Blog Tour: Mind Games by Heather W. Petty

FAST 5 with Heather W. Petty!

Last book you read:
HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME by Adam Silvera, and my heart will never recover…not ever. I wrote a rambling review of the book and of Adam’s tallness on Goodreads, but you really should just read the book as soon as you can and then find me so we can talk about it. I will most likely weep. You have been warned.

Last thing that made you cry:
This poem by Lucille Clifton:
who would believe them winged
who would believe they could be
beautiful    who would believe
they could fall so in love with mortals
that they would attach themselves
as scars attach and ride the skin
sometimes we hear them in our dreams
rattling their skulls    clicking
their bony fingers
they have heard me beseeching
as i whispered into my own
cupped hands    enough    not me again
but who can distinguish
one human voice
amid such choruses
of desire
Last thing that made you smile:
My daughter and I trying to read from the French edition of LOCK & MORI. She was very impressed at my ability to translate the Title page. (My eighth grade French class finally pays off!!)
Favorite quote:
“In almost every artist's nature is inborn a wanton and treacherous proneness to side with the beauty that breaks hearts.” -- Thomas Mann
Last thing you treated yourself to:
I’m a little tea-obsessed. And my favorite teas right now come from T-WE Teas out of San Francisco. First, because the tea blends are amazing. But also because the descriptions of the teas on the website are hilarious, and every order comes with a cute little note from the person who packed the box. My most recent “treat” was a refill of their Chai Hard blend, which we go through very quickly in my house.
Sherlock Holmes and Miss James “Mori” Moriarty may have closed their first case, but the mystery is far from over in the thrilling sequel to Lock & Mori, perfect for fans of Maureen Johnson and Sherlock.

You know their names. Now discover their beginnings. 

Mori’s abusive father is behind bars…and she has never felt less safe. Threatening letters have started appearing on her doorstep, and the police are receiving anonymous tips suggesting that Mori—not her father—is the Regent’s Park killer. To make matters worse, the police are beginning to believe them.

Through it all, Lock—frustrating, brilliant, gorgeous Lock—is by her side. The two of them set out to discover who is framing Mori, but in a city full of suspects, the task is easier said than done. With the clock ticking, Mori will discover just how far she is willing to go to make sure that justice is served, and no one—not even Lock—will be able to stop her.

Heather Petty has been obsessed with mysteries since she was twelve, which is when she decided that stories about murders in London drawing rooms and English seaside villages were far superior to all other stories. She is the author of the Lock & Mori series. She lives in Reno, Nevada, with her husband, daughter, and four hopelessly devious cats. You can visit her online at
