Coffee with a canine: Jenn McKinlay-Orf & Lucy

Today's featured duo at Coffee with a Canine: Jenn McKinlay-Orf & Lucy.

McKinlay-Orf writes mysteries under the names Lucy Lawrence and Jenn McKinlay. Lucy is her 10 year old standard poodle; it's no coincidence that she shares a name with one of the pseudonyms.

Stuck on Murder by Lucy Lawrence is McKinlay-Orf's latest novel.

Among the early praise for the novel:
"Interesting, likable, and memorable characters, a picturesque New England town, and a murder as sticky as an intricate decoupage plaque will keep you turning pages in Lucy Lawrence's charming new mystery."
--Sally Goldenbaum, author of the Seaside Knitters Mystery series
McKinlay-Orf is the author of three previous novels under the name Jennifer McKinlay.

And she has another series in the works, under the pen name Jenn McKinlay, set in a cupcake bakery. The first novel in the series, Sprinkle With Murder, is scheduled to be released in March 2010.
