An Interview with an AC Cobra

I'm so pleased to welcome Vinnie to Cozy Up With Kathy today. If you've read any of Tonya Kappes' Spies and Spells Books, you'll know that Vinnie is Maggie Park's familiar. GET WITCH OR DIE TRYING is the latest book in the series and it was just released this week!

Kathy: You are a very unique familiar. Do the other familiars treat you differently since you're a car?

V: We don't have a lot of interaction since I have my own place in the garage. They all have to live in the house and I just mind my own pistons. 

Kathy: What's your favorite thing about being a 1965 red AC Cobra in Historic Old Louisville, Kentucky?

V: The attention! What man doesn't love to be loved on, rubbed on and taken pictures of? 

Kathy: How did you come to be a familiar in the first place?

V: Maggie Park has always been a handful. She likes to play hard and work harder. She's not one to sit by and make potions for the family diner, The Brew. She keeps her nose into everything and loves to be on the go. The only way her family was able to truly keep an eye on their spitfire was to give her a cool car. . .and there I am!

Kathy: What's your favorite thing about being a familiar?

V: I take real pride in keeping Maggie safe. 

Kathy: What's the most difficult thing about being Maggie's familiar?

V: Sometime she doesn't listen when I feel danger and she flips on the manual switch making it difficult for me to do my job. 

Kathy: What do you like to do in your free time? Do you have any hobbies?

V: I love to keep my chrome shiny and interior fresh. I love when the mechanic buffs me to a high shine and cleans my battery. 

Kathy: If you had the ability to change anything about yourself would you? And if so, what would you change?

V: The ability to have an eject button in the passenger seat. Sometimes Maggie doesn't have a good sense of male figures. She thinks they are all sweet and nice when I know they are there for one thing. I try to tell her about men, but she doesn't listen, so I have to take matters into my own hands. Sometimes I take them on a little joy ride to give them a little scare or heat their seat up to sizzling. 

Kathy: Are you able to share any hints as to what Maggie is up to now?

V: Now that she's become a full time employee at the Interpol of SKUL as a citizen spy, I can only imagine what shenanigans she's going to get us into.



When a few women end up dead and the only thing they have in common is SKUL special agent Mick Jasper, he is immediately under investigation and stripped of his badge. SKUL hires Maggie Park not only because of her ability to blend in with society when undercover but her uncanny ability to know things she shouldn't.

Little does the agency know that Maggie is a witch and has special powers she uses to her advantage to clear special agent Jasper's name and hopefully bring the real killer to justice before the killer figures out who she really is.
