Sparkle Abbey is the pseudonym of mystery authors Mary Lee Woods and Anita Carter who write the best-selling Pampered Pets Mystery Series for Bell Bridge Books. They live in the Midwest but if they could write anywhere you’d find them on the beach with their laptops and depending on the time of day either an iced tea or a margarita. The current titles in the series are, Desperate Housedogs, Get Fluffy, Kitty, Kitty, Bang, Bang, Yip Tuck, Fifty Shades of Greyhound, The Girl with the Dachshund Title, and Downton Tabby. Desperate Housedogs was an Amazon mystery series bestseller, Barnes & Noble Nook #1 national bestseller, and was nominated for a “Lovely” award.
Both authors are members of RWA, Kiss of Death – RWA Mystery/Suspense chapter, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime as well as Iowa Romance Novelists and Sisters in Crime-Iowa.
They never imagined they’d be writing a series together but they are thrilled it’s worked out this way and happy to share some highlights of the journey.
