How Well Do You Know Odelia?

Since next Saturday is the official launch party of TWICE AS DEAD, my 6th Odelia Grey mystery, it seemed fitting that she be the subject of today’s 5 Truths/5 Lies blog.
So here they are: 5 true statements and 5 lies about Odelia Patience Grey, the 50-something, plus size paralegal known by her friends as “Corpse Magnet.”
1.       Odelia and her boss, Mike Steele, have kissed romantically.
2.       Odelia’s cat, Seamus, was once dyed green.
3.       Odelia has been shot twice.
4.       Odelia’s favorite lunchbox as a kid had Zorro on it.
5.       Odelia has been arrested.
6.       Odelia has a thing for actor Alan Rickman.
7.       Odelia’s favorite cookies are Samoas.
8.       Odelia’s real mother died when she was 5; Grace is her step-mother.
9.       Odelia got married with a broken leg.
10.   Odelia’s nose twitches when she’s annoyed.

Win a book!  The commenter on the Criminal Minds blog today that gets the most right will win a copy of TWICE AS DEAD. In case of a tie or ties, the winner will be picked at random from those with the most correct answers.  Comments must be placed no later than 9pm PT on Sunday, June 19th.
