My latest book,CAT TALES KITTY CAPERS AND MORE,is about an elderly lady and the feline family of seven who adoptei:l her. It is a story of how they made her llfe more enjoyable and healthier. The book is not just about cats. Part two,MORE,is also about dogs,horses,turtles,and even a pet pig, named Leadbelly. Iam an artist and the book is illustrated with more than forty copies of my paintings.
How did you come up with the idea?
I came up with the idea for this book from the weekly letters I received from Ruth, the owner of the cats and also from her daily journals.
What kind of research did you do before and during the writing of your book?
I did research verifying the statements I made in my book pertaining to the health benefits of having a pet. Love is the most iml)<)rtant health attribute we have and animals are one of nature's best sources of love.
