    Hi, Cheesemonger. I just happened upon your twitter and lover your site. I’m writing The Cheese Shop Mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime, the first in the series to come out next year, and hope you’ll check out my site as well. I’m also writing a “foodie” blog with 5 other mystery writers, Mystery Lovers Kitchen. Hope you’ll come on over and offer a comment or two. Love your cat Spaudling Gray! In the Cheese Shop Mysteries, my protagonist, a cheese shop owner in Ohio, has a ragdoll cat named Rags. His history is on my website.

    Great to “cyber-meet” you.
