Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Let's talk about witchesand black cats. I just completed an LGBT paranormal novel called Brushwith Catastrophe. It's the sequel to the very popular paranormal novel,SpellCat. Both books are about witches--very contemporary witches who livein New York City and go to college there. One of the key characters in bothbooks is a black cat named Aloysius. In fact, the series is called The AloysiusTales.
 
Black cats have beenconnected with witches from the time of the middle ages and before. Black catshave so many myths and legends associated with them it could fill books. It'slucky to dream of one but unlucky to have one cross your path. If a black cat lieson the bed of a sick person they will die, but a strange black cat found on theporch brings prosperity.  It was largely in the Middle Ages that the black cat becameassociated with evil. Because cats are nocturnal and roam at night, they werebelieved to be supernatural servants of witches, or even witches themselves.
 
In Brush with Catastrophe, my black catis indeed a witches' familiar. His name is Aloysius and he is very powerful butcan only use that power to magnify the power of the witch to whom he is bound.Aloysius is the familiar of  KillianBarth, the most powerful male witch in ten generations and the Witch Master,but early in our story he attaches himself to Sammy Raphael, a young witch withnp perceptible power except prophetic painting. Occasionally, he paintssomething in the middle of the night and what he paints comes true. But hispaintings always seem to be insignificant -- until he paints a picture of a beautifulman and it turns out to be his best freind Ryder whom Sammy has secretly lovedfor years. Ryder, however, has changed so much over the summer vacation thathe's almost unrecognizable. And yet, he's human, not a witch. And then Sammypaints an angel--who turns out to be a witch and a student at Sammy's college.But that angel may just be a devil! And Sammy could end up having to save a lotof the people he loves from that devil! Aloysius always backs a winner. Why ishe backing Sammy?
I loved writing this book. Because it'scontemporary I got to maintain the laws of the natural world and then allow mywitches to violate them a bit. It was fun to ask what the world would be likeif there were witches that appeared to be mere humans but with more power. Andin Brushwith Catastrophe, we learn that they are very much among us.Muwhahahahahha.
