I deserve a Purple Heart . . .

Yes, me, Gloria Bonatti!  Don’t get me wrong.  I love my granddaughter Julia.  But that girl, well young woman, I should say, will drive me to distraction!

Last year while I was away on a cruise, she got into tons of trouble because of her astrological advice column in the Chronicle, the one she writes anonymously as Ask Zodia.  That set off a small war in the city and she was driven out of her apartment and her life was threatened.  Can you believe those horrible people? 

Ultimately, it all turned out well in the end because she brought down that evil cult and rescued an elderly woman from certain death.  But do you know how I heard about it?  I read about in the newspaper when I got home from my cruise.  Can you believe that?  Oh, sure, Julia explained it all to me very rationally, now that it was all over, but I still almost had a heart attack. 

And now, she’s going to be a bridesmaid at her friend’s wedding this summer.  I'm just hoping she'll meet someone really wonderful.  I mean, it's a wedding.  What could go wrong?  Sigh . . . I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  With Julia, you never know.  Wouldn't surprise me a bit if there isn't another murder.

She's always telling me not to worry.  How can I not worry?  That’s my job.  I just wish she’d settle down and maybe take up a normal profession.  Not astrology!  Not with all those clients coming to her with their problems and inveigling her into murder investigations.  It’s just not right!

Am I being unreasonable?  I don’t think so.  I really do deserve a peaceful life!  I love my granddaughter with all my heart but she’s making me crazy! 

If you don't mind getting frightened out of your wits, you can read about her adventures with that crazy religious cult in The Madness of Mercury and everything that happens at the wedding this summer in All Signs Point to Murder.  Whatever happens, just don't tell me about it, okay?

You can visit my author at her website, at Facebook and Twitter @askzodia.  I just hope Connie di Marco doesn't dream up any more hair raising adventures for my granddaughter!
