A Character Interview

Enid Carmichael, 80-year-old champion of safety in The Fog Ladies cozy murder mystery series

  1. Do you have a special talent or gift?

I have exceptionally keen hearing. You may not think this is much of a gift, but when you are eighty years old, people do not expect you to have much of anything, let alone ears that work. I hear all kinds of things not intended for me to hear, like the blackmailer and the threats against someone I am certain is the killer.

  1. Tell us about your family.

Family. Hmph. Stanley left me years ago. Clarice says she will never have children. I don’t know why, and I am sorely disappointed, as I’ve been telling her for years, “Just wait till you have children of your own. Then you’ll see what I put up with.” Anyway, I have the Fog Ladies. They are my family now. I can count on them like I can count on San Francisco early morning fog burning off by midday.

  1. Who is the most important person in your life?

Well, that’s easy. But it’s not one person. It’s the gaggle of Fog Ladies. We all live together in an elegant apartment building in San Francisco, growing closer as we grow older. Plus Sarah, the overtired young doctor-in-training. But she has her attributes. Because of her we got to meet a lady killer who hacked up her husband with a machete-like blade they used to trim the hedges. What a woman.

  1. What do you do for fun?

Everything I used to love doesn’t exist anymore. Those detective magazines, for instance. What happened to those? And ten cent coffee. Oh, I do all right in the coffee department. That incident in the ICU doesn’t count.

  1. If someone were to play you in a movie who would it be? 

Julia Child, no question. If she were an actress. And if she wasn’t dead. Darn. She’s my height. I had brown hair like hers before mine was red. We have the same energy, the same joie de vivre. Plus, I believe she liked sherry, which I adore. Or at least she had it on hand for cooking.
