Staying in with Milo James Fowler

Having been a teacher (and an author) myself, it gives me great pleasure to welcome another teacher and author Milo James Fowler to Linda’s Book Bag to stay in with me today.

If you’re an author who’d also like to stay in with me to tell me about one of your books, please click here for more details.

Staying in with Milo James Fowler

Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag Milo. Thanks so much for staying in with me. 

Thanks for hosting. The weather outside is frightful.

Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?

I’ve brought my newest release Vic Boyo, Doofus Detective in: Double Murders are Twice as Bad. I’ve heard it makes readers laugh out loud, and I’d say we’re all in need of a few good chuckles these days.

(The way my life has been of late I could certainly do with a few laughs Milo.)

What can we expect from an evening in with Vic Boyo, Doofus Detective in: Double Murders are Twice as Bad?

Bogart

A good belly laugh could be in store for anyone who picks up a copy of Vic Boyo, Doofus Detective. He’s part Sam Spade, part Inspector Clouseau, and part something else. Think Steve Carell from The Office transplanted into a 1930s hardboiled noir, and you’ve got the makings of this screwball detective story.

(Sounds quite crazy to me.)

Here’s the official blurb: Two murders. One detective. Half a brain.  1931, New York City: Detective Vic Boyo may not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but that doesn’t stop him from solving cases as only he can. With a little luck and a whole lot of gumption, Boyo sets out to find the murderer of a local cop. Problem is, Boyo’s more interested in a gorgeous femme fatale accused of killing her husband. She’s destined for the electric chair, but Boyo’s got a hunch she might be innocent. And nobody gets in the way of Boyo’s hunches, not even Vic Boyo himself.

(You’re right Milo. This really does sound totally screwball!)

What else have you brought along and why? 

tea

I’ve got enough chai tea here for anybody who’s thirsty (a good book-reading beverage, methinks) and a copy of Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue on CD because I’m old school that way. The music keeps me in the mood for Vic Boyo’s crime-fighting antics. Is he a defective detective or a true blue American hero? Read Double Murders are Twice as Bad to find out!

(Oh! A guest who bring any form of tea is always welcome in this house Milo.)

Thanks so much for staying in with me, Milo, to tell me all about Vic Boyo, Doofus Detective in: Double Murders are Twice as Bad. I’ll just put the kettle on for that tea..
