A visit and giveaway from Granny and Julie Seedorf...

Today we have a visit with Julie Seedorf, author of the wildly popular Granny Series! 

If you don't already know Granny here is just a little bit about this wild sleuth....
Granny leads a secret life in the small, unique community of Fuschia, Minnesota. It’s not just her all junk food diet, multiplying pets, or her shocking bedtime attire that makes Granny one in a million. No, Granny is an undercover cop, charged by “the Big Guy” (the town’s police chief) of preventing theft in local stores. Granny takes her job seriously and daily foils many shoplifters using her trusty spiked umbrella and amazing acting skills. When some startlingly brazen burglaries begin to occur that Granny can’t solve, along with mysteriously appearing bad guys, disappearing clerks, and misplaced Corvettes, Granny begins to wonder if she isn’t ready for the wrinkle farm. Maybe, it’s fortuitous when she accidentally-on-purpose falls in the lap of an attractive older gentleman who is soon roped into her wild adventures, as they try to figure out what’s happening in their little town.
Now it is time to get to know a little bit about Julie.....
As human beings, we are always a work in progress. From birth to death we live, hurt, laugh, cry, feel, and with all of those emotions we grow as people, as family members, and as friends. I am a dreamer and feel blessed to have the opportunity in my writing to pass those dreams on to others. I believe you are never too old to dream and to turn those dreams into a creative endeavor. I live in rural Minnesota and I am a wife, mother, and grandmother.

I have worn many hats throughout my lifetime such as working as a waitress, nursing home activities, office manager and finally computer repair person eventually owning my own computer repair business. I never forgot my love of writing and quit my computer business in 2012 after signing a contract with Cozy Cat Press for Granny Hooks A Crook, the first book in my Fuchsia, Minnesota Series.

Adding four more books to the Fuchsia Series, adding a new Brilliant, Minnesota Series and writing a column for local newspapers feeds my writing creativity.

I also dabble a bit in watercolor painting and hope to eventually add pictures to my children’s book series, Granny’s In Trouble.

Oh, and did I tell you I like to be a little bit silly.

  1. This series sounds like a hoot, it is on my TBR list. Thanks for the chance.

  2. This series is hysterical! Great post, Karen!

  3. I've had this series on my "wish" list for some time but life and other review obligations keep getting in the way. I really would love to start at the beginning and just keep reading until I get caught up with Granny.

  4. My Grandma always said one was only as old as their imagination. We often watched Beverly Hillbillies with Irene Ryan. I loved that series. Dis you pattern your Granny after Granny Clampett Although I don't think her name was Clampett, not sure it's been so long or is it just the picture of Granny. Just wondering. But the series looks really fun and I would very much like to read it. Della at deepotter (at) peoplepc (dot) com

  5. I could totally see my Granny Hagan doing this as a side job when she was alive. This sounds like an interesting and totally different series since the character is an older woman. It would be interesting to read.

  6. I've read book 1 and have book 2. 3,4 and 5 are on my wish list!

  7. sounds like a fun series. will have to check it out. love the covers. pugpower63 (at) gmail (dot) com

  8. Hoping to read your Granny books soon.
