Inside the Author’s Studio with Katherine Harper

Katherine Harper, more commonly known as Kat, is the main character in Paige Sleuth’s Cozy Cat Caper Mystery series. She has chosen to answer today’s questions.

  1. Sketch of working little people with book.What is your favorite word?  Murder. Well, I don’t know if that’s really a favorite word, but I certainly hear it a lot. And it definitely makes my life interesting.
  2. What is your least favorite word?  No. I’m stubborn.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?  Interacting with animals. I’ve got two cats, Matty and Tom, and they fuel my spirit.
  4. What turns you off?  Cruel people.
  5. What is your favorite curse word?  Fiddlesticks.
  6. What sound or noise do you love?  Nothing beats listening to a cat purring.
  7. What sound or noise do you hate?  My alarm clock. But usually Matty wakes me up in search of breakfast before it goes off.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?  Private investigator. I’m curious anyway, so why not get paid for it?
  9. What profession would you not like to do?  Butcher, for the obvious reasons.
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  The Rainbow Bridge ends right over there, and the cats have been waiting for you.
