Stop me and die one

by on April 4, 2014

And today I can welcome to the blog Rebecca Douglas, and her ‘cosy detective’ novel – Death By Ice Cream. My teenager appears to be attempting Death by Chocolate at the moment, so i’m rather glad of an alternative to put before her, especially now that we have some occasional sunshine to boast about.

What do you serve when all you have in the freezer is an ice-cold corpse?

JJ MacGregor and her best friend Kitty Padgett struggle to hold the Pismawallops PTA together, and new volunteer Letitia LeMoine isn’t making it any easier. But when Letitia’s strangled corpse turns up where the ice cream bars should have been, things get a whole lot worse. JJ has to shoehorn in a search for the killer along with all her other problems: divorce, a 15-year-old son with his first girlfriend, a desperate race to complete the Yearbook on time, and her own tendency to get all wobbly-kneed around the Chief of Police. JJ just can’t help asking a few questions. But a loud mouth and insatiable curiosity can be a dangerous combination. Especially when someone wants her stopped.

Rebecca is annoyingly modest, and this is the most I have been able to extort from her about herself.

Rebecca Douglass was raised on an Island in Puget Sound only a little bigger than Pismawallops. She now lives and writes in the San Francisco Bay Area, and can be found on-line at and on Facebook as The Ninja Librarian. Her books include the tall tales for all ages, The Ninja Librarian and Return to Skunk Corners. Rebecca likes to spend her time outdoors, when not writing or working to make the schools the best they can be. She spends her free time bicycling and running, and her vacations hiking, camping and backpacking.

And now the links: the bit you are all chafing to get to, I know…


Book purchase links of all kinds:

Finally, there’s a rafflecopter. Actually, I thought that was something on one of those dreadful videogames the teenager’s boyfriend is always playing, but thankfully it isn’t. It’s even book related.

Rebecca swears this is the link and code, but I wouldn’t trust her if I were you. She’s a writer – she makes things up.

    Hey, wait a minute, Will–I sent you a guest post, didn’t I. (Please tell me I did. I need more coffee.) You’re going to have to feature me again!

    Thanks for the boost, brother!

    • No guest post, sadly. You need more than just coffee, Rebecca. Send it along if you find it…

        Oh, geez. On it’s way. I suppose I wanted to revise it one more time.

  2. Authors. Never stop editing, do they?

  3. Blimey, It appears there’s there someone out there who’s scattier than I am. That’s some feat! It looks interesting, actually anyone with a site called ninjalibrarian has got to be interesting, full stop (or I suppose she’d say period).



  4. Rebecca was so busy ninja-ing, that she cut her own post into bits….

    Um, yeah, that’s it! I’m telling you, the flakiness gets worse with age!

    And the Ninja Librarian site was of course initially just about my first book, because at the time I was too short-sighted to realize that there would be more. Many more, I hope! But since being a Ninja librarian is totally cool, I’ve just adopted the persona and run with it.
