The Boo Done It Mystery series started with our dog Boo Radley, named for the To Kill A Mockingbird character played in the movie by Robert Duvall. Our Boo Radley is female. We tend to pick out our pet names before we pick out our pets.
Boo in real life was much as she’s described in the novels TALKING TO THE DEAD GUYS and TEA WITH A DEAD GAL, and in the new short story collection BABY SINGS THE BOOS. Stubborn, beautiful, nervous, hard to control, afraid of thunderstorms (and just about everything else unexpected), and beautiful.
