Back in Duck Again By Mary Catherine Roberts, the Pet Psychic
Back in Duck Again
By Mary Catherine Roberts
From Dae’s Christmas Past
By Joyce and Jim Lavene
I have been in many places in my lifetime but one of my favorite spots is Duck, North Carolina. You won’t find a more charming nook in which to live, work, and dream.
I regret that my life took me away from Duck many years ago. I was looking for something – something I never found – though I looked far and wide. Now here I am, back in Duck again.
I’ve been married many times. I know marriage isn’t for me. I’ve made and lost fortunes in big cities and golden shores across the sea. I think this might be my last move. I’m considering settling in Duck for good.
People have written stories about me. I’m a pet psychic, you see. I can talk to animals of any kind though, not just dogs, cats, and turtles. My most famous exploit happened in Wilmington, North Carolina when I was working for the local radio station with my own call-in show. People could call and ask me questions about their pets. I tried to answer the best I could. I solved a murder and it made the newspapers and was caught in fiction as The Telltale Turtle.
I was in Charlotte, North Carolina briefly where I was in another novel, Fruit of the Poisoned Tree. I only made a cameo appearance in that book when I helped out a local pet owner, Dr. Peggy Lee. She was having problems with her Great Dane.
Now it appears that I will be in another novel with a fictionalized account of what Mayor Dae O’Donnell of Duck and I did to help free the Outer Banks from the return of a great evil. It’s an interesting enough book, I suppose, but not as exciting as the real thing!
I’m not sure what I’ll do with myself here in Duck, but I am considering staying. I love Dae and her friends. They’ve made great improvements in Duck since I left. It’s quite invigorating living so close to the sea. Maybe this is what I was looking for all along.
