author, Julie Seedorf
Julie Seedorf is a Minnesotan. She calls dinner—supper and lunch—dinner. She has had many careers over her lifetime, but her favorite career was that of mother to her children. In later life she became a computer technician, opening her own business. In 2012 Julie signed a contract with Cozy Cat Press for her Fuchsia Minnesota Series. Books included in that series are Granny Hooks a Crook, Granny Skewers A Scoundrel, Granny Snows A Sneak and Granny Forks A Fugitive and Granny Pins A Pilferer. Closing her computer business in January 2014, Julie transitioned to becoming a full-time writer adding free-lance work for various newspapers, along with continuing her column Something About Nothing, which is now in book form in a book of the same name released in early 2015. Her children’s series, Granny’s In Trouble give her grandkids a hint of the young Grandma underneath the wrinkles. Her books are light and fluffy and highlight the fact in the midst of life we have to find the humor in bad situations to keep us going. “We all take ourselves too seriously, and we need to have a little fun.” Julie secretly yearns to be like the Granny characters in her books. In February 2016 the first book in the Brilliant Minnesota Series was released titled the Penderghast Puzzle Protectors. She also is part of a group mystery by Cozy Cat Press Authors titled Chasing the Codex. Julie’s serious side is revealed in a story included in the Anthology; We Go On – Anthology for Veterans where the proceeds go to Veteran’s Charities. Enjoy the moments; they may carry you through a lifetime.
Granny Pins A Pilferer
Granny is at it again! When Granny accompanies her friend Mavis to the Next To The Last Resting Place nursing home to visit Mavis’ sister, Beulah, both women are shocked to find the new resident dead. Granny, being the amateur detective she is, suspects foul play, and soon she and her entire family concoct a plan to investigate possible shady doings at the nursing home. Granny will enter the home incognito and attempt to determine how Beulah met her suspicious demise. All this happens while Granny’s new husband Silas is entangled in his own dangerous mess. Someone has just blown up his house and Silas (a former detective) is out to discover the culprit, even as he worries about Granny’s safety in the home. As more nursing home residents fall victim to a strange and sudden “memory loss virus,” Granny engages the aid of her friends to get to the bottom of what turns out to be a very complex and complicated plot.
Here is an excerpt from, Granny Pins a Pilferer
Granny, otherwise known as Hermiony Vidalia Criony Fiddlestadt, shut the door to her bedroom and sat down on her bed, taking a short amount of alone time before she rejoined the others to go to the Pink Percolator. How had all this happened? She’d gone from living alone, being single and a top-notch undercover old lady detective, to being married to someone she hadn’t planned on marrying and having half the neighborhood living in her house.
She shook her head as she remembered Humboldt Snowshoe Notorious following Ditty Belle, Mavis, Delight, and Lulu into her house, interrupting the wedding. The man––Snowshoe, as they all called him––who’d been dragged into the house and brought to Granny’s was just as mystified and surprised when he found out the reason he’d been manhandled by Snowshoe, as had been Granny and Amelia. But, before they could say anything, the house shook and a loud explosion filled the air.
Julie and I would love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
