First Post Challenge

Thank you, Jeanne, (Jeanne Owens, author) for this challenge. It’s my first tag and I’m looking forward to it. I can’t remember offhand what my first post was, so it will be a surprise for everyone.

The rules are:

Copy-paste, link, pingback, etc. your first post.

Identify the post: introduction, story, poem.

Explain why it was your first post.

Nominate five other bloggers.


My first post, April 23, 2013, an introduction:


Mollie Hunt with Tinkerbelle, Registered Pet Partners for the Delta Society.

Mollie Hunt with Tinkerbelle, Registered Pet Partners for the Delta Society.

But it’s not. It’s about getting older, about taking care of cats, about volunteering. It’s about writing. Mostly that.

Nothing is more fulfilling to me than sitting at my computer with my head in a story and a cat on my lap. The two co-mingle well. In fact, that’s where my Crazy Cat Lady Mystery series came from. Well, that’s not totally true: I started Cats’ Eyes, the first in the series, on the beach in Mazatlan. But I was missing my cats, so there you are.

Tinkerbelle is with me now, a black ball of fluff. Tink is my working cat. We are registered Pet Partners for the Delta Society, visiting hospice patients and assisted living facilities to share her healing touch. My CCL protagonist, Lynley Cannon, is also a Pet Partner. In many ways, she’s like me- sixtyish, searching, ex-hippie, but she gets into a lot more trouble.

Which brings me back to what it’s about: I am working hard this year to get my book published. Since I am basically a recluse, I choose to reach out from the comfort of my home. If you are interested in my journey, I invite you to come along.


And there you have it. Things haven’t changed a lot in the past 2 years, though I have published Cats’ Eyes as well as one more, Copy Cats. I am working hard on more Crazy Cat Lady stories; Tinkerbelle and I still visit the catless; I am still a recluse.

About Mollie Hunt

I am the crazy cat lady, animal shelter volunteer, Trekkie, and mystery writer. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and will watch any TV show or movie filmed here. Even though I am of a goodly age (sixty-something) I go to Star Trek conventions in costume and am not afraid to be by myself. I enjoy my life in the cat lane. Words to live by: Spay and neuter; Live long and prosper; Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
