Q&A with Stella St. Claire


How did you select your narrator?

Machelle tried out for me and I feel in love with her warm and homely voice. I thought she would make the perfect narrator for a cozy mystery!

Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?

There is a coffee foodtruck at my local dog park and this was the inspiration for the murder in Barking up the Wrong Bakery!

How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?

Doogle, my dog, is my biggest support. Taking him for a walk refreshes me a great deal and helps keep me simplify ideas, he keeps me focused on what matters. Reading my reviews and readers’ emails keep me motivated to keep writing!

Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?

Yes, I listen to an audiobook every month. I adore the format! I listen to a book while I’m doing a mundane task like laundry. It makes dull tasks so much enjoyable.!

If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles?

Olivia Rickard would be played by Olivia Munn.

Janelle Allendale would be played by Mandy Moore.

Andrew Patterson would be played by Timothy Olyphant
