Blaize Clement described her career in an interview:
I began as a ghost-writer while I was a single mom in graduate school (psychology). Later, under my own name I wrote a couple of parenting books, a gazillion essays and some short fiction, but I didn’t begin to write book-length fiction until I closed my 20-year practice [in Houston].
The blurb for her first title in the series, Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter (2007) tells us a different story. Fortunately, since it is fiction after all.
Dixie Hemingway knows first-hand that many things in life are worse than a dirty litter box. Once happy as a Florida sheriff's deputy, she lost everything when senseless tragedy shattered her world.
Other titles include:
Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund (2007)
Cat Sitter on a Hot Tin Roof (2009 )
Even Cat-Sitters Get the Blues (2010)Raining Cat Sitters and Dogs (2010
Cat Sitter Among the Pigeons (2011)
The Cat Sitter's Pajamas (2012 )
The series is carried on by her son, John Clement. The Cat Sitter's Cradle (2013.) is just out. This title is number 8 in the series. It has both their names on it.
