It's a Nightmare








Krista Davis interviews Mr. DuBois
for the NEW
Pen & Ink Mysteries
by Krista Davis






Krista: I understand you don't want to blog on Killer Characters, Mr DuBois.

Mr. DuBois: Let us be clear. It is not as though I am computer illiterate. It is simply inappropriate for me to engage in gossip about the Maxwells.

Krista: That's fine. I'm more interested in you.

Mr. DuBois: I can't imagine why. I am the butler of John Maxwell. He is the adventurer. The one who travels to places no sane person would ever wish to go.

Krista: You don't approve of his travels?

Mr. DuBois:  Of course not. Pythons, scorpions, and unsavory characters? Please.


Krista: How long have you been with him?

Mr. DuBois: I came to the Maxwell family as a young man. Of course, John's parents are both gone now. It's just Maxwell and his sister Liddy.

Krista: Does Liddy live in the family mansion with John?

Mr. DuBois: Heaven forbid!

Krista: You're not fond of Liddy?

Mr. DuBois: Miss Liddy is a taxing person. I get quite enough of her when she visits.

Krista: I've been told that you refuse to prepare dinner for Liddy when she comes to the mansion.

Mr. DuBois: There are plenty of restaurants in Georgetown. Maxwell can entertain her elsewhere.

Krista: You seem uncomfortable. Is everything all right?

Mr. DuBois: Miss Liddy has a grown son. A most undesirable fellow. Apparently his roommates have kicked him out, and now he and his mother have set their sights on the carriage house at the mansion.

Krista: Has Maxwell agreed to that?

Mr. DuBois:  No! He has proposed that a young woman move into the carriage house instead. It's a nightmare, I tell you.

Krista: That would be Florrie Fox. What's wrong with her?

Mr. DuBois:  It's simply a nuisance to have anyone else residing on the property. She will come home late at night with noisy friends. They will undoubtedly wish to lounge around the pool, and I shall have to clean up after them. And she has a cat.

Krista: So maybe Maxwell's nephew isn't so bad after all?

Mr. DuBois: We have no choice. If the nephew moves in, he will surely slit our throats as we sleep. Even the presence of a cat on the property is preferable to that.


The covers of COLOR ME MURDER can be colored! It's now available for pre-order. 

I have one final advance review copy (it does not have a colorable cover) to give away. Leave a comment with your email address to enter to win it. Good Luck!

COLOR ME MURDER (coming February 27th)

  1. Mr. DuBois sounds like quite a challenge himself. He apparently is impressed with his own importance. He does seem to have a strong personality, or is that putting it mildly? Looking forward to reading this book and getting to know Mr. DuBois. Thank for the giveaway! Lldawnjm (at) gmail (dot) com.
