Character Interview

What is your current state of mind? Dazed and confused Ha-ha!

What do you feel most passionately about? Continuing the legacy of my best friend Kate who created a local store in Heartsford WI-Community Craft, before her tragic young death.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would be less impulsive and have a heart for people like Kate did. She created a sense of community bond and spirit like no other. I want to bring the people of Heartsford together the way she did.

What you do/will like best about the other main character(s)?
What annoys you? What makes you laugh? Detective Liam Nash annoys me sometimes, but I guess it’s because we’re both passionate about certain things and yet approach them differently. My cousin Heidi makes me laugh-she’s a stich! My sister Ellie makes me laugh too but she’s a bit more serious than our cousin.

What is in your refrigerator right now? On your bedroom floor? On your nightstand? In your garbage can? In my refrigerator- a bottle of French vanilla creamer. I LOVE a good cup of java. On my bedroom floor-a blue and yellow star quilt hand sewn by a quilter from Community Craft. On my nightstand-A book from my favorite mystery author: Holly Quinn (ha-ha you don’t have to print this, but I couldn’t resist LOL) In my garbage can-a leftover pizza box from the Corner Grill and an empty container of dog treats.

Complete the following sentence: I am the kind of person who ____won’t stop until I uncover the truth. I like to know people’s motives for why they do the things they do.

What early event shaped you the most? Losing my best friend from high school in a tragic tractor accident and then taking over her store-Community Craft.

If you could go back in time for one day, where would you go? To the last day I spoke with Kate.

What is the one word you would use to define yourself? What is the one word others would use I would describe myself as tenacious. Others would describe me as impulsive I think?

What is your most treasured possession?  Bara, my golden retriever but he’s not a possession…he’s my love!

For fans of Betty Hechtman and Maggie Sefton, the latest craft frenzy is Holly Quinn’s Handcrafted series debut.

Sammy Kane just moved back to her hometown to run a craft store. But when the owner of a nearby yarn shop is murdered, Sammy will needle little help finding the killer.

When a heartbroken Samantha “Sammy” Kane returns to her hometown of Heartsford, WI, for her best friend Kate’s funeral, she learns that Kate’s much-loved craft store is in danger of perishing with its owner. Confounding all her expectations of the life she would live, Sammy moves back home with her golden retriever and takes over Community Craft. A few doors down Main Street, fellow new arrival Ingrid Wilson has just opened the Yarn Barn, a real “purl” of a shop. But when Sammy strolls over to see if Ingrid could use a little help, she finds Ingrid’s dead body—with a green aluminum knitting needle lodged in her throat.
Detective Liam Nash is thrown for a loop as every single citizen of Heartsford seems to have a theory about Ingrid’s murder. And nearly everyone in town seems to be a suspect. But the last time Sammy did any sleuthing was as a little moppet. And this is not fun and games. Sammy is eager to help the handsome Liam—who seems to be endlessly inventive in finding reasons to talk with her—and when Liam arrests affable woodworker Miles Danbury, Sammy puts everything on the line to help clear Miles.
As the case comes dangerously close to unraveling, Sammy must stitch the clues together. But the killer has other plans—and if Sammy’s not careful, she may wind up in a perilous knot in A Crafter Knits a Clue, the first warm and woolly yarn of Holly Quinn’s new Handcrafted mysteries.
