“The Pig Did It is part cozy, part Irish lament, all quirky, and great fun!”
— Jill Miner, Saturn Booksellers, Gaylord, MI
A pig escapes from its pen and roots up the garden of Kitty McCloud, a bestselling novelist who corrects the classics. What the obstreperous little pig unearths is evidence of a possible transgression that the novel's three Irish characters the plagiarizing Kitty, her blood-feud rival Kieran, and a sexy swineherd named Lolly are convinced the other has probably benefited from.
How this hilarious mystery is resolved inspires both comic eloquence and a theatrically colorful canvas depicting the brooding Irish land and seascape.
