The Brother Speaks Again

by Neal Kennersly, brother of Carrie Kennersly, whose adventures are memorialized in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston

Hey.  It's been a long time since I've been here, but my sister Carrie told me it's my turn to blog here again this month.   Like last time, I didn't think I had much of a choice.  I love my sister--and her generosity to me.  We're housemates thanks to her--and her letting me live in her house almost rent-free.

Besides, I won't admit it to her, but I think it's fun to blog here.  I keep track of the posts of others, including Carrie, who talk about our town of Knobcone Heights, what they do here, and how they all somehow get involved in some of the nastiest things that take place in this area.  Including--mostly including--Carrie. 

Somehow, calm and quiet and small Knobcone Heights has become a location where murders have begun to occur.  And somehow my sister has become the person who seems to be solving most of them, outmaneuvering even the local police.

I'm happiest regarding my sister when she engages in what she really knows.  First, she's a veterinary technician.  She also recently became the owner of the human bakery Icing on the Cake, and even more fun she split it in half to create the adjoining Barkery and Biscuits.  There, she bakes and sells some of the healthy dog treats she's created while working for the Knobcone Veterinary Clinic. 

Then, there's her really cute dog, Biscuit, who's part of our family.  I call her Bug, just because.

Anyway, so far Carrie has solved three--yes, count 'em, three--murders around here.  And I won't be surprised if there are more to come.

Of course I'll be supportive of anything she wants to do--and that includes her involvement with one of the veterinarians at the Knobcone Vet Clinic, Dr. Reed Storme.  But I just want my sister to stay happy, healthy and alive.

And me?  Well, I'm still working at the front desk of the Knobcone Heights Resort, where I help check people into the hotel.  And whenever I can, I take people out on hikes, both those sponsored by the Resort and otherwise.  I earn my living that way, and have a lot of fun, especially as a sort of tour guide.  And I most especially enjoy hanging out with Janelle Blaystone, who's a photographer as well as one of Carrie's assistants at her shops... and a murder suspect.

Anyway, I hope you'll think about reading the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries.  You'll for sure have fun reading about my busy sis.

BAD TO THE BONE, the third Barkery & Biscuits Mystery by Linda O. Johnston, was a May 2017 release.  And yes, there are more to come.
