Abbey, Sparkle

— filed under: ,

Pen Name: Sparkle Abbey

Comments from the author about writing: Our real names are Mary Lee Woods and Anita Carter and we co-write the Pampered Pets mystery series. We're also friends and neighbors so you'll often find us writing at ML's dining room table or at our local Starbucks. We've chosen to use Sparkle Abbey as our pen name on this series because we liked the idea of combining the names of our two rescue pets - Sparkle (ML's cat) and Abbey (Anita’s dog). Although we've both been writing for a long time, collaboration is a new experience. However, we've had a lot of fun writing and researching the books in this series, and we hope readers have fun reading them.
