Review

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.

More About the Author

I have always written...since gradeschool when I would draft the longest novel I could, I think I made it to page 120. I wrote plays and poems and strange stories about midget aliens. My readership was zero, but that didn't matter. The desire to write was there and set upon my heart.

Always an observer, maybe I wanted to write in order to be the ultimate observer...the one perched outside the page watching the story or situation unfold. I find comfort there...on the perimeter.

College was a great place for me to explore my love of story and expression. With a double major in Journalism and Film I had the ultimate opportunity to feed my imagination and quest for story, words, and meaning behind those words. My favorite movies list includes Broadcast News and All the Presidents Men. Even though I didn't go the way of hard journalism, I am always thrilled by the task of uncovering a story or a situation to find the meaning and more universal lesson.

Currently I try to uncover that meaning through fiction. But I think the pursuit will end up taking many shapes.

Hopefully, through it all, I keep the quest for meaning, compassion, understanding, faith, and discovery at the forefront of my writing. I hope others connect with it. I think we all can learn great lessons from one another...that is what the exchanges between writer and story, reader and story, and writer and reader can do.

Needless to say, I love cats - and all animals. I currently have two cats. This book, as well as my furry friends, is simply "there for me at the end of a stressful day." It is simple, yet very moving. It inspires a connection, so to speak. When this world, with all of its complications, weighs a person down, this beautifully illustrated book of touching little stories can make life a bit brighter! Many thanks to the author and the artist!

While I found some of the written pieces two schmaltzy, the cat paintings are excellent, for me better than the "inspriational" dialogue. Would make a good little gift for a cat lover.

This is a delightful book with wonderful illustrations by Lesley Anne Ivory. I got it primarily for the pictures, although the text was nice too. If you like great pictures of (primarily) Maine Coone kitties, this is a book you will enjoy. It was easy to tell that very cat in the book came from royalty! : - )

As usual, Lesley Anne Ivory's cat paintings are lovely. How does one measure such talent? I bought this book for my friend's birthday, because she's a cat lover, and I'm sure she'll be thrilled with the beauty of it.
