Songibrd by Gail Meath / #Interview #BlogTour @zooloosBT @GailMeathAuthor


It’s all fun and games, until someone gets killed.

Meet Jax Diamond, a sharp, sophisticated, skilled, no-nonsense private detective. Or is he? Glued to his side is his canine partner, Ace, a fierce and unrelenting German Shepherd whose mere presence terrorizes criminals into submission. Well, maybe not.

But the two of them are a whole lot smarter than they look. And they have their hands full when a playwright’s death is declared natural causes, and his new manuscript worth a million bucks is missing.

Laura Graystone, a beautiful rising Broadway star, is dragged into the heart of their investigation, and she’s none too happy about it. Especially when danger first strikes, and she needs to rely on her own ingenuity to save their hides.

Join Jax, Laura and Ace on a fun yet deadly ride during the Roaring Twenties that takes twists and turns, and a race against time to find the real murderer before he/she/they stop them permanently.




When and where do you prefer to write?

We have a small room in the back of the house with lots of windows, my computer, piano, and shelves of books. It’s my private little haven where I write and read.

Do you need peace and quiet when you are writing?

I love listening to a variety of music while writing and having it in the background, but when I lose myself in writing or reading, I don’t even hear it.

If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?

Agatha Christie

Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?

Hmm. My answer probably would have been very different in my youth, but being older and ‘wiser’, I think I would prefer being portrayed as good now.

Who would you like/have liked to interview?

The Brontë sisters and/or Daphne du Maurier

Where can I find you wen you are not writing/reading?

About five miles away at my daughter’s house. I love spending time with my two little grandchildren.

What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?

At first, a mixture of excitement, fear, and relief. Then, some sadness kicks in when I realize that I’m going to miss my characters.

How do you come up with a title for your book?

Finding titles for a few of my books was easy since they were based upon true female heroines in history. The other titles usually focus on the main concept of the story, itself.

How do you pick a cover for your book?

This answer varies from book-to-book. A few covers I designed myself, and two others were created by a designer with images that I chose.

Songbird was a pre-made cover that I found a year before I even started writing the book. Honestly, I fell in love with cover first and wrote a book around it. The cart before the horse.

Thank you, Gail Meath and Zooloo’s Book Tours
