The HUMAN enjoys writing - and I often help, lying in the den, purring inspiration - that is, when I am not egging her on to play with me and my "ballie" (I do so love a game of catch!) It wasnt' long before she noticed my suberb interviewing chops, and thus was born this blog! To date I have interviewed many popular authors, including Janet Evanovich, Mary Janice Davidson and Michelle Rowen, to name but a few! (My dream interview, Nora Roberts aka JD Robb, has not happened yet - but I have hope!)
One day the human's boss told her, "Why don't you write a book about your cat?" and thus was born NICK - although in the first version he talked (yes, talked!) unfortunately that didn't fly too well so now he's more of a silent partner to Nora Charles, sandwich shop owner, former investigative reporter and amateur sleuth - and thus were born the NICK AND NORA MYSTERIES, debuting sometime in 2014! (date TBA) And of course moi is the inspiration for NICK...the star (don't let anyone tell you otherwise). Watch for our debut volume, entitled MEOW IF IT'S MURDER! coming to bookstores, Nooks and Kindles everywhere courtesy of Penguin/Berkeley Prime Crime!
I am also the official spokescat for Nathan Fillion (TV Castle) charity, KIDS NEED TO READ! The HUMAN and I spearhead a fundraiser every summer! to learn more about this worthwhile charity, please visit KIDS NEED TO READ
And this is my brother, MAXX - I do so love to wrestle with him and bite his neck! Even though the Human always makes me stop! As you can see, he's a bit taller and slimmer than me.....
And these are our two sisters, or as the Human calls them "The old ladies! Play nice!"
Trixie - Age 16 (going on seventeen!) Eats like a horse, too.
Folks, adopt shelter cats! We make great pets! Honest!
Other cats my HUMAN has had over the years:
Misty and Phyllis - both shelter cats!
