To celebrate the re-release of the Living History Museum Mystery Series, I thought I would introduce you to the animal of the series.
I am an animal lover, so it would be impossible for me to write a novel and not have at least a few animals characters in it. Thankfully, The Living History Museum Mystery Series has plenty of animal characters to entertain readers and myself. Writing the Living History Museum Mystery Series has been so much fun because it takes place on a living history farm, and as a result, there are many animals who appear throughout the series to make Kelsey Cambridge’s life as the Director of Barton Farm a little more exciting and a lot more frustrating.
Here are the animals to lookout for in The Living History Museum Mystery Series:
Frankie: Hayden’s (Kelsey’s son’s) one-eyed tabby cat. He likes Hayden and hates everyone else, including Kelsey.
Tiffin: Kelsey’s loyal corgi, who takes it upon himself to herd everyone at the Farm from the sheep to Kelsey and her Farm employees,
The sheep: the small flock of sheep on the Farm who are constantly breaking out of the pen and running into the visitor center.
Rhett and Scarlet: The Farm’s placid draft horses.
Betty and Mags: The temperamental oxen. No one goes into their pasture without their approval and lives to tell about it.
Gertrude and the hens: A brood of four chickens, who patrol the village side of the Farm. Gertrude the large red hen is their leader. They scare intruders and visitors to Barton Farm alike.
Each of these animals, no matter the size of the part, adds to the color and humor of Barton Farm, and the series just would not be the same without them.
