Animals & Authors with Karin Beery

13 Jun

Karin and CooperWriting – they say – is a solitary occupation. But is it? Really? Let’s visit with Karin Beery and ask her about her constant companions.

QPQ: Introduce us to the pets you’re sharing with us today.

KB: I have three fur babies: Bucket and Midgie are my rescue cats, and they’ve been with us for about eight years. Our newest addition is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Cooper.

QPQ: Since you’re an author and you come up with names all the time, how did you come up with these names?

CooperKB: Cooper came with his name, so we kept it (though I’ve been calling him Chuck). Midgie was named after a Tootsie Roll. Bucket…well, I let my husband name him. After offering me several inappropriate names, Bucket was the first normal word out of my husband’s mouth and it stuck.

QPQ: How do they help you in your writing?

KB: Mostly Bucket just likes to sit on my lap and get in the way. I wouldn’t exactly call him helpful. Midgie is a wonderful paperweight who keeps my documents from running away from me. Cooper gets me out of my chair. Sitting too long isn’t good for anyone, and I’ve found that getting up and moving for a bit helps me refocus.

Bucket(black) and Midgie (white)QPQ: I so agree about getting up and moving. They say sitting is the new smoking. Cooper could be adding years to your life!

Have you ever written one of your pets into a story?

KB: I can’t believe it, but I haven’t yet. I think I need to add some more animals to my novels.

QPQ: Tell us three things you and your pets have in common.

KB: Midgie and I both love to bask in the sun. Bucket and I both talk a lot. Cooper and I are both crazy about my husband.

All good things to have in common.  🙂  Thank you for visiting here at the Quid Pro Quills. Where on the web can readers connect with you and your books?
