Two Tall Tails is Here!

September 6th, 2016


Sofie Kelly and Sofie Ryan have teamed up–easy since we’re the same person–to bring you a Magical Cats novella and a Second Chance novella.

In The Cat Burglar Kathleen’s good friend Maggie says items are being stolen from the local artists’ co-op. She doesn’t want to call the police, because the main suspects are all close friends. Luckily, Owen and Hercules are there to put their paws on the truth!

In No More Pussyfooting Around Sarah Grayson and her elderly friend Tom Harris are having some issues with the nephew of a neighbor. Is he just a pain in the neck, or actually a threat to the neighborhood? Sarah and Elvis are on the case.

Soft by Sofie 5

September 5th, 2015

Thank you so much for all the positive comments you’ve made about my knitting. (Yes, I have made another prayer shawl. I just need to photograph it.) I appreciate the encouragement.

This charcoal gray infinity scarf is very soft. I’m thinking about doing another one in a lighter shade of gray.
