2 - Assuming I haven't read it, why should I?
Karen E. Olson: PRETTY IN INK is all about drag queens and who's trying to kill them. Brett Kavanaugh, my tattoo shop owner/amateur sleuth, has a personal reason for getting involved and she finds herself in the middle of a possible terrorist plot as she maneuvers her way around the clues. The book is set in Vegas, which is so much fun and over the top.
3 - What can you tell us about your main character that you hadn't realized until you answered the question?
Karen E. Olson: She's way too nosy but can't help herself.
4 - What's your favorite scene and why?
Karen E. Olson: The first scene in the book, when Britney Brassieres gets hit with a wayward champagne cork and topples over on her six inch heels. Chaos ensues, and Brett matches wits with a responding cop, but not in the way you might think. It sets the scene for the entire book.

Karen E. Olson: The third in the series, DRIVEN TO INK, will be out in September. In that one, Brett discovers the body of a Dean Martin impersonator in her trunk.
