CHIT CHAT with Catt Ramsey, Star of "A Doggone Scandal" by Teresa Inge

My  name is Catt Ramsey and I live in Virginia Beach with my Yorkshire Terriers, Cagney and Lacey. I am the owner of the Woof-Pack Dog Walkers. My dogs and I always seem to be in the wrong place at the right time when dead bodies turn up.  Together, we sniff out the bad guys to solve crimes. Our latest adventures are detailed in “A Doggone Scandal” by Teresa Inge in the 2nd Mutt Mystery, To Fetch a Scoundrel, Four Fun “Tails” of Scandal and Murder.

What makes you laugh? Animals.

Are you married? No.

What’s your most significant human-to-human relationship? My sister Emma, who is a dog walker at my business the Woof-Pack Dog Walkers, and my saving grace.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Both. With dogs, I am an extrovert. At home, I tend to be an introvert.

What’s something you do when no one is watching? I help others whenever possible and give to animal causes.
About your canine sidekick, how long has s/he been with you?  Cagney and Lacey are Yorkshire Terriers. They have been with me for five years this spring.

How did you know Cagney and Lacey were the right dogs for you? Their eyes. They both wanted to be loved.

You can read about Catt’s escapades in Teresa Inge’s story “A Doggone Scandal,” one of four stories included in To Fetch a Scoundrel, Four Fun “Tails” of Scandal and Murder.

The Rest of the World Could Learn a lot  From a Day in Elementary School

Rosie: Hello, Richard. You and your wife Kathy have traveled the road from your roles as rural Virginia parents to that of parents of two professional baseball athletes. Your older son Justin plans to continue his MLB career once we reach our “new normal” in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Your first book, Rocks Across the Pond (2012), is a beautiful, grand book. I say grand because it is large, like a coffee table book. The subtitle says it all: “Lessons Learned. Stories Told.” Dogs seem to be part of those lessons. The Mutt Mysteries authors learned you were authors and dog lovers. You’ve met other RVA writers on your trips to talk to children at schools. It’s through one such author that I connected with you, and we are grateful that you and Kathy wrote the foreword to the newest Mutt Mysteries book, To Fetch a Scoundrel. Your first book gave readers a look at your lives. Your second book, The Shelter Gang a…


I composed this blog while on the road to an emergency management Mass Care Symposium. Sound intriguing? Let’s begin with the definition of “mass care.” It’s the capability to provide immediate shelter, feeding centers, basic first aid, bulk distribution of needed items, and related services to persons affected by a large-scale incident. You may be comforted to know that the Federal Emergency Management Administration — FEMA — has a mass care strategy, and that FEMA, along with the American Red Cross formed a National Mass Care Council around 2010/2011. That council is co-chaired by the American Red Cross, FEMA, the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA), and the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD), and is comprised of members from Big City Emergency Managers (, federal Department of Health and Human Services, Feeding America (, North American Mission Board–Southern Baptist Convention (with their Southern Bap…

UNLEASH THE MUTTS featuring "Ruff Goodbye" by Rosemary Shomaker

Dogs yearn to run free! Our story mutts are no exception! They will be unleashed on March 3 when To Fetch a Scoundrel hits the sales floor. This week we're offering “treats” to the reader, in the form of insights into why the author chose a particular setting, and a brief excerpt of the story.
Today’s feature: “RUFF GOODBYE” by Rosemary Shomaker
We asked Rosemary why she chose to set her story where she did: What prompted me to set “Ruff Goodbye" in a bar and a funeral home? I set the story in a bar and a funeral home because the contrast in settings interested me. When I think of funeral homes, I think of decorum, seriousness, and containment. As the ashes or body of the deceased are “contained” in an urn or a casket, so are the grief and emotions of funeral home visitors contained—until, for some, the bareness of death causes true feelings and honesty to leak or flare. We’ve all seen it. The sobs, outburst, or physical crumpling of one attendee dissolves the composure of other…
