This week's Humour Club author in the spotlight is Rebecca Douglass:

"After a lifetime of reading, and a decade or more of slinging books at the library and herding cats with the PTA, Rebecca M. Douglass began to turn her experiences into books of her own. That failed to quiet the voices in her head, but seemed to entertain a number of readers, so she wrote some more, which generated still more voices. Despite the unlimited distractions provided by raising sons to the point of leaving home (and preparing to move without forwarding address if necessary to retain that empty nest), not to mention the mountains that keep calling (very hard to resist the urgings of something the size of the Sierra Nevada), she has managed to pen a total of 6.9 books (the 7th is due out soon).

For those who enjoy murder and mayhem with a sense of humor, the Pismawallops PTA mysteries (Death By Ice Cream and Death By Trombone) provide insights into what PTA moms are really like. If you prefer tall tales and even less of a grip on reality, visit Skunk Corners with The Ninja Librarian and the sequels (Return to Skunk Corners and the soon-to-be-released The Problem of Peggy). And, for those who’ve always thought that fantasy was a bit too high-minded, stumble through rescues and escapes with Halitor the Hero, possibly the most hapless hero to ever run in fear from any and all fair maidens.

Why does Rebecca write so many different kinds of books (she's even written an alphabet picture book about backpacking)? We could argue that it’s because she has a rich lifetime of experience that requires expression in—squirrel!"

Thanks, Sonya!

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I was out of town when it posted, touring colleges with Second Son. Just another of the distractions. I'm happy to report that I'm back at work on the 3rd Ninja Librarian book.
