Meet Teresa Inge, Luke and Lena

Pens, Paws, and Claws Blogger, Teresa Inge, tells us about her writing and her love for pets. 

 Tell our readers about yourself and your writing.

 I am a short mystery author of several anthologies.

 My stories have been included in the Virginia is for Mysteries series, a collection of short stories set in Virginia.

 My latest publication is in 50 Shades of Cabernet, “Love the Wine You’re With.” The story features Jules Riley who has three things on her mind. Plan the Virginia Beach Wine Fest, rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend, a hot local musician, and keep her sister Em sober. But when Em serves up a deadly appetizer that Jules made, she is accused of murder.

 Tell us about your pets?

 I have two dogs Luke and Lena who were named after my husband’s grandparents. Luke is a country boy, part shepherd, part lab. Lena is a city girl, part shepherd and Husky mix.

 Tell us what you are currently writing?

 I am completing a novella dog walking mystery that includes myself and three other authors. My story, “Hounding the Pavement,” features dogs Cagney and Lacey who help solve a crime and theft.

 Anything else you want to share?

 I am a Sisters in Crime member and president of the Mysteries by the Sea chapter in Chesapeake, Virginia. Our chapter is currently coordinating the Mysteries by the Sea anthology.

 I am also a board of director with the Chesapeake Humane Society and love helping animals.

  1. Love this, city and country dogs! I don’t think you have to worry about names like Cagney and Lacey…but it’s probably worth checking out, as Pam suggested.

  2. Teresa dahling, love this. I remember you telling me about Luke and Lena while at dinner. I think we were interrupted before I got to ask about the character names you’re using. I always get confused with copyright infringements like the use of Coke, etc. Did you have to pay for the privilege of using Cagney and Lacey? Does copyright come into play?

    1. Hi! I’m using Cagney & Lacey who solve the murder and theft! And no I didn’t have to pay to use them. I also really enjoyed dinner with you!
